My Favorite Technique!
Happy Tuesday! It is especially great for me because we have the day off today because of voting at the schools in town. I am fighting a massive cold and NEED it gone for Saturday, the big Holiday Craft Fair is in Boston this weekend and my sisters, daughter and I go every year. I can not miss it because it is the big start to my Christmas shopping. I plan on loading up on meds and climbing back into bed to sleep the day away.
It being Tuesday means it is also time for another fantastic challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. This week Kristen is really making it fun for everyone, the challenge is to use your favorite technique on your creation. It can be anything you love. I chose to do a shaving cream back round for my card. This is definitely my all time favorite. I have always been a fan of making my own back rounds but time doesn't always allow for it and papers are so beautiful that I usually take the quicker way out. I had so much fun Saturday doing this technique I made dozens of them in all different colors so I will have them to use for a while.
I picked this one for my card because it reminded me of Fall leaves whipping in the wind with all the colors blending together as they fly through the air. This beautiful Autumn image I colored is from Karen Doodles, perfect for this time of year. Everyone of the ladies did a different technique this week and their creations are gorgeous so be sure to stop by their blogs to see what they did to inspire you.
Here are some other wonderful challenges that fit my card

Karen Doodles Challenge #35-This is a new challenge for me. Their challenge this week is to make a creation with the theme of "Give Thanks".

It was one of the very first things I learned when I started papercrafted many years ago. The second remember was a memory from the image, his mother had a wheelbarrow in the front of their house when I first started dating him 35+ years ago. Every Fall she would fill it with everything nature and it looked beautiful!
