to say hello

Hi all! Found this sketch over at Sunday Stamps that worked well with something that I had just been playing around with and had colored up.

I was searching through all my stamps looking for a specific Halloween sentiment when I stumbled upon this leaf stamp. I've had it forever and I believe colorbox put it out years ago.

I stamped it onto rustic cream cardstock using my Misti and versafine ink. I did heat emboss it using clear embossing powder so that I could color it using Copic's.

Sentiment is from Papertrey, Ink. I used this burlap like ribbon that I got from Hobby Lobby across the bottom, the tied a bow using the Bow Easy and adhered it on using glue dots. 

Well, back to my chores. I've got some doggy hairs to hoover up. Thanks for stopping by!

Great fall card - I didn't have "internet" while we were camping so I too have missed a few. This past week had such a fall feel wile we were camping, the "dog" loved the long walks on the beautiful trails. Want to go back when the leaves turn.
