Ahhh... Friday I have missed you so. Even though it was busy at work today, I still had time to count the minutes down to ME time. Don't get me wrong I like my job but there is sooo many other things I could happily be doing. One of those things... The Friday Mashup :).

I am so pleased, I made Glamette. What a fabulous honour for one of my little mini canvases, especially when you consider all the wonderful talented cardmakers that join this challenge. Thank so much to the ladies over at The Friday Mashup.

What a fabulous challenge today, Autumn is in the Air.

Create a project with an "Autumn" theme.
Or Create a project using shades of "Yellow & Orange".
Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Autumn project using shades of Yellow & Orange".

I love Autumn, love love love it, tis is my favorite season. So I had fun making this card, this DP is another sheet of paper I have had forever. I flip by it often and always say 'I really should use that', I think I found it in a dollar store.

I coloured the leaves with Orange, Yellow, Greens, Gold and Brown Spica Glitter markers, I did not manage to get the picture to show the little bits of shimmer. I coloured the tree trunk with water color pencils and inked all the edges.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Frances Meyer Inc, Whipper Snipper Designs-Fall Tree, Inkdinkado-Fall Sentiment, misc ribbon.



  1. Nina, I LOVE this!! That image is fantastic and th sentiment is just perfect, especially to have the matching falling leaves! Beautiful!

    Thanks so much for joining us again at The Friday Mashup!

    P.S. We were commenting at the same time :) You live in Victoria? My family went there a few yrs ago when the aircraft carrier my husband was on stopped there. What a beautiful area!

  2. What gorgeous paper!!!!! I also absolutely love how your leaves are trickling down from the tree and how you've highlighted it with your sponged on ink!

  3. Hi Sis -

    Gorgeous mashup! I love that you spent a lot of artistic time and effort on your masterpiece, it shows! You make me long for all the leaves to change already. I was noticing the trees are still full-on green as we drove today so it will be a while.

    Love, Sis

  4. Hi Nina, sometimes the cheap finds in places like dollar stores are just the right item. I really like your paper, it's just perfect for your card and our challenge at the Friday Mashup. So glad you joined us again.
