a season of Blessings 36

Mona Pendleton | Friday, September 23, 2011 @ 8:35 AM | , ,

 Happy Fall to all who are currently observing the Fall Equinox! It's hard to believe today is the first day of Fall when the temps are still in the 100's here in my neck of the woods! Connor & Meri's Fall Break begins today when the school bell rings at 2:30 pm! We will be heading out of town for a mini vacation at our Home away from Home :)
With Autumn on my mind, I made this card using one of my very first PTI stamp sets: Fall Elegance. I love the whimsical ~ elegant foliage in this stamp set as well as the polka dot label from Mat Stack 4. I finished off this card with a pretty purple bow and die cut Maple Leaf that was made using a die template from Spellbinders Nested Maple Leaves:
Thanks so much for visiting today ~ hope you are enjoying the first day of Fall :) Be Sweet!

Supplies:
Stamps: PTI Fall Elegance, Mat Stack 4
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders Nested Maple Leaves, PTI Mat Stack 4, Sizzix Vagabond
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye

Sue Ann said...

Another FABBY week on your blog Mona. I totally love the pink flower with the different texture!! This card is so warm and welcoming to fall, LOVE THE COLORS and I also realize looking at this that I do not have to stitch every seam on a card ....... when I start sewing on a card there is no edge undone ..... but I do love the look on this card especially with the dark tread ..... YOU KNOW I LOVE THAT LOOK!!! The card for the publication is great and I do love that tea cup ....... I might have to look at that set and sell my Tea for Two ....... I love that tea cup and the "You are my cup of Tea" Tons of inspiration as always and I hope you guys have a great weekend!!!
