Happy Monday!!.

Good morning everyone! I was able to get a good stack of cards finished this weekend! I did have all the coloring and decoupage finished; so all I had to do was put the cards together LOL! Sometimes that can take me a while too though!!

We had a really good weekend! I did the school fall festival thing.. and that was fail, but at least I know now. My mother brought over lunch on Sunday and we watched Monster Inc. University Sunday afternoon. It is really cook here! I love the cold weather. The time change has me out of whack LOL! I will adjust to that though. What else? I have no idea LOL But it was a really good weekend!

Just want to throw out a quick reminder to go over to Open-Minded Crafting Fun to the DT Call!! We need a bunch of crafters to get started :)  I would love to see a bunch apply!! Make sure you follow over there too so you don't miss out on all the awesome sponsor spotlights and the challenges beginning after the start of the year!
Open-Minded Crafting Fun Challenges

Here is a card for today!! Hope you enjoy:





The image is a Wee Stamps image - Autumn Happiness. I absolutely adore her images! The image is colored with my Prismacolor pencils and my Gamsol. There is absolutely zero decoupage on this card!! I know I know!! Unbelievable!! LOL  But I only had one image printed.. and I can never get them the same size. So, I just colored the one and that is it! The papers are all left over from last year.. I'm trying to use my scraps up!! :)  The scalloped oval and the oval are Spellbinders. I added the three brads and the leaf and swirl are both stickers and the leaf on the inside as well. All three stickers are glittery too. I added a little bit of stickles to the green on the little dragons back. I distressed the edges of some of the papers. I also used Copic Opaque White to add a little bit of detail. And that is it!! Love this little guy. :)

Top Tip Tuesday Tip: Gamsol is awesome and I've learned a lot playing with it. My tip is this... You have to line the color along the edge and pull it down with the gamsol. Don't add color all over the image or you will not get your shading; there will be too much color. You only need a little!
