Each week the Inspiration Team @ Red Rubber Inspirationals select three projects from all of the just-closed Inspirational participants. These projects are chosen because they truly capture the essence of the Inspirational.

And I was one of them - AWESOME!!
Here is the card that was selected!
Make sure you stop by and check out Red Rubber Inspirationals!
Well, off to make some more cards!

Mid Week Inspiration at FTHS

Welcome FTHS friends to another round of our card sketches.
Here is this week sketch

Sketch084 Inspiration Board

Feel free to choose the sketch, the “tWiSt” or BOTH.
Use any size or shape, feel free to rotate it, flip it and embellish as you like but the sketch should be recognizable !
Here is my take

Paper: Kraft cardstock, Orange & brown textured cardstock
Coloring Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Bazzill Grape Leaves Harvest Collection
I tried CAS......but I felt like I just had to add something. So, I knew I had these awesome fall leaves. I think it turned out nice.
Well hope you join us this week. We would love to see what you create!!

So sorry about the late post. I am currently in Vegas on vacation. I was going to post it last night, but by the time we got back to our room, and the 2 hour difference in time I totally forgot!! And then trying to use the resort computers and not having access to all my programs :(

Here is my project.
Now head over to Stephanie and see what she has created.

Happy October and Weekly inspiration post

Hi everyone - Happy October!!
This is such a BUSY month for me.
On Thursday I leave to go to Vegas for 6 days for a friends wedding.
I have 6 birthdays + 2 co-workers birthdays, my 22nd wedding anniversary and my birthday....WOW!
Here is my inspirational post for this week

And a close up of the image
Image: Flappy Birthday
Paper: Brown card stock, Simple Stories Vintage Bliss
Coloring Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Prima Flowers, Glossy Accents, Spellbinders Labels Three, Smooch Pearlized Topcoat Illuminate, atyou Spica marker 03 Red, Recollections pearls

I just LOVE these Birdbrains!! Faith has them in so many great 'situations'.
My girlfriends and I took a Copic class this past week and really learned a lot! I think now that we know so much more about them, how to and not to use them, the number system, etc we will all get so much better at using them. I have found a nice blue and yellow combo for my birds, but I have always wanted to do a purple one (my fav color). So I gave it a's getting there :)
Don't forget to stop back on Friday for our October blog hop.
This months theme is : Think Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness. This is near and dear to me having lost my maternal grandmother at age 56 to this.
Well.....on to finish packing or I won't be going to Vegas...LOL.
Thanks for stopping by!!
