Autumn Blessings


Here is a card I made a few days ago. I have just loved coloring the images from PTI's new set, Autumn Abundance. Here I stamped in dark chocolate on cream cardstock. I colored with my copics and then punched it out with a spellbinders classic oval. The whole thing is mounted on PTI's scarlet jewel cardstock.
A Little Update
So last week I got my job back!  YAY!  That is why I haven't been posting as much, I am now if full swing preparing for the new school year.  There have been trainings, meetings, and classroom prep.  I have one more week off.  We start the day after labor day.  Its so hard to leave the lazy days of summer and jump into the swing of teaching again- but I always look forward to it.  New challenges, new beginnings, fresh paper, sharp pencils- I love September.

Happy you have your job back!
I thought this card was made with some new PTI paper, it looks like scarlet Jewel but covered with sparkles, like the shimmer navy CS they sell. So pretty. And your coloring job made that vase just pop off the paper! WOW.
