The Beary Scrap's Photo Inspiration

Click HERE for the Inking Pink Hop
Thank you ladies I have over 100 new followers
Thank you so much!!

I don't know where you live but the leaves are falling down like crazy where I live and they are falling down on my card this week to.
We had a photo Inspiration this week and this is the card I made.
Now during the hop I went over and visited Debbie's Blog after she left a comment and saw her post there for this sweet little girl named Madison and a request for cards. I had to make a card for tonight and made my card work to send to her. Here is what her blog says:

After working for my parents business for 10 years, you get to know your customers pretty well and over time they become more like friends. One of the customers had told me last year that he was thrilled that his niece, Madison, was in remission from Leukemia! Their family was over joyed that such a young girl had beat this vicious cancer (she's only 6 years old). However, just last week, their family was just hit with the most horrific news........Madison's cancer has returned.

I just had to make a card. If you have some free time head on over to Debbie's blog and send this sweet little 6 year old girl a card.

Now here is the picture that was our inspiration.
I pulled out the fall theme and the colors from the picture for my card.
I used paper from Memory Box and Basic Grey. I used Peach Delight Glimmer Mist on the background paper. I used one the the very cute Acrylic Paper Piecing Patterns for Tear Bears from The Beary Scrap Store. I made my cute little beary with Mulberry Paper. I also cute my tree out with Tim Holtz's Branch Tree Die. I added a bunch of punched out maples leaves from cardstock with a punch from EK Success. I added Cinnamon Stickles to the edges of my card. After my card was done I added Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist to the whole card including the Tear Bear and looks so pretty.

Don't forget there is still time to enter our
Beary Sweet Challenge-Misting You have till Oct 31 to enter.

Trick or Treat for Glimmer Mist

Is everyone getting ready for Halloween?
It's almost time for the Trick or Treaters to come around.
Well not my house I wish! I live out in the middle of nowhere.
But this little guy is all ready to go get some candy.
Now you can kinda see my Glimmer Mist, I added it to the Little Yellow Bicycle designer paper from the Frightful Colletion. I also added it to the black card stock. I have the cute little Skeleton Peter from Simply Betty Stampsthat I colored with Copics. I inked the edges of my Spellbinder die cut out with Colorbox Ink. I added some flowers that I also added Glimmer Mist to but I added a lot to try to make it really shine but I think I added to much because now you really can't see the shine. I added a pumpkin brad from my stash. I also have black brads in the corners. I used stickers from Jolees and Recollections.

I spooked my House

Over the weekend me and my youngest son decided to spook out the yard. I usually have a lot more but it seems the mice decided that I have to much stuff and ate some of it and I had to throw it away. I also have blow up people for the yard but we have been having so much wind here lately that I decided not to put them up because they probably wouldn't be able to be up much. So for something different I place them all in my flower gardens.
