Fall Flowers

As we start to finish up our summer activities and start getting ready for preschool to start back up, my mind automatically starts looking forward to fall. I love fall. I don't love that winter soon follows but I love everything else about fall...the cool weather, visits to the pumpkin patch, the colorful leaves...everything.
I don't actually have very many fall themed stamps so I had to borrow some stamps from my friend Jen so I could work on some fall cards. This card was made using one of the stamp sets that I borrowed: FALL FLOWERS from Firecracker Designs by Pamela. I think this is probably my favorite stamp set from Firecracker Designs. The Black Eyed Susan flower stamp is just beautiful! Aren't these great fall colors!


Supplies used: Fall Flowers from Firecracker Designs, SU Print Pattern background, "Hello" from DRS Designs, SU Garden Green and Summer Sun CS, GP white CS, Bazzil Bling orange CS, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Prismacolor markers, Koh-i-noor colored pencils and OMS, Art Institute Black and Lion's Mane glitter, dimensionals, misc ribbon.

Even though I have fall on the brain, I've also been busy making some Christmas cards with the newly released DRS Designs stamps. I will be sharing these starting tomorrow. You won't want to miss them, the new images are terrific!
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day!
