Hello, Fall!

Happy Saturday! Hope your weekend is off to a good start. My day includes a rare Saturday afternoon football game, then coming home to a Crock-Pot meal, mmm...

Today's card is a two-fer, using FTL60 and the My Time color challenge. These colors were perfect for a simple fall card.


I'm still battling this nasty cold...On Thursday I actually had to stop teaching about ten minutes before school ended because my voice simply wouldn't work anymore. So I made the executive decision to stay home yesterday and let my voice rest. Still can't shake my cough, and I feel like my ears are starting to clog...say a prayer I'm better soon!

Stamps: Fall Season (Inkadinkado), Everyday Sayings (Hero Arts)

Paper: Old Olive, Really Rust, Very Vanilla

Ink: Really Rust, Chocolate Chip

Accessories: corner rounder punch, pearls (Kaisercraft), ribbon (Offray)

Ann, I had that tree stamp IN MY HAND yesterday and put it back. Yep. Because I've totally forgotten all about my resolution not to buy new stamps until I have used all the ones I have at least once. I have been BAD this month. Really BAD. And now, I feel really bad about putting that one back because, woman, you make that stamp ROCK!

Oh, Ann! If only I could convey to you how impressive and DIFFICULT a sweet little card like this would be for me to make! I LOVE THIS! The elegance and sheer beauty of this stamp: so expertly shown off in this breathtaking composition! Now you have me itching to try these colors! Magnificent work, doll! I'm holding you in thoughts of wellness ~ Crock Pot cooking is an excellent step! BTW! Fell better, sweet one!

Loving the fall colours, even though I'm still not a Fall person :) The tree image is perfect!! Too bad about your voice, but yeah, you can't teach without it. Plus it's exhausting talking without a voice! Feel better!! I hear chocolate is good for a sore throat (wink, wink, lol)
