First up is a card heading off to Freshly Made Sketches, and also into SSS Wednesday Challenge.
Here's the first one:
Every year, I try to have a new image for the grandkids to color and adhere to the place cards they make for our Thanksgiving tables. I'll stamp them, die cut them, and let them color the image to their hearts' content. They'll write the names and what comes next is a hoot. Once the place cards are finished, all those kids gather around the tables and debate who goes where. "Well, I want Jessica to sit by me this year," or "Uncle Pickle Juice should sit by Great Grandpa." I let them have at it, and just listening to their debate cracks me me up as I'm working in the kitchen. This pumpkin, from a C9 set is one of the images the kids will be working with. It also comes with an oak leaf, which we'll use too. I colored this one, and the little fronds with Copics. The sentiment is from HA, and the polkie dotted paper is from a gorgeous 6x6 pad of papers by Photoplay. In real life the whole thing looks rather pretty.
Next up, I'm squeaking in by the skin of my teeth to the Double D Challenge. Fell in love with their mood board, and had to play.
I took inspiration from the frame, the colors, the greenery, and the plaids. My card looks like this:
I stamped a C9 striped base into my plaid look and added a woodgrain frame in white. I cut some fronds with a PS die from a patterned paper scrap, cut another woodgrain frame in brown, and added a Verve sentiment. A gray base completes this card. And since I've taken up so much of your time, I'll stop now and wish you...
