This is the card that I sent along. That image is from Dreams du Jour and is my favorite from the set! I glittered it in pink, green and yellow although you don't see the sparkle on the screen. I also added glitter on the pink panel as well and a gem in the corner. I just love that bright green lace!! I can't imagine what kind of outfit it would go on, but I think it looks just wonderful on a card!
Also, I am still waiting on some new images from Simply Sista's so we have moved our Showcase to Friday this week. We got to see a few of the new sets coming out and they are so cute! It was hard to pick one!!
And, just in case you were dying to know about our fall foliage tour, I'll talk about that too! It was a wonderful day!! My dad and my youngest brother went - and he brought his new girlfriend!! She is super cute and seems really nice! The trees were just beginning to turn so lots of yellow, some orangey-yellow and very little red. We don't get a lot of red in the trees here in town so I'm not sure about up there. There is a small lake that we drove around and even hiked a short trail to see an OLD cottonwood that was HUGE!! I'll have to post a picture when hubby gets the pics off his camera and I'll tell you how big it was then! I can't wait to see them as I am hoping that maybe it'll be a good pic to send out to family! Then we ate at this restaurant called The Cattle Exchange. SO good! A steak was $25 (which may seem normal to some but I thought was expensive!!) But it WAS HUGE!!! And very tasty!! And the dessert is included in the price. Hubby has been there before and told me about the bread pudding. I was skeptical as the thought of soggy bread doesn't really sound great --- but it was TOO DIE FOR!! I just remembered my mom bought a gallon to bring home - wonder if there is any left??? They also had apple cobbler which had the most yummy crust!! The guys were very patient while we shopped and shopped and walked the small town. All in all, a beautiful day!! I just love getting to spend time with my family - don't you?

For this card I used my SU Markers on. I was hoping my chair would end up looking like suede, you know, with the brush marks in it. Sydney's top is covered with Diamond Dust glitter which you can't see very well, but it's oh so sparkly!! I used the sketch from a card I found by Anna Wight as my layout inspiration!When I first moved out on my own, I bought an old recliner at a garage sale that belonged to a family friend. It was cheap and filled a need but there was a sofa and loveseat set at a local furniture store that was faded denim. I loved it and decided to save money so I could buy it! Sadly, a gal that I worked with bought it before I was able to. As I was coloring these I thought of that set for some reason and decided to fulfill my dream on paper!! She is also colored with prismacolors and baby oil.
Here is the last card in the series. Today, if I just had some expendable cash to blow on a big purchase (and a spare corner) I would order a pink crushed velvet comfy chair in a heartbeat!! Since that will not happen anytime soon, I decided that I'd just give Sydney a totally girly-girl chair. I love flocked anything - I guess b/c I'm such a texture girl. I am always touching things to get the feel of it.
Anyway, thanks for stopping by today!! I love it that you do!! My little man and I baked a zucchini cake this morning and I can smell it now - what a yummy treat we'll have later today! Have a beautiful day!!

I love, loVE, LOVE this card!! I am so happy with how it turned out. This was the second challenge from WCMD that I was able to complete. In the last few weeks, as I've been browsing the gallery at SCS, cher2008 has just been making me oooh and aaah over her cards. So as I was looking for some ribbon to add to my card, I saw this yellow striped that was really wide and thought of her cards. I wanted to attempt the same look and this is what I got. I am so happy with it!! Seriously, I just want to look at and I don't know if I'll ever be able to part with it! Does this ever happen to you???
