Hello Friends! Welcome to my blog! I have taken a little time off to recover. I am doing okay and the pain is getting better each day. I am getting squirrel-ly sitting around. I am so sick of sitting and watching television and it has only been a week! I am not a good patient. I like to be moving around and do what I want to do without worrying about restrictions!

Anyways - I have a project to share with you today!!! I participated in the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge today and the colors were So Saffron, Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke.

On the background piece, I stamped the background in Cajun Craze ink using the Open Plaid background stamp from DRS Designs. I then used the Simple Whitewash technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter over my stamped card stock. I love how it turned out.

This image is actually a SNEAK PEEK that will be coming out soon from DRS Designs. I love this acronym!!! Such a beautiful stamp for your fall cards!

The accessories I used are Paper Snips, Ribbon, Dew Drops, Technique Junkie Newsletter, Mini Glue Dots, Embossing from Cuttlebug, Big Shot 

Here are a few challenges I am entering...

Crafty Boots - Anything Goes Make it Monday - always Anything Goes Woodware USA -  Anything Goes Aly's Sunday Challenge -  Bows Pile It On - "B is for.."  bows Catch The Bug -  September Anythings Goes Sweet Stampin -  must Stamp - Anything but Birthday Clearly Inspired -  patterned papers Show and Tell - Anything goes  

I am off to rest some more! I hope you have a wonderful day!!!

Oh Chris! I hope you are ok! I need to continue reading the blog to catch up and see what has happened to you! I am stopping to pray for you right now.

Ok--This card is wonderful. I love autumn...and things of autumn...even though I live in FL and we don't have autumn...or autumn things...including weather!

I love the colors you used on this card, and the image is wonderful! Too bad it didn't say, "Thankful" for the "T", we could use it for Thanksgiving. I love how well your gems coordinate with the card. The section under the ribbon under the horizontal word trim is incredible...that is so pretty! I am guessing that is the part you made...or perhaps it is the background under the vertical word-autumn. Both are beautiful. The ribbon is a sweet touch, too!

Glad to be back to you and your blog!

He IS Able!
