Our World Tuesday

Zombie Walk 2016

I was sitting at a bench fiddling with my camera and
a woman came up to me and asked
if there was something unusual going on.
She was visiting from Australia.
I had to LOL, and explained that
this was a Halloween tradition and no,
people in my city did not normally look like this.
She was very relieved.

Gecko Galz Fall, Into Autumn

Is it beautiful where you live?
It is here.
Mind you, this is my most favorite month.
Glorious Autumn.
I made some samples to help get your creative juices flowing,
using Gecko Galz products:

These were all done digitally, using images from
the Autumn Magic Digital Stamp Set.
I just painted them.
(That's why there are kind of messy. lol)
and a few ATC's:

These ATC's we so easy.
I printed out background papers from the
Gypsy Market paper pak.
I used a flourish stamp 
(sorry, it's so old, I could not tell you who it's by
even if my life depended on it.
I embossed the flourish using
Ranger Gold Embossing Powder
 I printed out images from
the beautiful Autumn Magic digital stamp set 
and coloured them with various Ranger Distress inks:
Mustard Seed, Rusty Hinge, Shabby Shutters, and
Orange Marmalade.
Then I just looked in my box of treasures which never seems to
get any smaller
and embellished them just the way I wanted to.
Pop dots for the image and
there you go!
Autumn ATC's!
You can make any thing  at all with images
and papers from the 
But you already know that don't you?

You also know that each month all the
DT members have a free stamp for you, right?
Here is this month's from me:
Here is an example I did for you.
I just printed it out on cardstock and coloured it to make an ATC.

And don't forget to enter the 
Fall Into Autumn
Customer Challenge
for the month of October.

and to wrap up,
here is my sample for the customer challenge:
You can find all the deets 
I hope to see you there!

Pink Christmas

Each year in October, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Stephanie and Lauren 
host a challenge where they ask everyone to make holiday cards that are, 
(as the title suggests, lol) *PINK*... and then 
they each donate $2 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation 
for each card that gets linked up. 
Even though I don't often get to link up with them
and make too many cards,
I wouldn't miss this for anything.
I made a few pink cards for the cause:

You have until October 19th,
 plenty of time to get in on
Pink Christmas too!
Get all the deets HERE

And Link Pink
for the cause!

See ya over there!
