I Give Up.

Yep. I give up!
I have been taking pictures since about 8:30 this morning, and it's now 11:51 a.m. I'm with DH again this week, and we are staying in the camper. It's so weird...one of the things I so dearly loved about this camper is all of the huge window and lots of light. However, I sure can't get my photos to turn out!
So, I apologize, and they are what they are this week!!! lol...
This first card uses a Stampabilites stamp. It's too much fun not to use once in a while. My two background strips are painted with acrylic paints very messily, and then run through the cuttlebug. Distress ink is Tim Holtz, Antique Linen.

I am entering the above card here:

Unscripted Sketches: Sketch

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: BFF, Buttons Flowers, FRIEND(ship)

A Crafty Little Place: Color Challenge (Blue, Brown, Rust, Gold)

Papertake Weekly: 3 of a Kind (3 buttons)

If the Shoe Fits: Distress


The card below is also a lot of fun. However, I pre-stamped and brought images to color, and can't remember who made the stamps. If you want to know, let me know, and I'll email you the info when I get home!

All coloring of candy corn is done with Copic Spica pens. Moon is sponged with Adirondack Lemonade. CS is Bazzill, and DP is DCWV Autumn Mat Stack.

I'm going to enter the Candy Corn card here:

Let's Ink it Up: Use Halloween Colors

Paper Playtime: Use orange as main color

Paper Romance: Fall or Halloween Card

Card of the Week: Halloween

Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle: Halloween or Fall


Gosh, how did it get to be Wednesday already?

Happy Day!

Patti J.

Fab cards Patti - I especially like the first, that sentiment is hilarious (and sooooo true!)
I'd love to get a nosey round your camper ... I reckon at least half the space must be filled with your crafty goodies! LOL!
