Anything Goes at Mo's # 151 and Something for Moi

It's the first Thursday of the Month so you know what that means, it's Anything Goes at Mo's. So once again, the skies the limit so use you imagination and let your creative juices flow and lets see what you come up with.  Just remember you must use one of Mo's images and you're good to go.

As for me, I had to have this Fall Fairy the second I saw it and once again decided to merge it with the pumpkins.  I love the fall maybe because I love the colors or maybe because I'm a fall baby, or maybe because it's that crispness in the air, but whatever it is, this is what I came up with.

I haven't made a criss cross card in ages and wanted to make something different, so I decided to make one of those. I used my cricut to cut the circle at 4 1/2 " using the George cartridge since I don't have any large nesties and merged Fall Fairy Jensen which you can find HERE and Pumpkins which you can find HERE

I found this poem on-line and thought it was perfect for the criss-cross card:

I also made a shawl for myself. Hey with the fall coming up, it will come to good  and since  I've been knitting for everyone else, I decided knit this shawl for moi and I have a few more lined up, but another baby blanket for a shower for my sister in law in between that and a sweater I am making for myself which should be finished shortly.  Again this is a free pattern on Raverly and is called Acadian and is knit from tip to tip.

 Yarn: Lion Brand Martha Stewart Crafts Extra Soft Wool Blend-Buttercream (4 skeins)
Pattern: Acadian
I will be entering this into the following challenges:

1. Lollipops Crafts: HERE Fall Frolic
2. Cute Card Thursday: HERE Autumn Gold
3. Make it Monday: HERE Always Anthing Goes
4. Fab n Funky: HERE The Colors of Autumn

 I hope I inspired someone to join in on the fun, I can't wait to see what you come up with, just don't for get to use one of Mo's images. If you need more inspiration don't forget to visit the rest of the teams blogs they really out did themselves and came up with some great ideas just click HERE to see what they came up with and as Pat always says, don't forget to leave them a little love.
