The Eclipse was Awesome!

We had clear blue skies--perfect for viewing the total solar eclipse!  It was truly an amazing experience!  
It's great that MFT gives everyone lots of time to enter Camp Create.  I have 4 more cards done, but I'll just show you 2 of them today.  First is one I made for Day 3: Background Bonanza & I happened to use an ombre color scheme, so I'll also add it to Bonfire Bonus: Awesome Ombre.
I used DI candied apple, abandoned coral & fossilized amber with MFT Concentric Circle stencil.  Then I cut out the sentiment using MFT High Rise Lower Case Alphabet.  The bird die cut is from MFT Contempo Cage. I'm also entering CropStop.
Next is my card for Day 5: Delightful Diecutting.  I don't have candle dies, but I loved how Stephanie used them.  I did basically the same idea with MFT Primitive Pumpkins dies & stamps.
I used DI carved pumpkin & added WOS to the pumpkins. The sentiment strip is popped up with foam tape.
I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  5. That is a great picture of the eclipse and you. I followed it across the country on tv. Did Fritz have any reaction to it? It clouded up a lot here but not darkness. Molly slept through the whole thing. I love both cards today. The circle is so pretty and the pumpkins are sparkly and fun and a cute design.

  10. Oh I'm so happy you had a good view.
    Unfortunately, we had an overcast sky right as the eclipse began! (of course the sky was bright blue again later in the afternoon)
    I love your card my Friend!
    You always do wonders with inks!
    Hugs~

  13. You captured a wonderful shot of the eclipse - how exciting. The first card reminds me of a glorious sunrise with that little bird greeting the day and the sponging behind the pumpkins is beautiful. TFS
