Missing You

     This lovely image is from The East Wind and I just loved coloring her!  She was perfect for autumn colors and leaves.


     I colored her with my ProMarkers, then used a die from Spellbinders to cut her out.  I cut yellow CS with that same die and used the little leaves that fell out of the frame to insert into the white frame of the image piece.  I adhered a scrap of fall leaves dp to the card front, then layered on the image and the yellow leaves.

     I used a leaf die (Die-namites) to cut both yellow and brown CS, and added those leaves.  The die makes a strip of leaves so I had to cut them apart to use them the way I did.  Final touch was the burlap bow which has been 'dyed' with a Buttercup Yellow ProMarker.

     I really hope fall is going to arrive soon.  Yesterday, in the last week of September, we hit 101 degrees!  That's more than 50 days we had over-100-degree temperatures during the three summer months (nearly 20 more than is usual for us and I hate every one of them!) and now 2 more days over 100 even though it's officially fall.  I'm tired of the heat.  I want cool days, crisp nights, and no thoughts of hot days for at least another 8 months.  Is that too much to ask?  lol  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

A Stunning card Connie, love the leaves in the die and the die leaves, coloured beautifully.

We are never happy about the weather are we? I am sitting here, ready to put the heating on and seeing it pour with rain, as it has for the last 2 days, we can hardly see across the road because of the low cloud UGH! The other side of the country is basking in sunshine!
