A 2nd Challenge today......Peaceful Forest

The Technique Challenge today is called Retiform. I had never done this before, and it was fun and easy.
I used my brayer with four different green inks and some post it notes, then inked up my Just For Fun image of pine trees in Artichoke ink, and stamped it on the brayering. Then I versamarked and heat embossed the same image (offset a little) in WHITE, and added a gold star brad. Took only ten minutes.
I added this to the CAS challenge as well, since it was so quick and easy. Thanks for looking.

Sparkly Snowflakes

I just LOVE a five minute card!!

The CAS today was to use eyelets or brads. Obviously, I had held onto these sparkly silver brads forevah! just to use for this challenge.

All I used was one set of stamps, one color (brocade blue), and seven brads. Works for me! Another Christmas card done. (I think I'd better be careful.....when we go away Nov. 8th -15th, I may not have much to do!!)

The sun is bright. A perfect Fall day for DH to rake. Did you notice I didn't say ME?? The yard is not my job. In fact, DH is wondering what IS my job.LOL! Have a great one! Hugs to you all.
