{With Thanks}

Good morning! YEA! for a long weekend!! I'm so excited to have nothing to do today---yes, I should mow my lawn, and do some laundry and all sorts of other household duties, but right now, I'm not! I'm just enjoying a leisurely morning of stamping and Law & Order repeats---gotta love it!

I wanted to play in Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. The colors this time are screaming "FALL!!" I have other things to work on, so I'll keep this short! This simple card starts with a Kraft cardstock base that I stamped with Polka Dot Basics II in dark chocolate. I also stamped the image from 2009 Autumn Tags in dark chocolate on rustic cream and layered it with a scallop punch of the dark chocolate cardstock! I added some Bitty Box paper in Summer Sunrise, punched it with a scallop punch and tied jute around it. I added a Rustic Wood button to the bow.

I'm working on some things for a demonstration I have later this month (my first and it makes me want to throw up---that's lovely on a Saturday morning, isn't it?) ---we'll see how much I get done.

Have a good one~
Kathleen
