CAS Watercolour November 2018 Challenge & Triplet Update

A card for this month's CAS Watercolour

It took me 3 times to come up with this card.  I first tried with my Distress Inks, then tried my Gansai Tambi and I didn't care for either of these.  Then I decided to try my Inktense Pencils for that watercolor look, which I liked much better.
Avery Elle Holiday Bouquet
PTI's Bold Borders for the sentiment
PTI's Pierced Feature Frame Oval

And I have had many requests for a triplet update.
On the 26th they turned 6 months old.  Wow time flies.  And they are just the cutest and sweetest babies. (well most of the time).  Justin seems to be the one who needs more attention.  Lol  He is rolling over, then after about 10 seconds gets mad cause he can't get back over yet.  Connor is turning to the side in his sleep and on the verge of turning over.  Anna turned over a couple of times several weeks ago but hasn't done so since.
They are all talking, squealing and laughing.  Oh my gosh it is just so precious to see.  They had their 6 month check up and seem to be closing the gap from the premature status.  
Here you go, you asked for pictures and there were so many cutes ones.

They were going to be Goldilocks and the 3 bears for Halloween but had their check up and 7 shots apiece so didn't go out.

The Card Concept #101 Rustic Fall

A rustic fall card for The Card Concept

I was inspired by the fall colors using The Ton Fresh Cut Dahlias and PTI's Autumn Pumpkins in CP inks.
Clean and Simple, but sorry I added the Nuvo drops.  Think I got carried away.

Thanks for stopping by.

Color Throwdown #517 & Birthday Card for Avery

Here is a card for this week's CTD using the colors below

I made a really easy card using Pretty Pink Posh Cherry Blossoms as a background and PTI's Banner Style and Keep It Simple Birthday for the sentiment

This is a card I made for my Granddaughter Avery who will be 13 on November 3rd.  She is quite excited to finally be a teen.  I remember those days, (sort of). Haha!
I used this cute little Santoro Holly that I got from my lovely friend Birgit at our retreat last March and colored her with Prisma colored pencils.
The die is PTI's Pierced Feature Frames - Oval

Thanks for stopping by.

Make It Monday #341 Painted Background Brushstokes

A card for this week's MIM with Dawn
I used my Kuretake paints for my background and PTI's Shape Shifters Circle #3 Die to make this Get Well Card

Dawn's cards
I started my card this morning, my only day of crafting, but was interrupted to go watch my dad from 1-3, so it is hard to continue with any mojo.

And tomorrow I get to go help with those babies who are now 6 months old and are talking, smiling and laughing.   In addition to that, they are on the verge of rolling over.  They are getting so fun.  They were out of town last week so it's been over a week since I have seen them.  Can't wait.

Thanks for stopping by.

Just Us Girls #464 Photo Week

This is my last week as Guest Designer for JUGS.
I want to thank all of you fabulous ladies for asking me to be your GD this month.  It has been so much fun and such an honor.
Thanks again....

This week it is Photo Week
I always take photos so literally and really struggled with this card.  In fact, we had this photo on one of our MM challenges and I think I struggled then too.  
So then, I just decided to just go for the obvious, red and white.
I used a stamp set that came with my Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.  SC Design, Scandi Christmas
After I made my first card and wasn't too happy with it, this came in the mail and immediately I thought this would work for this week's card.
The sentiment is from Neat & Tangled, Merry and Bright.

Thanks for stopping by.
