Bountiful Blessings......

Good morning! I hope everyone had a fabulous week-end! I am enjoying my morning ~ not rushing around! I actually enjoy the occasionally weekday off. Nice to take it easy. Anyways here is my card I have made for a couple challenges. I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday and have used the color brown for the Stamp Something challenge. I don't have much on my card but they said if you color using it that is fine as well! I distressed the edges with my scissors and used Goldrush (CTMH) on the edges of the dp. Sentiment is from some Melissa Frances rub-ons. I have had them for years and between the Whiff of Joy Fall kit and the new ones from Belles and Whistles I am finally using them up! The placement is alittle off but my flowers were already in place and were pretty stuck. I punched some leaves and stamped a script on it in Olive (CTMH). Thanks to some tips from Aija's tutorial on Stampartic I was able to get my image colored pretty good! I am rather pleased with the result!

Don't forget that I still have a little halloween candy going on here. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!! I plan on getting some things done and maybe a trip to the roller rink if it rains! The girls are getting pretty good on there blades and it is a great way to release energy! haha


Paper ~ Bo Bunny and DCWV
Inks: distress inks and twinkling h2o's
Accessories: flowers ~ Prima, rub-ons ~ Melissa Frances, Pearls ~ MM

Hey Kathy! This is super adorable. I loooove the image. May need to look into it although it is getting a little late now. Totally fabulous the way you did the leaves and I see you use CTMH also! I loove their stuff, of course I used to be a demonstrator for them too so....
Sorry for the lack of blogging on my part, I was at a funeral. Very sad!

Hugs to you my friend! Dena
