Challenge #178 "Thankful"

It's Election Day.  Here in Oregon, voting is done by mail.  I voted 2 weeks ago.  Now it's time for all the returns.  I do hope your candidate has won.  Aren't we lucky to live in a country where WE can vote? 

This fortnights challenge is Thankful.  Be it gratitude or maybe just a thank you, to enter make a creation that shows being thankful.  Let's see who our sponsor(s) are for this challenge. 

PRIZE:  3 Digital Images

PRIZE:  $10 Gift Certificate

PRIZE:  $10 Gift Certificate

PRIZE:  $12 Gift Certificate

Did you see how many sponsor(s) we have this challenge?  Please my crafties, visit each one and please leave some love.  For this challenge, I have used an image from Fred-She-Said called Pumpkin Bouquet Digi.  The digi's from Fred-She-Said are wonderful.  Clean and crisp and a joy to work with.  Go check them out.

So here is what I came up with.  The front bouquet is printed and reduced to fit the area of the card front.  Inside is the actual image that I colored and chalked the background.  (Of course I have a list of all colors used.  Just email me)  The card design is from Diana Tunnicliff.  I love her designs.  so here is my creation.
The front of the card.  I cut the outline using Recollections paper.  The green
is mirror cardstock.

The top inside of the card.

This is the Pumpkin Bouquet Digi that I hand colored using
Prismacolors pencils and chalked the background.

That's it for this challenge.  November 11th is Veterans day.  Please thank a veteran for his/her service.  Bright blessings for now,

Challenge #176 Fancy Folds

Hello all.  This weeks post is going to be short but sweet.  First lets see who our sponsor(s) are.

PRIZE:  $15 Dollar Gift Certificate

This fortnights challenge is Fancy Folds.  I found one on  Splitcoast Stampers website.  This is one I have never tried before.  It looks really hard but once you see how this card base it cut, it is super simple to put together.  So here is what I came up with.

This is the card collasped

The front

The back

The total card

Well the first mistake I made with this card, I should have taken the pictures with another color background.  Black on black just doesn't cut it.  I will change this with black bases.  The card was super fast and very easy to put together.  Give it a shot!

Thank you so much for visiting. Oh, Oh I promised a picture of my daughters wedding.  Here you go.  It is a day I will cherish forever!  Bright blessings, Jana

Isn't she beautiful.  Her father said she was a princess!  Thank you for looking.
