Make A Card With Christy #4

Hi there!
Have any of you been making cards for 
the Cards That Care card drive for the elderly?
If you have, GREAT!
If you haven't, please consider helping with this 
wonderful and worthy cause.
You still have until November 30th to participate,
and not that it's the focus, but there are
lots of great prizes to be won as well!

I've been cranking out as many as I can,
and I thought I'd share a few of them with you
over the next few days.

Here's the first one I made:

And I even had time to film a video!
Click on the bottom right to watch it in HD on YouTube.
And if you wouldn't mind rating my video by leaving
a thumbs up or a comment, I'd sure appreciate it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Lawnscaping Challenge #22

Hey, all!
We have a brand-new challenge for you
with a brand-new theme -- inspiration
in the form of this gorgeous fall photo!

Our sponsor this round is the wonderful Lawn Fawn

and the winner will receive this fabulous prize:

Nice, huh? 
I know I still have a few sets on my wishlist!

On to my card:

I drew heavily on the beautiful elements
of the inspiration photo.
I tried to pull in the colors, the burlap,
and especially the apples.
I wanted to give my apples a little place to live, 
so I drew this little bushel basket
and colored it in with Copic Markers.
I used a masking technique to layer my apples inside.

I hope you like it!

Please stop by the rest of the design team members
and take a look at their inspired creations:
and our most honored guest designer,
the fabulous Jennifer McGuire!

Also, don't forget to pop over to the 
for all the details on how to play along.

See you there!
