INAS #119 Mostly Yellow and Orange

 Good Morning,

We have a new challenge over at International Art & Soul #119 "Mostly Yellow and Orange".

I had a very big project planned but I ran out of the right colored paper! Don't you hate when that happens?  When the Pandemic struck, I decided that I wouldn't spend any money on crafting. I actually made it almost two years just using up the stuff in my craft room but I got too low on solid colored paper so I had to go to American Cardstock to order more.

Here is the card I decided to make.  It is from Dreaming Tree and it is called Fall Card.

As you can see, it has many layers, four not including the card base. The last two layers were glued together and then glue dotted on to have it stand out a little.  All Dreaming Tree cards come with an envelope file (which I love).  I used orange and yellow gems all around to give it some bling!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Allsorts - #645 Embellish It!

Darling Cardmakers - Awesome Autumn

Country View - Oct. 2021 Autumnal Colors and/or Halloween

Crafts Galore Encore - #92 - ATG

CCC Digi Creations - #130 Autumn and/or Halloween

Girlz Creative Crafts - #17 Autumn

INAS #118- Furry Friends

 Good Afternoon,

I am late with my post.  Friday night was our 44th Wedding Anniversary.  We have actually been together for 48 years, we started dating when I was 16.  My dad asked me to wait until I was 20 to get married so two weeks after I turned 20 we were married.  

Todays challenge at International Art & Soul is a fun one, #118 Furry Friends.

I saw this digital stamp on Dr. Digi and had to have it!  It's called "Doggie Zoom".

A doggie with all of his friends on Zoom!  So cute and funny!  I used a combination of colored pencils and Copic Markers to color.  The paper is really old, it's called "Max & Whiskers" the Missing you Stamp is from Hampton Art.  I think I got it on Amazon.  The brad that's holding the tag is very old too.  I used Spellbinders Card Creator #8 to make the squares.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

A Bit More Time To Craft - #145 September/October - ATG

Crafty Animals - #54 ATG (With Animals)

Crafts Galore Encore - #91 ATG

DLArt - September Linky Challenge - ATG

INAS #117 Fancy Folds

 Good Morning,

We have a new challenge at International Art & Soul Challenge #117 "Fancy Folds".

Warning - There are a lot of photos so you might want to grab a cup of coffee or tea and join me.

I know that fall isn't here yet but I have been in a fall mood.  We have had some chilly nights here in Maryland and it is really making me look forward to fall.

Here is my card:

Lots of folds!  Here is what it looks like folded up and ready to mail.

When I worked on it, I laid it out flat. The paper I used was Carta Bella "Fall Break" and "Sweater Weather"

I used a stamp (that is one of my favorites) that I bought about 14 years ago. I used my square die from Spellbinders called Card Creator 8.

All of the things that I love about Autumn.  I love this time of year.

So yesterday was my birthday!  Whooo Hooo?  I can't believe I am 64 years old. How did that happen?  I feel like I am 18 but my body say no.  Anyway, all of the things that I use for crafts have been breaking.  First my computer, then my printer and my phone.  My husband gave me the best birthday present.  It is a new printer.  The thing that is cool about it is that you only have to change the ink every two years.

I put a bottle of the ink on top the printer so you could see how large it is. I am so excited!  Can't wait to use it.  My last printer printed 12x12 but I never used that feature.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Alphabet Challenge - L is for Leaves

Secret Stamper - #14 Creative Creases

Double Trouble - #92 Fun Fold

Cut It Up - #234 Fall is in the Air

Simply Create Too - #117 - Fall Leaves
