Before we succumb to the marketing pressure and start talking about cooler weather, shorter days, the crunch of leaves beneath our feet (and the subsequent raking), let's
Say it in Flowers!
Our theme this week is asking you to create with a focus on Flowers! Intepret this as you will, we love to see your creativity!
Jana's just coming off of the fun of a Disney trip, so I'm going to let her add her submittal in her own time. She's entitled, although I missed her very very much while she was gone and need to have long chat to catch up on our usual talk time!
Edited: Jana is in the house. Woot woot. I was able to drag myself out of bed and get right to work. Unfortunately, I got sidetracked, so I am very late posting. I managed to make this card. I put a bit more of an explanation on my blog: icardwanna, so you can read the long version there. I love fall and I love flowers, so mine sorta combines them. This is one of six. I made a set of them. I used the September 08 Sheetload of Cards recipe. I just found the site and am in LURVE.

So, who gave us 5 last week in our challenge - Gimme 5?
Well, here's Melisa, one of our newest Opus-Gluei participants and she's made a great journal page of the 5 things she loves and who doesn't immediately smile at the expression on the Boston Terrier's face!?! So clever, colorful, and a great interpretation!
Here's Electra's submittal - five great ATCs. You can't help but smile at these! So fun and clever! Love that you are participating on our blog.
and here's a beautiful altered book project for Gimme 5 from our greenhorn, Kathy, and it is great! All kinds of new techniques she used for it and at least one page has five embellishments, a very cool gypsy journal. We've missed her playing along in our challenges and are delighted that she is back!
Oh my gosh, you have to go over to Gini's blog to read her entire entry and see some more of her gorgeous ATCs and you will have a laugh as well! She's great and look at how cool her ATCs came out!
If you have a project for a previous challenge, including "Gimme 5," we want to share it! So, just link in the comments and we'll be sure to include it in the roundup of submittals! Because I'm thinking that there are some of you who just haven't had a chance to get things caught up with the whirl of end of summer, school starting, etc. So, don't be shy - send us your links and we'll give you the credit you deserve!
So, don't forget, the theme this week is Say it In Flowers!
