Celebrate Fall

So, it is football time now and that means I head to my craft room.  My hubby was watching the Iowa State game which doesn't interest me in the least.  I am so happy to have a hobby that I can go do while he enjoys the games.  I am sure he likes it too...I am not standing in the way or talking too much.


I am thinking by now you can tell I have a horrible addiction to the new My Minds Eye papers.  I found 4 of the 6x6 packs at Hobby Lobby, but only bought 3 of them (Union Square, Market Street, and Portobello Road).  These are last years lines, but they just made them in 6x6 packs to my knowledge.  I was shocked to see they also had a lot of the new SB dies too.  


I used the new sketch at Card Patterns.  I love making horizontal cards and this is a great sketch for that.  You can see that I used the ribbon and bow instead of flowers to the right of the circle.  That just wasn't going to work for me and the image I wanted to use.  For some reason I see the sketch isn't up on the blog yet.  I found it on Silke's blog who is guest designing for them this week.

Cardstock: PTI/Rustic Cream (base) and Kraft(mat)
DP: My Minds Eye/Lost and Found (Breeze, Sunshine)

Oh WOW! How did I ever miss this one? It is GORGEOUS! Love the warmth of the dp's and ribbon and you've colored the stamp beautifully. Great job with the piercing, too. My Hobby Lobby is almost always running low on dp. Maybe I'll give it another shot this weekend. ~Hugs!
