Happy Fall Ya'll!

Well, it's not quite Fall in Arizona yet.  Here in the Valley of the Sun....we still have tripple digit temps!  Plus, some monsoon storms are rolling in which means it's not gonna just be a 'dry heat'!  But with school in full swing and the fall craft projects's as close to feeling like Fall as I can get!  

I was really happy to create my first Fall card of the season with Close to my Heart's September Stamp of the Month - Fall Favorites.  This was the PERFECT stamp set to grab all those new fabulous Alcohol Markers and give 'em a try!  I started small with the little pumpkin pair, but I look forward to being a coloring and blending queen soon with some more practice!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

It's been a busy, busy few weeks here at my house hold!  One kid started college, one kid started high school...then there's the 9 year old boy who just keeps me busy all the time!  So there hasn't been much time for sharing.  Oh, don't get me wrong....lots of creatin' has been going on around here and come back often cause I will eventually be sharing!  But in the stamping world, I have been in Christmas mode for the past few weeks and I certianly don't want to be like most of those stores where I am a postin' Christmas stuff before we even get to Halloween!!  But for today, I do have a card I wanted to share...

I needed to create a wedding card for some friends who were just recently married.  As you can see, there's a bit of 'old' and mostly 'new' which I used to create this card...I just skipped the 'borrowed' and 'blue' today. :)
