Come to Me Autumn....... plus a hugey huge announcement!

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice, of course! ;)

What a truly glorious day! God is in His majesty, of that I am most certain! of course He would be even if it were pouring down rain, but the sun is shining, the birds are singing, the colors of Autumn surround me with so much beauty as I gaze out my windows...... there is so much to be thankful for! :)

I want to share a card with you that I hope reflects just a bit of what I feel as I see the colors of this most awe-inspiring season. and with it I get to make a humbling announcement as well. I have been asked to join the ranks of some of stamping's most talented EVER ladies by joining the DT of Shady Tree Studios! Honored doesn't even begin to express the way I feel!

I used the stamp set, 'Come to Me Autumn', with the image stamped directly onto my patterned paper. For this special card, out came the much hoarded Daisy D's! ;) I intentionally gave the image a muted feel, lightly adding color with my SU! inks and water color brushes rather than going bold with markers. The tag, polka dot ribbon, and glitter leaf are from Making Memories. The lace and buttons are from my vintage stash. The card base was edged in saffron craft ink. of course I had to get some distresing in there! ;) The little bit of twine is actually a bit of a tea tag that soaked while I was making tea one day! repurpose repurpose! The tag is popped up on foam tape for more dimension.

Please do check out the Shady Tree blog, store, PCP group, and of course the DT members' blogs for TONS more inspiration! Nancy has sneaky peeks starting today for next week's big release, so you for certain don't want to miss any bit of that! :)
