Hi there...are all you northern hemisphere dwellers enjoying some cooler fall weather? I am loving the bite of fall in the air.

 Today's card is for the challenge over at Inspired by All the Little Things.

I love the browns with just a touch of color.  For my card the main panel is watercolor paper white embossed with some leaf shapes from A Muse Studio.  I spritzed the paper with water then sprinkled on some brown brusho's in the open area of the panel.  I tilted and spun the card to get coverage all over, but not within the leaves.   Lastly, I wet the leaves lightly, and sprinkle more of the brown brusho powder into the leaf areas, I did not brush them out or add more water. I wanted the intense colors of the power pigments showing all the different shades.

I mounted it onto some textured tissue paper on a card base and added the thanks die cut (I think its from SSS).

Thanks so much for stopping by!

trick or treat

I am back home in Maryland. It was a difficult summer for me. I had erratic sleeping patterns, the humidity kicked my butt; I was miserable, out of sorts and lacking mojo for much of  August and September. I managed to make cards to post while I was visiting my Dad in California during October but few of them made me smile.

I think that I have finally gotten a good sleeping pattern, I have been home for 5 days and have been in bed by midnight and up by 8 each morning without an alarm.  I am feeling much more productive, and the weather is beginning to cool with far less humidity than a month ago.  I am feeling so much better.  Last night I sat down to color some cards and enjoyed the process. YEA!

Now, I know I said those crazy cat stamps kinda creeped me out...but when I saw Sandy Allnock's post combining them with the crazy dogs...well I had to get them.  They are perfect for Halloween. 

For Addicted to stamps Make your Mark

These cards are for my crafty group...I still have a few more to make, but thought I would post these now.

I colored them with copics so I am submitting one to the Addicted to Stamps and More -Make your Mark challenge.  And another to the Just us Girls Photo Inspiration challenge.

Some Birthday Cats

One of the crafty ladies and our niece share the same birthday.  Both ladies are cat lovers, so I had fun making a couple of cat cards.  I was running a bit late with my planning this mojo went into early hibernation in September.  So, I figured cat cards would suit the recipients, and heck...I love the furry felines.

 Our neice will love this, her cat is a ginger tabby. He is a love bug!

My friend Candy has a couple of cats, so I think she will appreciate this one.

Cookie our neighbor cat was visting...I don't want to know what she found so interesting under that entertainment cabinet; but I had to laugh as she worked to get out from where she wriggled her way in.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
