Autumn by the Old Well

The For Fun Challenge this week is to get ready for fall. Think fall when making your card or layout. But no Halloween yet.

The Challenge is sponsored by Digi Doodles this week. We thank them for the images they provided for the DT. I especially like their Americana/rustic images. The Old Well is one of them. There is also an old barn, milk cans and quilt images. The winner this week will receive a $10 gift certificate to Digi Doodles.

This Critter is Under the Weather

Paper Cutz Challenge is to use a stamped, digital or Cricut cut critter on your card, layout or project.

This image is from Phindy's Place, so I am also submitting it to the Phindy Challenge. I don't usually double submit but I really like the way this one turned out.

Best Friend

Puppies & kitties make great friends. They listen without judging. They always forgive us. They sense when we need a hug. This week's Soft Pencil image spotlight is on our young lady with her dog.
Does this image remind you of a favorite pet??

No Black No Orange

Think Halloween: black & orange, right? Wrong! This week's Paper Cutz Challenge is to make a Halloween card without using any black or orange. So I chose an image from Sew Many Cards. It reminds me of my grandson Mason. Something about the belly maybe.... Anyways, I used purple and yellow mainly with greys for the kitty and accents of green and white. Let's see what you can create!

Phindy Goes Green

The Phindy Challenge this week is to go "green". That can be in color or in reusing materials. I chose to use the color green and an image in a green (natural) setting.

Glitter For Fun

The For Fun Challenge this week is to use glitz & glitter! The trees are an image from The Angel Company's Hedgehog Happiness Hostess stamp set. They are colored with 3 shades of green Copic markers. I used icicle and green Stickles for most of the glittery look. The rest are crystal and pearl stickers. The ribbon is from a St. Patrick's Day ribbon set, but works well for the Christmas holidays as well.

Apple of My Eye

Sorry I'm late with this week's Soft Pencil creation. I had it all planned out in my brain and then life intervened. I didn't want to mess it up so I delayed it instead. The image is part of the Back to School images, but also works as a note too - You Are the Apple of My Eye!
The patterned papers are DCWV Grade School Stack and the green solid cardstock for the worm and leaf/stem is also DCWV. The white "chalk" marks were made with Versa Magic cloud white.

Michu & Ratiny go Back to School

A new image from Elizabeth at Soft Pencil: our favorite Michu and friend Ratiny. They are ready to go to school or just to write a note.
The DP is DCWV school mat stack. The glittery button is from Oriental Trading. The image is colored with Copic markers.


I took a Copics coloring class last week. I used some of the techniques I learned in coloring this image for the Phindys Challenge. The theme this week is Christmas.
