Feelin' Like Autumn...

Hello, everyone! I've finally emerged after drowning in back-to-school activities! Thanks for being patient with me! :)

It's a GORGEOUS day today. There's a chill in the air, and my windows are open -- I can smell autumn on the way. Makes me happy just thinkin' about it. I just had to ink up this adorable Penny Black stamp, Hoppy Day, available at Stamper's Dream.


The paper is BasicGrey's Indian Summer.  I embossed the background cardstock with the Cuttlebug Polka Dots folder, and I distressed the edges of the cardstock just slightly. I colored with Copics and applied some Cinnamon Stickles to the cattails. I embellished with a Cappucino button, natural burlap string, and plaid ribbon. I placed a punched circle behind the button for some extra color and dimension.

No more breaks for a while -- there are too many stamps to get inky! Plus, MFTeasers start this weekend! I hope you'll stop back to see what's new!

Thank you so much for the visit today! 

Have a great day! 
Christina
