Fall is here...

It's the weekend. Well almost the weekend. Our weather is gorgeous! Crisp mornings that gradually warm up as the sun shines. I find more and more leaves with that smidge of red or gold. Autumn is arriving very quickly. First official day of Autumn is on this coming Monday. I can't believe that we've already hit the fall of 2008. Crazy how time goes by. Maybe it's because of fall that I'm drawn to papers, ribbons and designs with a fall theme. Forget the reds; I'm into chocolates, olives, gold, copper, burnt orange and amber shades. This is a card I made for a sketch challenge. I'm not in love with it as a whole, but I love the papers. I also got to try out my new Fiskars Threading Water border punch. I think next time I will make sure I adjust for the punch so that I don't have as much of the underlayer showing. But I still like this card. I used one of my new printed paper flowers on it too. I finally also have a good pen for the white doodle dots. One of my SCS friends sent it to me. It's the Signo White Gel Pen. It's so nice to have a good pen!

Well, that's it for now. I'll probably be back later. This is the first week I haven't subbed in more then a month! I have a lot housework to work on especially since my washing machine is fixed again.
