Thank You

Ahh..... thanks for popping in and joining me for my first Saturday of the school year :D  It is a sunny morning here in B.C. and I'm enjoying a coffee in my jammies :)  Then onto house stuff... today's card was made over 2 nights as this little stamper has been tired and even her studio couldn't keep her awake.  I just LOVE Mercy's sketch this week (do I say that every week? LOL).  Three panels always make me think...oh, use up some fabulous patterned paper scraps!!  I am right into the Autumn colours now and love SU's Pumpkin Pie...my favourite orange :)  It is stunning with almost any colour so I may have to add it to my list of "neutrals,"  right beside PTI's Berry Sorbet.  How do you like that wooden leaf button?  I picked it up at the LSS on my solo road trip in August...they were expensive and came in a pack of 6...but I couldn't resist!!  I have loved the cards out there I've seen with buttons for leaves on trees and thought I'd try out my own...a great way to use up the mountain of buttons I have somehow collected over the last 2 years!! LOL  The sentiment is from Verve's newest release...Dream Big.  I hope you are having a great start to your weekend...I want to get onto the house work so I can get a few cards made :)  Thanks for stopping by and your comments really brighten my day :)

Yeah, you made it through the first week :) I slept 11 hours last night LOL! It's always a tough week, getting the sleeping schedules changed, activities going etc. My age is showing LOL!

Love how you used Mercy's sketch. The button tree is fabulous as are the DPs and that cute maple leave button is to die for.

Enjoy your weekend :)

This is just beautiful! Where did you find those fabulous leaf buttons?

Aimes said...

We made it! We made it through our first week back - yay! Only 6 more weeks to go until we get another week off (yes, I'm already on countdown LOL!)
That wooden button is so sweet! Is that a maple leaf by any chance?! *wink* Definitely worth the expensive price tag because it suits this card so well!
Hugs,
Aimes

What a great idea to use the buttons on the tree stamp base! I love it! I'll have to whip out my set tomorrow and try that one out.

Congrats on your Mercy's Muse honour! You made a beauty!

Ohhh...loving that button...so yummy...and the perfect touch. Bravo Burgundy and Pumpkin Pie together for me are happiness...loving the fall inspiration!

Ann said...

Oooh, what a gorgeous color combo!

Janelle said...

Such a pretty color combination, Maureen. I would never choose it myself, but I love it -- so I guess I may have to give it a try... haha. Hope you've had a lovely first weekend after the start of school. It's always good for me to be on a schedule again, but I do miss just hanging out at home (with my stamps, of course). I was catching up on about a week of your posts and also have to say that I love, love, love the purse papers you made. That is an idea that I definitely want to try! Thanks for all the inspiration!

TannyP said...

Woohoo! Great job =) This is a gorgeous color combo and that wooden leaf is totally worth it! Beauty!!
