I have been making a lot of 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 cards....maybe I should get some envelopes for them? LOL If anyone knows a cheap on line place to get them, leave me a comment!

This is a two-fer challenge...Firstly, it is for this week's challenge on Res-Q-Challenge...Jean has set up an awesome mind teaser with our Flight medics....She has some blog candy to give away with it for someone who answers it correctly! Just guess where the medics are headed to ( I happen to think they are headed towards Bar Harbour, MI but don't quote me on that! ) and she will chose a name randomly to win! (PSSST...She has cool stuff...) The cute little owl on my card is from jean herself, she cut it out and pieced it all together for me!
For this challenge we were to use Fall colors and something from nature plus and uplifting sentiment!
Secondly the technique lovers challenge this week on SCS was to make Faux Suede...it's really easy and looks so cool! Just run a piece of cardstock through a crimper a few times in different directions then peel the layers apart and viola!

recipe: stamps- Papertrey Ink First Fruits
paper- Basic Grey, Dark Chocolate, vintage cream, really rust
ink- dark chocolate
accessories- tree branch, Die cut Owl, sheer gold ribbon

This card is for the color challenge today...mellow moss, white and kraft...I just can't resist anything with kraft in it! This was an easy card but I like how it came out!

recipe: stamps- Papertrey Ink Boards and Beams
paper- mellow loss, kraft, vintage cream
ink- fresh snow
accessories- ribbon, nestabilities, white EP, paper piercer

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out the challenge and blog candy on Res-Q-Challenge!

Aaaaaaah, D, you used the little owlet! You used him so well, too! Perfect for my challenge and yes, it was ACADIA NATIONAL PARK near Bar Harbor! Beautiful card, missy.
