Dessert First! and Nice Matters.

It really feels like Fall here now. It has been cool for the last few weeks. I noticed some of the ivy leaves on my arbor are starting to turn red...hey seems like I talk about the weather alot doesn't it?

I've noticed many bloggers are already making Christmas cards....and they are all so Beautiful!! I'm hoping to start on some of my own soon. I like Halloween and love Halloween stamps but am never sure who to make Halloween cards for. Maybe I'll try making halloween Atc's.

Today I have a card that I made for my Son In Law....he's a pretty neat fella, with a great sense of humour .... and loves his dessert. Now I only have to hope the mail will get it to him on time.

I used the SC136 sketch for this card....it was a very neat sketch. You can find this sketch here

Stamps - SU(Riveting, Fresh Fillers, Amazing to Zany), Karen Foster Snap Stamps and Stampendous.

Ink - SU (classic black, creamy caramel and close to cocoa), Chalk ink aquamarine.

Paper - Colormates coffee brown, DCWV, Sizzix little stack, SU ivory.

Accessories - may arts ribbon, brads, eyelets, glossy accents on balloon, stitching, tab punch and circle punch.

Image is colored with Prismacolor pencils (oderless mineral spirits) and Twinkling H20's.
