Pumpkin Spice to my Latte

Wednesday, October 27, 2021
It's the wonderful Janice's turn to host our latest Little Red Wagon challenge and she's calling Outside! Jan is looking for any and all creations dealing with the great outdoors, animals in their natural habitat, weather, scenery, etc. 

I have spent a great deal of time outdoors this month. In fact, I've been away every weekend! It's a bit much given how busy work has been although the time away has been fantastic and has provided a much-needed break. I've been camping, to two retreats at two different camps up north and took the past two days off work as vacation days in order to spend time further up north to go hiking. It's been quite a month! November will be busy with the Christmas countdown on, but I'll be home more which will be nice as well. 

One of my favourite treats on a cool day this time of year is a pumpkin spice latte. I've had the MFT Sweater Weather stamp sets for a while now (and have inked them up in the past) and thought this challenge would be a perfect opportunity to pull them out. I'm not so sure that a polar bear sporting a cardigan while sipping on a pumpkin spice latte surrounded by a buffalo check sky background would be considered a natural habitat so I'm hoping that Jan looks past those creative liberties and notices the snowdrift and birch trees! I saw a similar card layout on the MFT website so need to give credit for that.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the Girlfriends' Outside creations - and then link up your own projects!

The scene is definitely outside...and who's to say that there's not a cardigan wearing bear in a buffalo checked background somewhere out there? Not me! Delightful card, Kate! Such a cute scene.
Happy to hear you've been able to spend lots of time in the great outdoors. I know that camping and being able to enjoy nature means a lot to you. (:

How wonderful to be off and out and enjoying yourself, no matter what Kate. I love your pumpkin spice and it's sentiment card.

What a creative, wonderfully charming card. I adore the use of a solidly good-sized plaid/check paper as the background for a critter themed card. It feels fresh and looks fantastic!

Sweet little bear and great outdoor card, Kate. Lovely scene. I can believe that you are enjoing your time "outside". I think we all do after the long "Covid Stay at Home" time.

I love the possibility of a polar bear sporting a cardigan while sipping on a pumpkin spice latte surrounded by a buffalo check sky. Wouldn't that be a fun world to be in? I love your cute card Kate, it is just so you. I'm not sure how you would be able to avoid traveling in that wonderful trailer of yours. So glad you are getting some R&R.
