Cheery Lynn leaf dies + a variety of fall/autumn challenges = happy me!!
Here's the list of galleries I'm entering:
The Pink Elephant #268~Embossing (card 1)
Freshly Made Sketches #154 (Card 2)
4 Crafty Chicks #212~Fall and Simply Create Too #70~Fall/Autumn (both cards)
My first card features a trio of leaves that I sponged, smooshed into Versamark, sprinkled with clear embossing powder, heat set, then planted atop a new leafy embossing folder. Shimmery...
NOTE: Totally chuffed and honoured to be selected as TPE winner with this embossed card. THANK YOU!
For my second, I sponged a wee panel, added a gold maple leaf, and a strip of brown and...purple. Yes, weird colour choice, but it sort of works. My inspiration was the striped sweater my colleague was wearing on Friday: gold, rust, light green...and purple. It looked amazing on her, especially since it wasn't a run-of-the-mill combination. Not sure if it translates well on my card, but in real life it 'seems' to work. If I add 'birthday' to the sentiment, perhaps that lends it guy-card potential....
We're planning to hike to Boom Lake (once it warms up a bit...still a chill in the air, but temps ae supposed to climb to 26C/79F later...), which will be a first for me. I'm intrigued by the description of a trail, winding through "a picturesque forest, with snow-capped mountains rearing over the treetops, that opens up onto a beautiful, large, alpine lake sitting directly at timberline and right below the jagged edge of the continental divide." Off to get my hiking duds on...
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
