Tuesday Trigger: Apache tears in the key of Autumn

I almost forgot to do this weeks Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World!!

Here is my take (well...2 of them....I did one, then had a different idea! Cath, both cards are entered!)

Untitled Untitled
 I was inspired by the colors! so fun and bright! The first one was my original idea....then, it was so busy, i tried to tone it down a bit
. I'd also like to enter both of these cards into FEstive Friday #19:

Thanks for visiting my blog! I have 3 more cards I made today to enter....but my computer isn't liking me much right now so I might wait til tomorrow to enter them!!!


MUSE #39

I made a ton of cards today! Gonna post the ones that are due if I have time I'll post em all!  Here is the first one....for this weeks MUSE challenge:


Here is the MUSE card by Marion Vagg:

Mine is yeah...WAY distressed! but, I did use the elements of Marions card. I have chevrons instead of straight lines in the one corner....and notebook paper instead of a straight line...and hot air balloons instead of a bird. and mine is a little more busy. But, this is how I was inspired!!!

Thankyou for visiting my blog today!

Happy Hauntings!


wow did i have zero mojo tonight!!! this card was after what seemed like a million attempts that ended up in the trash! but alas...i have a card.....and it even fulfilled all of the challenges i was attempting to do as well!  
challenge list:
1.  Dynamic Duos #75:

2.  The Friday Mashup #132.  I chose to just use orange here....but stay tuned.....tomorrow I will finish my project that mashes leaves AND orange ;)

3.  CASology week 66:

I was tempted to post the other card that was just sooooo yeah....I didn't. it's bad!

On another note.....yesterday was exciting!  I finally...finally...FINALLY....filed my divorce papers!!! woohoo!!! As long as he goes and signs them , I could be officially DIVORCED from him in a few weeks!  I'm so excited. I mean.....Jon and I have been living happily together for a while, but I am still legally 'married'. I had to do it on my own, since I can't afford a lawyer. I finally did it! I can't wait to get the final decree in the mail. It feels so good to have just filed!!!

Anyways....thanks for visiting my blog!

 I made this card tonight for a coworker of mine who's last day is tomorrow. She got a new job and I'm going to miss her!!! I'm so happy for her that she found a great job in her field though, so....congrats to Valerie!!!!! Of course....a few challenges involved here. I used the sketch from CAS(E) this sketch

and...once again, I played with colors!!! Blended different shades of distress ink, sprayed it with water while still on the block, then stamped onto watercolor paper.  I just love this technique!!! The yellow lantern is actually the second generation stamp too....the first stamp was too intense, I liked it when I stamped it a second time better.   So yes, I'm entering this in Moxie Fab World's Color Media Challenge (again, for the millionth time.....)!

that's all!!!

on another note.....some sort of exciting news...
well...i dunno......i think i will wait until it happens on friday to tell my news...its pretty exciting to me, i hope you will come back to hear it!!!!!

thanks for visiting my blog today!
