Ombre Teal

The challenge form Just U Girls this week is Shade of Teal:
I need a few more cards for my sister's birthday gift.  She likes cards that are encouraging and CAS.
I used Iced Spruce Distress Oxide to create the ombre effect on the heat embossed strip.  Since I didn't have the exact paper to match, I inked a piece of white paper before I die cut "Prayers".  I really like this layout with the inking for added interest.  Come play along with us at Words 2 Craft By where ur glass is half full!!

Falling Leaves

Just Us Girls has a photo challenge this week:
I needed a fall card for a family that does not do Halloween. 
Our leaves have been boring this year.  Not enough rain, and way too warm late in the season for pretty colors.  I had to make my own! Be sure to pop by Words 2 Craft By for our heroes challenge.

Thanks and Giving

Try Stampin' On Tuesday has a sketch challenge:
And Time Out has this one:
I love fall colors.  This year I am seeing a lot of teal mixed in and I love that too!!
This Neat and Tangled sentiment needs to be the focal point, and this sketch is perfect for it!  The striped paper is from Echo Park's That My Boy pad.

W2CB #70 Reminder - Always Be...

This month's W2CB challenge is based on the following phrase: 

Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman.  
Then always be Batman.  Source Unknown

 Batman is a selfless, flawed hero.  Kids of all ages (including my husband, a major fan) love him.  Many of my cards are donated to Cards for Soldiers, and they never have enough cards for boys.  I made an SVG and cut a bunch of these with my KNK Zing. 
 Black base, gold oval, black bat, rounded corners - done!  Super cute and easy to mass produce.  Be sure to share your hero, bat or other project with us at Words 2 Craft By through November 13.
