Guest Designer for Theresa Momber

Autumn Beauty has been just a delight to design with this month and I thank Theresa Momber for featuring me as one of her designers. I still have so many ideas and just not enough hours in my day to create (which is a good thing in the sense that there is always something new to try!). I love the fall.... it is just my favorite season with the cooler temperatures and I love to see the leaves in all of their various fall colors floating with the wind to the ground...Just a beautiful time of year.  Sunflowers are another symbol of fall which I love seeing this time of year and I wanted to feature those in today's post.  The large sunflower I colored with Copics and added some Autumn Flower Soft to the center of the flower. Just love the "zing" it gives to the card, kind of takes it up a notch!

The next thing I have to share is a set of 3x3 cards that I made using another one of the sunflowers. It is nice to have little cards on hand to include with a little gift or baked good.   My daughter takes piano lessons and I so appreciate the time and effort her teacher puts into teaching her. I am going to include one of these little notes with some fall shaped Sugar Cookies I make this week.
For these cards, I used my Labels 4 Nesties and used one of the smaller dies that would fit nicely on the front of a 3x3 card. I stamped the Green Apple base with the sentiment Give Thanks numerous times for a quick background to peek around the die. Just a bit of coloring and sponging and done. :o) I also stamped the envelope with the corner vine stamp and it adds the perfect accent.

It has been a huge blessing working with Theresa and her newest stamp set Autumn Beauty. I just know her next set will blow me away and looking forward to what she has in the future.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I truly appreciate your time and sweet encouraging comments that you leave. Have a wonderful day!
