Dreaming of Fall

Hi Everyone,

I do hope your weekend has been enjoyable. Ours was busy and the weather was very hot and very humid! I'm dreaming of Fall - I've shared how much I enjoy the sunny, but slightly cool days and the crisp nights that are only good for two things... flannel pajamas and a good book!

I have a card to share with you that I hope you enjoy and conveys just how much I love the quick approaching season...

This card is for the Sept 15 challenge for the Card Traders group I belong to. The Challenge: Chalkboard Techniqe. You start with dark cardstock, stamp a solid image with white craft ink and then color with chalks and Q-Tips or sponge daubers. I used an ordinary pencil eraser to clean up chalk that I didn't want on the card. Then I cut a piece of Creamy Caramel cardstock, ran it through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder. Then using a scrap of (retired) Apple Cider paper and the Word Window punch I created the next layer and a place to tie ribbon. Then using the smallest Nestibilities rectangle scallop die and 1 x 3/4 inch piece of Very Vanilla and "Happy Fall" from PTI's Limitless Labels set, I created the small sentiment pop-up.
I recently (as in about 2 hours ago) applied for a position on the The Purple Onion Designs design team. I didn't supply any specific designs, I just invited them to visit my blog to view my work. So if you are here and reading this, please page through my entries. And for my friends... I hope you like another one of my designs and will cross your fingers for me.
