Happy Fall! Here is a picture of my favorite tree in the backyard. I had to capture a photo of it this week while it is so beautiful. As soon as we have some heavy rains, all the leaves will fall down. There was a large tree next to it that had to be chopped down this summer--what a bummer! In the meantime, enjoy the beauty of this one.

This is one of my favorite stamps. It's Hero Arts Daisies. I find myself reaching for it often, especially when I'm in the mood to color. I find that the colors balance nicely when you use the same colors for the top and bottom flowers, and the same colors for the middle flowers, just varying the shading a bit.

Here is my card for the OWH blog hop this month. I used SU's Corner Garden stamp. It was designated in the catalog as a background stamp, but that seems to be a misnomer. It takes center stage on any card. I find it very relaxing to color this in, especially at times when I want to make cards, but don't want something that requires a lot of thought. This stamp is definitely a keeper.
This blog hop celebrates World Card Making Day.
I used all Copic markers on this card. I only have one set of the Blendabilities, and not really sure I'm going to buy any others. I don't see a lot of difference between the two different sets. At least the Copics can be refilled.

I used the Papertrey Ink Christmas tree and the Stampin Up embossing folder to create this card. Although the embossing folder covers the entire front of an A2 card, I cut a sliver off each of the four sides in order to mount it to the Garden Green cardstock.
