A Fall Card

Whew! Halloween is over and I didn't eat even one piece of candy. Can you believe it? I don't know if I have mentioned it, but I am trying to lose weight, so no candy for me. Dagnab it! Now, two more big eating holidays to get through and I can breathe a sigh of relief, lol.

Now on to todays post. I love fall in Florida. It's hot, muggy, and humid, and green. I know I've said this before, but geez, could we have some cool weather please? The air conditioner is about to explode from overworking, and I am personally keeping the electric company afloat.

I decided, while I was working on my last swap for this month, that I would stop and
make a fall card. I mean, I already was working with these colors and stamps, so why
not? Here you go:

What do you think? I should have used my brayer instead of sponging the sky, but IT
is the one thing that I own that isn't on my desk at the moment, so sponging it was. I used the Shimmer Paint on the bird, just mixed it with some reinker and painted it on him to give him some shimmer. Love this stuff! Get you some!
Oh, and if you are in the HSM group, this is sort of the journaling block you will be
getting from me this month, teehee.

Stamp sets-Autumn Days and Sweet Little Sentiments.
Cardstock-Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Ruby Red, and More Mustard.
Inks-More Mustard, Ruby Red, Soft Suede, Always Artichoke and Stampin' Up's new Champagne Mist.
Other-Modern Label and Word Window punches, Ruby Red Brads and More Mustard grosgrain ribbon.

Well, today is Monday, and I hope yours goes great. Thanks for stopping in.


  1. "Oh yes!" is what I think. And I'm also thinking "Good thing I'll be getting that journaling block"

    I mixed reinker and shimmer paint on my accent tiles for that swap too - I guess this month's pages will have some SHINE.

  2. Oh very very pretty!!!

    BTW - when do you think the shimmer paint will be in? I am just dieing to start using it!!
