Autumn Friendship





It is time for another The Three Musketeers post.  I am posting this on the 10th as I had a Design Team card posted yesterday and I wanted to be sure this image had its own day!  We are ready to showcase the card we all created with the image that Kelly provided this month for Card #13!  I am next for the December challenge, so be sure to come back to see what we create!


For our card this month, Jeanette sent us an image that she said she loved, but was challenged as how to use it.  I too thought it was pretty and I hope my card lives up to her challenge!

I am so happy that Jeanette picked Kelly and I to color up surprise images with her every month.  I do reflect on their friendship every season!!!!!





Here is the inside of my card:





Please check out the other Musketeer's cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's blog along with Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards!  They may post today, or it may have been yesterday--our traditional day to post or it may be upcoming, so be sure to check out their blog for their card!

Thankful For You



This is the second of the two cards I made for Karly's Leaves and Trees swap on SCS.  We were to create cards for any season or holiday as long as we had a tree or leaves on it.  I used another Stampin' up set--Sheltering Tree.  I really like the versatility of this set!

My other card for this swap was posted yesterday--I hope you saw it!

I am sure I will get back some great cards in the swap!

Lovely as a Tree



This is the one of the two cards I made for Karly's Leaves and Trees swap on SCS.  We were to create cards for any season or holiday as long as we had a tree or leaves on it.  I went with my favorite Stampin' up set of all times--Lovely as a Tree.  Will 2016 be the year it finally is retired?  I hope not!

I am sad the photo does not show the sparkly trees very well as I used Stampin' Up's Iridescent Ice Embossing Power.  I think the card looks like trees shining in a dark night with a full moon above................  My second card for this swap will be posted tomorrow--please come back and see it!

I am sure I will get back some great cards in the swap!
