Bring on Fall!



screen-shot-2016-08-12-at-6-25-13-pmHello Friends,  Don’t know about you, but I am ready for some cooler temps!  The heat is intense and I don’t ever remember it bothering me as much as it is has this year.  So I am hoping today’s Inspiration Photo over at Just Us Girls will help persuade fall to show it’s face in Florida.  Wishful thinking I know, but a girl has gotta try.  This card was put together with a little bit of stamps from here and there.  The pumpkin is something I picked up at Michaels, the little leaves and sentiment are from MFT (a PI set called Thankful Friend), and the large leaves are from Altenew’s Beautiful Day set.  Of course I had to use my favorite MFT stitched rectangles too!

I would also like to say thank you to Kathy Schweinfurth for being such an awesome Guest Designer with us this month!  You are truly very talented Kathy and hope to see more of your work in our gallery soon.

ModSquadLogoI am also linking my card up to the Mod Squad challenge where they have asked us to use splats (big or little) on our project.  I love doing the splatter technique…it adds so much to a card with so little effort!

Hope you will consider joining us at JUGS this week.  Take care,  Nanc’
