Autumn Window

     Welcome to September!  Where on earth has this year gone?  How can we already be 9 months into the year?  Yikes, do you realize that means the holidays are right around the corner?   I don't even want to talk about it.

     However, a new month means a new challenge over at Crafts Galore Encore ("Anything Goes" theme) and we're being sponsored by Beccy's Place!  I've been a fan of Beccy's artwork for ages and am so happy to be using an image that she generously provided.  This is called "Autumn Window" and I decided it would make a perfect Thanksgiving card.


     I colored the image with my ProMarkers, cut it into a large square with my paper cutter, and added the gingham ribbon to the top of it.  I added it to the front of a yellow card base and then hand cut the sentiment piece, matting it with yellow CS.  I used one of my bowtie bows and called it finished.  I love the CAS design and it will be easily mailed.

     Come play with us at Crafts Galore Encore this month.  How can you miss with an "Anything Goes" theme?   Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Hello, teamie Connie! Lovely, rich Autumn colors in your masterpiece! I really love the stone work colors - all that shading by hand, and the gorgeous shading in your windows. It's a wonderful card, Connie! Happy September to you, too! xo

Really pretty Nana Connie. Our temperatures have dropped here (at least the humidity) so the evenings are starting to feel like fall. Your card made me smile. I love the fall. Thanks for the inspiration!
