Hey All! As my post title indicates, this is my last post for There's Magic in the Air. I only committed to be on the team until the end of October (so it's not like she threw me out or anything like that! LOL). It has been so much fun working with Nina May and with her images. She is such a wonderful person and an all around sweet human being. I have loved being a part of her team and am very honored to have worked with such great talent. Thanks Nina for including me in your aspirations!
OK, so here is my last card for Nina. The image is called "Autumn Splendor" and the challenge was to be inspired by this photo:
Here is my card:
This is such a great image for the Fall season, and versatile too! I think it would be a great image for a Thanksgiving card too. I colored it as usual with my ccp/oms. I sponged the coloring around the image for a golden Autumn sun look. I used a small circle punch to achieve the "ticket punch" look at each corner (I learned this trick from my blogging buddy in Hawaii - Thanks Jen!) I colored the white pearls with a Bic marker to get the shiny brown look to them. The sentiment is computer generated and it, as well as the image panel, are attached with foam squares for dimension. The background paper is from a DCWV stack from last year. I decorated the inside too, but forgot to take a pic of that! What a dork I am. . .
PLEASE READ THIS:
I wanted to take this opportunity to convey my very heartfelt thanks for all of your encouragement and wishes of good luck for my trying out for the House Mouse design team. As I've read each comment, I just shake my head and wonder how I got so lucky to get the bunch of you. You are wonderful people and it always gives me faith when reading your comments that there are still so many wonderful people in this crazy world we live in. OK, enough of my gushing mush, but I just can't get over how wonderful you all are!
Also, I wanted to apologize for not getting around to your blogs lately. I'm truly sorry about that. But there have been a few things going on that has needed my attention and has taken me away from visiting. But everything is back to normal and I'll be visiting you all soon to catch up! I also need to come see some of my new followers too! I can't wait to come see you all.
That's it! I'll be back on Wednesday with a Wednesday evening post. I'll also let you all know as soon as I know whether or not I made the team! Until then, take good care of yourselves and have a wonderful week!
"God, please help me be the person that my dogs think I am."
