Just a Note...

Hello! Happy Friday eve! Although school is off to a great start, I'm still looking forward to the weekend. I've got tons of DT work to get done, so I'll be a busy little crafty bee.

Another quick card to share today, this time using FTL56. I'm not quite ready to go all out with fall cards yet, but I figured some fall-ish colors would be good. I think I'll make a batch of these, just changing the colors and sentiments--the girls at work have been begging me to bring in some cards they can buy, and these will fit the bill quite nicely...

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for another Get Sketchy challenge. We have a great sponsor lined up, a fabulous guest designer, and plenty of eye candy to inspire you!

Stamps: Great Friend (SU), Everyday Sayings (Hero Arts)
Paper: Old Olive, Perfect Plum, PTI white
Ink: Old Olive, Perfect Plum
Accessories: Elegant Eggplant ribbon (SU), Cuttlebug Swiss Dots

DOn't think I'm silly or anything...but your card makes me feel at peace...It's simple and elegant and VERY chic! I need it blown up in my studio ;) That way when the kids start crawling all over me, and the dogs start barking, and the phone starts ringing...I can just look at it and sigh*

Ok...I'm not usually so dramatic ;)

A very clean cut card, which makes it versatile - even possible to use as a card for a man I'd say...
