Well, we definitely got a lot done around the house this weekend. It was such a GORGEOUS weekend (finally!) and we spent most of it outside. We raked and blew most of the leaves out of the yard, moved the empty boxes, took the rubbish to the dump, and moved the furniture around to a more permanent position. I even made pancakes and apple crisp yesterday! Go me! hahahaha
It was so nice outside that I bearly spent any time inside (which is why I forgot to take photos of the house too - sorry!), but I did manage to make a card, yes, just one, for today's There She Goes challenge (TSG81). Trendsetter Holly created a fantastic sketch for us all!
Even though the leaves have all but gone from the trees around these parts, I still have that fall fever going on. So I pulled that beautiful set by Chris Dark, Bountiful Blessings.
Using my reinkers and aquapainter brush, I colored in the cornucopia in a bunch of rich colors - everything from SU's Ruby Red to Not Quite Navy was used in that image! Then I was going to go with BG's Pyrus paper collection again, but I just got Cosmo Cricket's Circa 1934 collection from DieCutsRUs and HAD to use it instead! And because I used a sentiment in the main panel, I made the tucked element from a few embellishments instead.
To be eligible for the TSG giveaway, create a card that uses the sketch provided then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the Mr. Linky that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (Nov. 22). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!
Good luck and thanks so much for popping in today!
