House of Cards October Challenge Texture




Fall has definitely arrived in my neighborhood. It is grey, windy and cold. I think we will be able to go with out the AC tonight!

This month at House of Cards we have a duel challenge:


You can use these colors but we want you to add some texture to your creations! I recently treated myself to a webcam to make videos. Today is my first video! Bare with me please it is my first and I am still learning. 

Today's card features the colors and texture. 


If you watched the video, you will see all the textures I talked about. This card kinda reminds me of the book "Pat the Bunny". You just want to touch it and feel it.


AAA cards is having a a challenge that fits my card,so I had to play along: wordplay.



I hope you enjoyed my first video, hopefully they will improve. Hope to see you all over at the House of Cards for this month's color/texture challenge!
