Happy Monday..

Blog Hop Amazing Grace

It's that time again....

This month's challenge was all about FALL.

I love fall, its my favorite season, it always seems so short here in Ontario.

I decided to take colours as my inspiration for this card.

I used Text Style in the background with Versamark dazzle...you cant really see the subtle sparkle in the photo though, and inked up out on a limb...such a pretty set.

This card was made for a friend who has had some health issues lately..hope she likes it!

Now hop on over to the PTI forum and check out all the other gorgeous creations.

Use it #23 Just Because

Whats up.......

One more work day till the weekend...not counting today of course

Here's my Take on Use #23...
I think I got everything...the eyelet is in my tag, the Basic Grey paper is OLD, The stamp I know I haven't touched in FOREVER, and the non scrappy item is the tin.

Thanks for peekin...
