I don't know what's going on in your neck of the woods but here is Michigan we are having the most perfect weather EVER. The trees are turning colors and losing their leaves and everything is beyond beautiful. The temperatures are in the upper 70's and we haven't had rain for days. I've been in a super crafty mood lately and have tons of images colored and ready for use.

Believe it or not this card is not for any of my design teams. It's a card I made "just because." More and more I'm using sketches and loved the sketch I used for this one. It's from The Pink Elephant and I'm getting my card entered just under the wire!
A new challenge started at Fitztown on Monday and I have been tasked with providing some inspiration today. The challenge is
I chose to use "Fish 4" as my inspiration. I colored it with Copics and highlighted it with Stickles "Diamond Ice" glitter glue. I cut the image with a My Favorite Things "Pierced Circle" die. Using a paper from my stash, I highlighted it too with Stickles and added a couple of Jolees stickers to finish off my underwater delight. The sentiment is from my favorite online sentiment shop Create with TLC. The sentiment was cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilities pennant die. I added a spritz of "Perfect Pearls Mist" that is extremely impressive in person and used my 1/2" Crop A Dile "Corner Chomper" as a final touch.

I've used this as an opportunity to get an early start on Christmas cards! Using Fitztown's Winter 10 image, I colored it with Copic markers and die cut and embossed with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Oval. I highlighted the image with 3 bling stars. Next I used a small cut of Recollections Christmas from my stash and embossed it with a Sizzix Christmas ornaments embossing folder. I also cut a small pennant out of glitter paper with a Dienamics Fishtail Flags Stax die. I used Stickles glitter glue to highlight the "berries" on the background paper. For the final finishing touch I used Frantic Stamper's new Petite Poinsettia die to cut and assemble the three gorgeous flowers and highlight the centers with round bling. I just love this card but am also thrilled that it gave me an opportunity to get the early start on Christmas cards that I've never been able to do in the past!
