PTI & MFT

Finally have my laptop back--not that they fixed it!  They gave me 3 different stories--so frustrating.  I can still use it & hopefully the battery will continue to charge.  Decided to try an original power cord instead of the universal & see if that solves my problem.  At least the part I bought wasn't expensive & who knows--may eventually need it.  Fritz is almost transitioned fully onto the new dog food & he's doing good.  Still not really wanting to play, but certainly more interested in his world.  The backyard squirrel is driving him crazy! 
Onto cards beginning with PTI CAWU.  This month I was inspired to case Lizzie's gorgeous autumn leaves card.  She gave me the perfect layout to use with the image from Autumn Adornments.  
I stamped in Versamark & embossed with 4 Zing! powders. Luckily, one of my rectangle dies was the right size for my window inside the dots done with PTI Mix & Mat Flourishes. Love the font of the sentiment from PTI Take Three: Fall.  It's stamped in VersaMagic Gingerbread, clear embossed & trimmed into a flag only attached on the left edge. They don't show much, but I did add 3 yellow Nuvo drops.  I'm also entering CCCB, Paru's Card Making Challenges, SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.

Next is my card for MFT Camp Create Day 1: Inlaid Made Easy.  Barbara's multi-inlaid scene is fabulous, but I went very simple & just inlaid the beautiful Leaf-Filled Flourish after inking it in PTI Aqua Mist & SSS Mint Candy.  
The panel was inked in HA Cornflower & spritzed heavily with Perfect Pearls. The sentiment from On the Line was stamped several times in the same ink.  Love being able to use the flower center from Prima Donna Petals for small blooms.  
I inked them with SSS Apricot, covered them in Stickles & added tiny blue gems.  These inks were the closest I could get to MFT Color Challenge 75. I'm also entering Country View Challenges, CropStop, DRU, SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.  Thanks for your patience as I catch up with all of you.  I truly appreciate your friendship.

  5. Wow! 2 beauties, Greta. One oh so fallish, and the other summery colors. Love both! Has your dog been ill? So hard to tell what to do sometimes. Going through a crisis with my cat. Think she's just getting old. Or maybe its too hot. Keeping an eye on her.

  8. Ahhh, I love fall and your card is the epitome of fall beauty! At first glance the card base looked like leather to me! Your second card is so sweet. Glad to hear Fritz has taken to his new food. Hope he continues to feel better. Give him a little pat on the head from me!!

  10. I'm really loving these sweet cards, Greta! The offset rectangle is awesome on your spectacular leaves card and I think the flow of your thank you card is excellent! The JUGS Shine challenge would have worked, too, but I think you're over the limit ~ next time! So glad to hear that Fritz is feeling Fritzky again and that you got your laptop back. So frustrating; hope it hangs in there for you! Hugs, Darnell

  11. The colors and especially the off-center rectangle on your fall card make it so stunning. Your second card's delicacy is sweet. Quite a contrast between the two.

  16. Hello Lovely... Great news about Fritz, I'm sure you must feel better too knowing he is on the mend. Shame about your Laptop... I do hope you can continue to work with it. Your cards are gorgeous... I love the shimmery autumn leaves (I love Autumn and all the colours) And I am a big fan of the inlaid die technique... It's gorgeous! Have a good day my friend!

  17. Oh Greta, I'm so happy for Fritz and hope he gets better each day. I'm sure he will be playing when he gets 100%. I also have hopes for the laptop too, to get back to 100%. That fall card is just gorgeous. I love the look of the leaves inside the window. I do like the inlaid card too and wish I was there. I wanted to throw clothes into a tote and come up and share the room with you at camp but this week is turning out to be really busy when I thought I had no plans! I even had my inlaid card in my mind but didn't get it made.

  19. I really like that autumn window card. What's up with Fritz?! I guess I have to read some more to find out. It is hard to transition pets from one food to the next.

    They are both beautiful, but being a lover of all things autumn I just adore the first one.
    Sending lots of hugs xx

  24. Two very different creations Greta, the blue one so soft and feminine but it's the rich Autumnal colours of the first that has to be my favourite.

  25. Wonderful news that Fritz is feeling better, even if it means being annoyed with the squirrel! Love the Autumn card with the vibrant embossing and the offset frame. The inlaid card is so soft and pretty. That's another technique that I shall give a try. Always so much to learn when I call in to say "G'day" :D
