Thinking of you today

Thinking of you today 2013

Been a little while since I posted. Been working on my cards and getting things ahead so I can leave town and all I need to do is post the finished card. My mind is going kind of crazy thinking of all the things I have to do, I will get everything done. Going down to Austin to see my brother,  sister and a friend. Not all a fun trip. So lets talk about the card. I ended up making it a GET WELL card with a Fall theme. The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge has started and the twisted for this is “ANYTHING GOES WITH THE TWIST OF FALL”.  The sponsor for this month is Nicecrane designs. If you love Vintage this is the place to go. Here is the STORE and here is the BLOG. The image I used is from Vintage cute kids DSL IV Sheet. If you order the sheet you can get all 6 images and they also come in color.

I have been taking these creative background classes over at CMC with Marie Gamber.


I want to share with you how I got my background. These are the copic I used. This was before I made the card. If you would like to know more about Marie’s really interesting techniques you can click here.

Patricia, this is simply gorgeous! I love your coloring of this sweet image! Love the pretty colors & DP you chose, too! And your background is fabulous!
I may be wrong, but I expect this card is for Georgianne. If it is, she will absolutely love it! I am sending her a card tomorrow. Wishing the best for her. And I hope your trip goes well.
