Hello!

Hi, all! Happy Tuesday! I'm still recovering from a wicked cold, and now I've almost lost my voice. Teaching should be fun tomorrow, right?

On a happier note, I came home today to find a box of new SU goodies waiting for me! I fell in love with the Autumn Meadows paper in the mini-catalog, so that was the first thing I tore open. The paper has a distressed look, so I added to it by roughing up the edges a little. I added a flower, brad, and sentiment to finish it off. Easy peasy!

Stamps: Birds, Trees, & Messages (Hero Arts)
Paper: More Mustard textured, Very Vanilla, SU dp

Ink: Chocolate Chip

Accessories: flower (Prima), brad (Imaginisce), distressing tool, dimensionals

New crafting goodies are always great for inspiration. I use to be like that as a student. New pencils or pens, paper always gave me the encouragement to study.

Love the colours of that dp. The teal flower is such a nice touch.

Hope your voice comes back soon.
