So, we survived another Monday! Wonder why Monday's are so hard? Monday's are even yukky for retiree's! I had a gloomy day today...stayed in ALL day. Did a craft festival with DD on Saturday from 10-4, and it was and outdoor festival. It got into the 50's, and was a beautiful day, but the sun was high overhead all day, and this poor fair skinned girl got blistered. My neck, nose, chin, cheeks, and eyebrows look ridiculous! Lol.... So, today, I didn't budge. I moisturized all day long, and still feel fiery!
I took time to make one card, but couldn't stand to sit under my halogen lights any more than that!
I've never taken part in a challenge at Card Patterns, and decided this was 'the' week! Below is their Sketch #37. I'm such a rebel - I nearly always turn sketches all kattywampus! This was turned on it's side!
The challenge at There's Magic in the Air, was to use Nina's beautiful free digi image (shown on card below), with a slight twist! DT member, Curt, challenged us to pop up some or all of our image! So, dear Curt...I did!!! I printed the image twice, colored twice, and cut out the geese, all of the fence, the large and small pumpkins. All of these, in addition to the computer generated sentiment, were popped up! It's pretty cool the way popping them up creates shadows!
Other challenges met with this card were:
Created by Hand (Harvest Time),
Scrap & Stamp Saturday (Thankful),
Three Clovers Designs (Nature).
All coloring was done with Kooh-I-Noor colored pencils and low odor mineral spirits.
I really enjoy Nina's images! She posts a free image every Monday that stays up for a week. Run over and check it out!
Well, hope to be back on my feet tomorrow with some more cards to show... have a great night!
Did you know...Coca Cola was originally green!
