Thanks so very much for joining as new followers! Hope you'll take a few minutes to pop over and say a big Hello to these talented crafters. Gosh, I am seeing some blog candy in the future. So you might want to stay tuned and if you see that following list* hit 300 (GOSH, what a big milestone that is to contemplate)...there's gonna be some celebratin'. (*if you follow with Bloglovin, you won't be in the data spreadsheet & your name won't be included in the Random Generator count. So if you're interested, please check the followers' list and add yourself to that list as well. I'd hate to miss including anyone).
We have had some rainy, overcast days here in Upstate South Carolina this week, but today is a perfect sunny Fall day. Blue skies (but there are some fluffy white clouds floating around), nice breeze, and the ground has dried out enough that Mr. could get out to mow the lawns. We finally got a few of the Fall decorations out on the cleaned front porch, but decided to keep it minimal - with the thought of having to pick up and pack it all away again. I'll try to share some pictures.
Still haven't gotten the HTML problem solved. I'll ask again, if anyone knows an HTML expert, I'd appreciate the information. In the meantime, I've left the coding alone before I really hose up things.
When I'm not posting, many times I'm still coloring images or playing with making backgrounds - for when I'm in the mood to get a card ready & posted. Today's card is a pretty Northwoods image I've had colored for a while. It's really more of a Spring card rather than our current season, but I liked it.
- colored with copics, die cut with S/Binder Valiant honor. Did just a bit of stenciling in on the corners. This is such a pretty die. There's also some sparkle added with WoS pens.
- card base was sponged with DI Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn and Worn Lipstick (discovered I don't have the larger size of Picked Raspberry. How did that happen?). Then sprayed with some Tattered Angels gold spray purchased recently on sale. Went to clean the spray head after using the spray, and it was already clogged, just with one use. Some of the metallic sprays are difficult to work with - but one doesn't know until that first spray. Usually flushing the sprayer with water immediately after use helps to avoid this. Not this time. I did get some replacement spray heads, so will try it on this one. Also noticed the moisture of the spray made the card base curl, so it will need some major heavy flattening.
Have a wonderful afternoon, hope it's as lovely where you are, as it is here. Thanks for popping in. Big Hugs.
