Autumn Greetings!

We've sorta been in the summer/fall transition at our house for a few weeks, but I'm still amazed at how fast the summer flew by! Summer was lots of fun and full of playdates and trips to the zoo but I'm glad to be back into more of a routine schedule now. Fall is actually one of my favorite times of the year. I love all of the rich earthy colors and the cool weather. DRS Designs has a lot of really great Fall/Thanksgiving themed stamps! Even if you don't typically send Thanksgiving cards, all of these stamps would work great for fall birthdays or for those "just because" kind of cards.
If you like to color, the Thanksgiving/Harvest section of their catalog will be a dream come true for you, check it out HERE. They have so many beautiful fall stamps just waiting for you to color!

Here is one of the fall cards I made using stamps from the Thanksgiving/Harvest section of their catalog. I'm disappointed in the photo quality of this card because it is WAY prettier in real life, IMO. I took TONS of pictures and I just couldn't get a shot that showed how pretty this card really is. After about 30 tries I decided this was the best that I could get. The main image is colored with Prismacolor markers and highlighted with Koh-i-noor colored pencils. I then painted the entire image with coordinating colors of Shimmerz paint (you can't tell this at all by the picture).

Supplies used: Stamps from DRS Designs, SU CS, Bazzill Bling CS, SU wide grogain ribbon, Prismacolor markers, Koh-i-noor colored pencils/OMS, Shimmerz paint, Michael's self adhesive rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by! We have Annabelle's birthday party this afternoon so I have tons of last minute errands to get done...cake...balloons...etc, etc. Wish me luck!
