It'ssssss Fridayyyy! Which means its one day closer to my personal fave shopping day! My mom and I have planned a shopping getaway for Sat. So I will not post until late tommorrow. I'll give you a peek at the goodies we got. Okay on to the card.
Atc are becoming my fave to do for swaps you can get 10 out of 1 81/2 x11 sheet of paper. This is one I did for a color challenge swap. The color challenge was pumpkin pie, more mustard, mellow moss. These color just screamed fall to me but I didnt really want to do anything fall so this is what I came up with. Watercoloring is not something I feel Im very good at but I was very pleased with how my pear turned out. I watercolored the pear with reinkers I think it is hands down the best way to watercolor. All layers are distressed except the more mustard base. The mellow moss also has some DTP. Ribbon is mellow moss also. I love the distressed look I seldom do a card without distressing. The pear is also popped up another thing I very seldom leave off a card. It just always seems to give that extra oommphhh!

I Have A Blog!

This was my first post today on Splitcoast so I figured why stop there. I look at some amazing blogs everyday and wanted to give it a go myself. So here it is. I hope you enjoy looking at my creations as much as I enjoy making them. This is a card I made for my DH a few months back for an upcoming promotion that he received.
Card layout was from pocketcard. I used So Saffron to sponge around the chicken image that was stamped in Timber brown Staz-On and watercolored. I stamped the pocket card base with flannel plaid in Chocolate Chip. Circle of Frienship is stamped in Chocolate Chip with the inside 1/2" circle stamped in So Saffron and popped up.
