It has been a very tiring week and it’s only Wednesday!  Actually I have been pretty productive this week but also very contemplative amid a local tragedy that happened over the weekend.  3 high school girls from the community right next to ours were killed in a car accident this past Saturday night.  One of the girls was the sister of one of my older son’s soccer teammates.   It has been a tough week.  I don’t typically like to bring people down when they come visit my blog, but since this is something happening here and has affected me, I just wanted to share.

On to happy thoughts though…  We have a NEW CHALLENGE  going on at MILKCOFFEE CHALLENGE and it is MORE THAN 1 FOLD, so we want to see those FANCY FOLDS!!  You have until Weds., November 21 at 8pm EST to come join us.  You don’t have to use an image from MILKCOFFEE SHOP, but we’d sure love to see one.

Closed card


My image of “Lisbeth – Autumn Taste” can be found in MILKCOFFEE SHOP along with all of the other fabulous images designed by the talented owners of MILKCOFFEE SHOP.   I have colored it with Copics and cut with Nesties, then daubed with Memento ink.   I have tried this fold that I have always been intrigued by, but never took a chance at before.  I think it’s called “twisting easel” or something and it was really quite easy to make!  I added papers  from Bazzill and DP from my stash.  Bling and pearls from My Mind’s Eye, lace from JoAnn, flower from Prima, sentiment from Verve and cut with A. Jillian Vance Designs die.  Hope you like it and will come play along at MILKCOFFEE CHALLENGE!

Additional Challenges:

CREATIVE MOMENTS – more than 1 fold
LEJ DESIGNS – die cuts/punches
CARD CUPIDS – happy Fall y’all
HECK OF A CHALLENGE – 50 shades of Autumn
LIA STAMPZ – Autumn colors
MAD FOR MARKERS – Y and YRs (used YRs on her hair, dress, and shies, Ys and YRs on leaves)
ONE CRAZY STAMPER – anything goes
