I will hopefully daily have a card for this month of October.

I am playing along with Hope You can Cling to Challenges at Splitcoaststampers. It is a wonderful cause, and brings cheer and hope to many battling cancer. These cards will be sent to Houston,UT MD Anderson Cancer Center.

SO the first challenge is to make a window card in the inside- Inner Strength

season love

I used MFT mod patterns, trio snowflake and christmas sentiment. I added sequins for a fun look, I added some stickles to the snowflake after distressing it. Love how the circle stax was perfect for the window
here is a close ip of the snowflake
The second challenge is to add red or orange or both for Courage and Strength, so I added both
I used Rubber stampeded stamp and colored it with my copics, added some yellow for the base, the sentiment was added with sweet tooth ink, I added some red gems and a ribbon.- I am adding it to Pile it on- leaves
The third challenge for Oct 1 scared me, I am not one to do CAS cards.- keep it flat- Flat is fabulous.  I had seen Jennifer McGuire do a card with triangles where she first added white pigment ink and then offset it with another ink.
Since I had MFT triangles stamp and die I used that to create a mask and work on this card
I had to add the flower on the top, all that white space did not go well with me. I love it when others do it but somehow I cannot. I used many MFT inks- sweet tooth, razzle berry, fuse green, limeade, blu Raspberry, Orange Fizz, Lemon Drop, and red hot.
I am adding the first and last card in Simon Says Stamp- going dotty.
Thank you for visiting and for your sweet comments.
