ADFD New Release and "Texture" Challenge


Happy last day of September!  Where did the year go?  It is a blustery, rainy, cold Autumn day here in Michigan.  I have the honor and pleasure of sharing with you the new release image from ADFD which is titled "Fall Cuties" and once you see them you will know why.  Today also kicks off our "Gimmie Some Texture" challenge and you don't want to miss out playing along.

Image:  ADFD "Cloud Watching"
Sentiment:  ME!
DP:  Digital paper from Jessica Sprague
Ink:  Copics
Diecuts:  Spellbinders Square, rectangle and circle
Embellishments: White fluff and Cuttlebug "Dots" embossing folder

Since this week's challenge is all about texture, I added some fluff to the clouds and embossed a layer of cardstock.  I love this image a lot, because me and my sisters use to layout in the field across from our house and say what the clouds look like. *gigl*  Now as adult I imagine that you could place all your cares on a cloud and they will sail right bye you.  Maybe it is like an assembly line.  You place them there and God picks them off and takes care of them for you. lol  Okay, there I go again.  Anyway, this set has some adorable images in them and you will have a BLAST coloring them up.

You can pick this set or image up at the ADFD store.  Make sure that once you get your image, color it up, add texture and submit it in our ADFD challenge.  If you ever want to know what we are up to at ADFD, then you can find us on PCP, CDAC, The Crafter's Cafe, and FB.  We would love to have you come over and chat with us.

I have entered this card in the The Paper Players sketch challenge.

Now get to creating...

Remember:  There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!


  1. Oh Candy, this is super cute! What fun clouds and the image plus sentiment is just darling :>)

  2. Candy, This is my first visit to your blog and I LOVE IT! Your blog design is wonderful - I can't help but smile! Ok now your card. I love this image, it brings to mind so many happy memories as a child and also with my children looking at clouds and figuring out what animals or things they look like. Your coloring is so professional and I just love all the dimension. SO glad you joined us at The Paper Players this week!

  3. Adorable! There is so much depth and dimension! I love the image and your original sentiment. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players this week!

  4. What a great card! Oh to be one of those two kiddos, just laying around watching the clouds go by. The panel papers are the perfect complement. Thanks so much for sharing with the Paper Players this week!


Thank you so much for your sugar sweet comments! :-)
