Hi everyone! I have a card and a Riley/Baxter video to share with you today! They have been really getting along well! Baxter is learning the art of playing and getting our routines down and overall fitting in to our lives! His skin condition is improving and he's gained about five pounds since he came to live with us. He had a vet appointment last night and she said he looks great! She has cut his baths down to one a week!
My card is one I made for the Clean and Simple challenge on the Outlawz site. The theme of the challenge is Autumn and I chose to use the Three Little Pumpkins image drawn by Fawn Palmer for Squigglefly.
I love coloring these pumpkins! It's fun to make them each a little lighter or darker and they are great images to practice your highlighting and shading on. You can make the light source come at a different angle each time you color!
I cut these out and then popped them up on a background that was made with one of the Martha Stewart anywhere punches. I added some little yellowish pearls to the center of some of the medallions.
The Happy Thanksgiving is another beautiful calligraphy quote available at Squigglefly and is drawn by Roann Mathias. I scored a line above the sentiment and placed the background over the scored line. It's a clean and simple card, but so elegant I think!
Okay, here's the promised video. I hope you enjoy it, and if you can't see it in my blog you can view it directly at Youtube HERE.
