Welcome Fall

Fall is my favorite season of the year.  I love color and with the leaves changing colors, (two of the colors happen to be my favorite, Red and Yellow), I feel warm and cozy.   With a cup of hot chocolate, cider, or tea, and dressed in my comfortable clothing, I love to sit and stamp all day with a smile on my face.  I am grateful I am able to do what I love and share it with you.

Day of Gratitude card

This card is quick and simple. I sponged the background on whisper white card stock with the different colors of ink.  I then stamped the leaves and added an embellishment (ribbon and a cut out stamped acorn) and greeting that was die-cut.

Cards for Fall:

Welcome to my blog!

I love to stamp!

I have been a Stampin Up Demonstrator for the past 5 years and I love to share beautiful, fun, and creative cards to inspire my stampers at my in-home workshops.  I am excited to also share them with all of you out there in the blog-o-sphere, but I have to confess my stamping skills outdo my technological skills.  Blogging is new for me.  Thank you for sharing in this new techno-adventure with me!
