Back again

    I'm back again, Can't believe it's been a month again. Where do the days go. Have had a busy fall-grandsons football, garden producing some yummy veggies to take care of, and company. Seems the whole month of Sept. has been go, go, go........ Hope it slows down some now. We have finally had a week of 'summer' weather here. It has been nicer this week than it was all summer, and the leaves are just hitting their peak. Beautiful days..........

    This card today uses an old Stampin' Up set called 'Thankful Thoughts'. I love this pumpkin patchwork image.
    I stamped the image with Momento Tuxedo Black on SU Whisper White cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. I used a copper shimmer pen to add a bit of sparkle to the images (but it doesn't show up well on the pic-darn it!). Trust me, it's there! I stamped the sentiment from the set with MTB also. 
    I cut the panel out with Spellbinders Distressed Edges A2 die and mounted on a base of SU Always Artichoke cardstock. I added 3 little copper squares (Mark Richardson Mosaics) to finish it off. 
      I will enter this in the Shabby Tea Room Challenge #236-Autumn Bliss use the image as inspiration and include a pumpkin; The House that Stamps Built Designers Choice Challenge- Fall; and the Operation Write Home Midmonth Throwdown- Fall Colors.

Hope you are having a good weekend and enjoying some nice fall weather. Take time to watch the leaves change!!!! They are so vibrant-can't help but feel cheerful. I love to have you comment on my work.
