FTTC86 Home Tweet Home and more!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Did you all have a nice weekend??? Ours didn't turn out as quiet as I was hoping....our oldest daughter Sarah came down with the flu and had a very hard time breathing. I took her to the new Urgent Care Center here in town and they ended up giving her some cortisone pills and an inhaler so she can breath again. We had to rule out pneumonia and thank goodness she didn't have it. I totally forgot what a *BIG* baby she is when she is sick...LOL...thank goodness she doesn't get sick much!!! The medication and inhaler are working and she is on her way to recovery....yeah!!!

Afterall I did get a chance to make a card for this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC86. Matter of fact it's the end of the month again and that means we are having a Guest Designer. Please help us welcome Debbie Marcinkiewicz!!!! Debbie is challenging us create a card, project or gift set with a *fall/harvest* theme using these colors ~ Green, Brown, Orange/Russet, and Cream!!! Hope you have time to join us this week???

Here is my idea.....



I used one of my all time favorites Set ~ Home Tweet Home. All the required colors work perfectly with this Set :) !!! My cardbase is Classic Ivory. The images were inked in Memento Rich Cocoa and color with
these Copic Markers ~ YR07, YR01, E27, E00, YG91, YG67, G24, G0000 and Colorless Blender.  I added some *corrugated cardboard* in the BG and inked it up with the same Memento Rich Cocoa Ink. The awesome Mashed Ribbon was a great find up in Atlanta!!! My little birdhouse was tied down with some Brown Scrapper's Floss!!!  At last I added some piercing around the edges, the sentiment and the pearls.

Now it's time to check out the rest of the team ~  Barbara, Betty, Cindy, DeeMaki and Debbie!!!

Remember you DO NOT have to use Flourishes images to play along...just get inky and play along!!!!

My card was also created for these challenges in mind:

4 Crafty Chicks ~ Celebrate Fall
Paper Sundaes #37 ~  Things with Wings
Meljens Designs #26 ~ Autumn Colors
Create for Card ~ Make a card with leaves
Spectacular Sunday Challenge #78 ~ Season Chance
Crafty Creations #86 ~ Fall Colors
ODBDSLC31 ~ Wing It
Flutter By Wednesday ~ All Winged Things

Have a wonderful day and I'll be back with my last Color Throwdown card tomorrow!!! Hugs ~S~

Oh my girl!! When will I ever learn from you to take out my SU paper piercer thingy...especially after looking at so many of your gorgeous cards using that tool? I love the colors you chose and one thing is for sure that you have taught me...the more white you use the more elegant!!

Glad to hear Sarah is feeling better. Never fun to have a sick child, and especially those who are not good sick patients (have a son and a hubby like that LOL!)

Darling card and I just love the twine to fold up the birdhouse.
