happy tuesday! another fun crafting day:)  If you've been here before then you know for the month of october melissa chose me to be a guest designer at TMS. it has been so much fun! be sure to pop on over and see what her and the DT ladies have created for you to enjoy . Melissa  creates these awesome sketches that are really great to play along with. this one being my favorite. i love putting  different papers together  and it being my fave time of year.. i got to add so many pretty rich colored papers together with this. so thank you melissa times 2 :)
for this i used ...
what!!!! no cricut!!!
i know i know  your shocked beyond belief arent ya! 
 my other favorite gizmo is my cuttlebug  i actually use it quite often.. i make several cards a day i just dont post them all but at least 2 out of the several are all c/bug. so... i used the leaf cut and emboss die/folder..isnt it just such a lovely leaf. i cut it out onto cream colored cardstock  then just added some colorbox fluid chalk in several colors..i dont pay attention to which ones most of the time.. i just see what i like at the moment and swipe the color on wherever.. if i dont like the result i just add another color or 2 or 3.. until it looks at least sort of ok. if not.. oh well thats the way it goes in nature why not on my card too :)
i added a few buttons and some basic grey opaline pearls ( i so love these little gems) and hand wrote one of a kind (too lazy to mess with computer sizing the font)  the paper is recollections . thanks so much for looking and if ya read my babbeling thanks for that too.. somedays i just dont know how to shut up :)   big hugs to ya and hope you have a crafty~riffic day!   shelly

WooHoo I'm first! There's something to be said for insomnia. LOL Love your card Shelly! The colors are gorgeous, and isn't it fun sometimes to crank out a card with the Cuttlebug alone sometimes?

I couldn't live without my Cuttlebug! You did such an awesome job on this card and the colors are fabulous! I love how you did the leaf - thanks for the tips.
