The new computer is spectacular!  So fast and hopefully much better than the last one.  I have been busy making some cards for a friend,  Lots of Christmas cards which I plan to show you in December. We leave tomorrow for Ca. for Thanksgiving and then to Nevada and Tucson on the way back,  Not exactly back, round about!  This was one of my shoe box cards.  This die is one of my favorites.

My computer would not stay on so I couldn't post.  Joe ordered a new one for me so I'm not going to post for a few days.

Liz made this beautiful card for our swap.  I truly love this die. I don't think I have ever used this color combo.  It is soft and very pretty

This is one of the dies in the Tim Holtz  Mixed Media 2 set. which is new to me.   I bought it because of this swirl but had a hard time with it because it is so big.  I tried inking it and that makes a very suttle background.  I'll have to play with that this week.

I was playing with alcohol inks yesterday.  I put 5 colors on a felt applicator and then added  blending fluid and pounced it onto a coated card stock.  I thought it was too intense so I then pounced on just the blending fluid which toned it down a lot.  It was fun and every one came out differently.  Here's the results of one of them.

This is a really pretty card that I received in a swap.  I believe it was done by Liz.  the paper is an "In" color of Stampin Up but it is a close match to the Twisted Citron new oxide ink color.

This is the last of the shoe box cards we did for October.  This is another flower stamp in the Tim Holtz set that Pam brought for us.   We stamped it twice and then colored it with water color pencils and moved the color around with a water brush.
