My Friend

I have had a busy few days with a smidgen of a stupid accident that left me with 6 stitches. :o)  So NOT good!  I am just fine, but am inconvenienced with a sore left thumb....so bow making will not be accomplished for a bit, hee~hee!

I made this card using
Inspiration Mosaic and clear embossed the leaves (from Autumn Leaves) using Versamark.  Afterwards the panel was brayered with an autumn colored spectrum pad.   A nice wow effect with little effort.  I am so looking forward to cooler temperatures and seeing the leaves change colors...fall is my favorite time of the year!

Well, before I go I have a sneak peek of the card I made for the Sketch Girls Challenge.  Leigh Ann came up with another great sketch that had me stretching my creativity.  I made this card twice..the first one didn't quite fit so I tried it again and came up with this one....which you will see in its entirety on the 31st! :o)

Have a wonderful day!!!

Sorry you have not seen me in a while, between a sick daughter, wicked bad allergies and a sinus cold I have not been in the posting mood.

The colous on this card are stunning and so is the design. It just begs to be picked up and studied!

Keep those fingers away from sharp things, girl!
