The year is slowing coming to a close. Can you believe it's October already? This is breast cancer awareness month so be you are up-to-date with your mammogram and take care of your breast health. As usual in October expect to see lots of BCA cards but this isn't one of them. October is also Halloween month and I absolutely love making Halloween inspired cards. Expect to so lots of those here as well.
I used Trixxie Treat from Kenny K and printed her "big head" style. I colored here with Copic Markers adding Stickles, Liquid Glass and a white Gelly Roll pen to add highlights and additional interest. I cut and embossed the image with a Spellbinder Nestabilities Oval die. The background paper is from Martha Stewart. I also used "Scary Words" dies from Frantic Stamper highlighted with white ink. Finally I popped the image up with foam dots.
I don't know what's going on in your neck of the woods but here is Michigan we are having the most perfect weather EVER. The trees are turning colors and losing their leaves and everything is beyond beautiful. The temperatures are in the upper 70's and we haven't had rain for days. I've been in a super crafty mood lately and have tons of images colored and ready for use.

Believe it or not this card is not for any of my design teams. It's a card I made "just because." More and more I'm using sketches and loved the sketch I used for this one. It's from The Pink Elephant and I'm getting my card entered just under the wire!
A new challenge started at Fitztown on Monday and I have been tasked with providing some inspiration today. The challenge is
I chose to use "Fish 4" as my inspiration. I colored it with Copics and highlighted it with Stickles "Diamond Ice" glitter glue. I cut the image with a My Favorite Things "Pierced Circle" die. Using a paper from my stash, I highlighted it too with Stickles and added a couple of Jolees stickers to finish off my underwater delight. The sentiment is from my favorite online sentiment shop Create with TLC. The sentiment was cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilities pennant die. I added a spritz of "Perfect Pearls Mist" that is extremely impressive in person and used my 1/2" Crop A Dile "Corner Chomper" as a final touch.
