Good Morning! Yesterday Miss Boo (Jen) has announced the new Autumn Design Team for her weekly Clean & Simple challenges on splitcoast stampers. And what a surprise it was to discover that I have been chosen as a DT member for this term! I am so honored and excited and I'd like to thank Jen and the former DT members for giving me this wonderful opportunity!

A few days ago I shared a few pictures of my son and baby daughter, so today I thought I would share with you all a picture of my oldest daughter. Today was her first day of school and ever since she was little I have always taken a picture of her on the first day of school and every year she complains about it, but I do it anyway...LOL Someday she'll thank me for it!

She started high school today, oh where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday I was taking her picture while she was headed off to her first day of kindergarten.

It was pretty quiet here without her, but she really likes school and I think she was looking forward to getting back to school and with her friends.

My card for today is for the weekly sketch challenge. The weather here is so nice and cool and it reminds me of fall, so I decided to create a fall card today. The image is from SU's Happy Fall Y'All. I'm not quite sure that I like this card, maybe it's the image that I don't like. My husband isn't too crazy about this stamp set and I usually take his opinion to heart.

Anyway, I stamped the image and colored it using Watercolor Crayons and a blender pen. I stamped the pumpkin, colored, and cut it out and added it to the main image. The More Mustard background is embossed using the Cuttlebug embossing folder Leafy Branch. The Old Olive layer is stamped using Old Olive ink and the leaf/square stamp from the same stamp set.

I wasn't quite sure where I should place my sentiment, so I decided to add it sideways long the left side. My other added embellishments were twine and a button. Thanks so much for looking and I hope you all had a wonderful day! Pin It
