Pamela designed the next fun and pretty card to share with us.  She used Shoe Queen, Leopard Heel Backs, and Victorian Boot.  Next to diamonds, I think it's shoes that just may be a girl's best friend!!

Pamela - Quotes and Sayings Challenge

Next we have this beautiful card by Bernadette Tolley.  She created this wonderful fall card using Cover-A-CardTM Large Paisley, and the quote, Watch The Leaves.  Isn't that just lovely with those leaves and that bow!  If you look carefully or click on the card, you may see the Paisley embossing and it looks like a white patent leather pattern.

Just look at this card designed by Deloris Thiede, Stamping At The Lake.  She used the single stamp and quote Autumn to create her masterpiece.  Wow, you can just feel the breeze and leaves too!

Our last pretty card for this post is by Tracey Kuzniak at My World of Cards, Scrapbooking, and Triathlons. She used Cover-A-CardTM Large Paisley and Small Paisley. The quote is computer generated.  A very lovely card, Tracey.  I love that lace and the vintage way it ties the whole card together.
