Hi everyone! Yay, we’ve made it to Wednesday, and it’s the first of October! That means I can put up my Halloween decorations! I know everyone else has probably already put theirs up, but my “rule” is that I don’t start until my calendar page has turned to October!
And speaking of October, Try Stampin’ on Tuesday has a nice sketch this week, and the theme is Harvest Time. I hadn’t done any watercoloring for a while, so I pulled out a retired set called Harvest Home, my Stazon ink and some watercolor paper and went to work! Here’s the sketch:
And here’s my card:
The Kraft Journal’s Make it Monday challenge was buttons and bows….I immediately wanted to go in the shabby seam binding/sewing direction, but I thought some twine bows would look good with this rustic image, so I added some faux buttons for better mailing capability!!!:
I added a black mat and some retired fall DSP, then finished it with the “gratitude” sentiment from Project Life’s Holiday Cheer. Stamping it on the a scrap of watercolor paper didn’t give me the solid look I was trying to achieve, so I stamped it on a scrap of Very Vanilla….worked great! Thanks for visiting today!
A busy day of playing proved to be just a wee bit too much for one little girl:
After insisting she did NOT want to take a nap, she decided to watch Cinderella….and that was all she wrote, LOL!
Enjoy your day!
