Windy Autumn

     I happen to love windy autumn days.  They tell me that the oppressive heat of summer is finally gone and the smell of fall comes across on the breeze.  So, you'll find me thankful even on windy days.  :-D  This sweet image from Lacy Sunshine really works for their theme of "Changes in Weather."

 

The sketch and colors came from Poppy Sketch.


     I colored the image using ProMarkers and added the sentiment.  The ribbon and the rick rack are both from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I've been hoarding them in my stash for nearly a year. I don't know why I thought they just couldn't be used.  :-D  Flowers from Wild Orchid.  Pretty CAS, huh?

     Challenges:

     Short and sweet post today but I'm out the door for a couple of meetings and lunch.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
