Good morning everyone! It's hard to believe that another month is over isn't it? I'm glad to have October get here though. October just sounds like a cooler month even though I know it typically stays warm here throughout the month.
Did you hear the news that Squigglefly is going to be having another huge release on October 17th and they've added a new artist who will be making her Squigglefly debut at that time! I'm super excited because I've seen some of her work and it's absolutely fantastic!

Today I've made a card using one of the shy bear images. This one is called
Raking It Up and of course it's perfect for the fall. I love the little shy bird in his nest! He looks like he feels quite exposed with all the leaves off the tree.

I colored it with copic markers, chalked the grass and sky, and then stamped some grass sprigs over the chalked grass. I used some more leaves from the tissue paper I got at the dollar store to embellish the top. One of the things I love most about the shy bear images is that Lynne has put in the drawing where shading would be, so it makes it so easy to color and get the shading right. Makes you feel more confident when you color, and more like an artist when you're finished! The words are computer generated.
I made this card for Papercraft Planet's Saturday Sketch Challenge, but I turned the sketch on it's side.
I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday after work and was thrilled to see that they have added tons of stuff to the paper crafting department. One of the things they now have in stock is all of the Spellbinders nestabilities, shapeabilities, and embossabilities! I bought some of the embossing ones and can't wait to find some time to play and experiment with them!
Well, I've got a busy day at work today with it being the end of the month and the end of a quarter to boot! I hope your day is a great one and thanks for taking time to come see what I made!
