This is from a tshirt ? !

Inspiration over at splitcoast was a shop with lots of Halloween clothing ... and some kiddy tie dye shirt with a cat on top of a candy corn inspired this card.

Sketching around

This is a fun sketch to play with. On the hedgehog one I used my tab punch to create the unusual edge, on the cat one I used a nestie.

Tuesday teapot gone buggy

Tuesday is one of my favorite days for challenges on the internet. Mothermark has a different teapot every Tuesday to inspire card making. Today's was the ladybug teapot seen below. I made a couple of cards based on that photo.

Handmade paper

This was inspired by the FS135 challenge at splitcoast. I am having such fun doing my own backgrounds. This was on watercolor paper and really picked up the color better than the cardstock I have been using.

Torn paper

FS 135 at splitcoast got me tearing paper ... and this is what I ended up with.

Generic card

Not sure what this card is going to say --- maybe thanks or happy fall or happy birthday. It was inspired by Lori -- LMcAree at splitcoast.

Which one?

Well, whadday think, straight brads or crooked? On one I used versamark along the edge to get a thick row of silver embossing, on the other I just rubbed the edges on the versamark pad. Not sure which look I prefer. I definitely think using the versamark marker to write "hello" made it way too heavy a line.
LOVE my hand colored paper, that is a fun technique to do. Inspired by Lori at Splitcoast.
