Fall Thoughts

I am soooo ready for FALL, but it refuses to get cool around here. Even the little cool front that is heading our way will probably stall out about the time it gets down here. I know come January I will regret wishing for colder weather, but I absolutely love fall and wish we could get a hint of it. In honor of the season, all my cards lately have included some shade of orange and the funny thing is, I don't really care for orange all that much!
On a more serious note, one of the design team members lost a dear MIL this week. This card will be mailed to her. My project for today uses a journaling block from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Creepy Crow set. Since I really dislike my handwriting, I added a stamped sympathy sentiment to the journaling lines. I cut the circle with a Spellbinders Classic Circle die and with the paper still in the die, I colored the whole image with my copics and an airbrush kit. I used three FALL colors to create the colored background.
The sketch for this card is from the Inspirational Card Sketches Challenge #36. LSS is sponsoring them this week so you have a chance at winning 10 digital stamps from Lindsay's store. What a great way to build up your collection! Be sure to visit their site and link up a project using this week's sketch for your chance to win.

Lot's of great stuff going on at LSS and Lindsay's blog today. There is a brand new SET in the store that is just perfect for Fall. The set includes leaves and several sentiments perfect for all your cardmaking needs. Lindsay will be featuring this new set on her blog along with a freebie (of course) and a great tutorial on how to change the color of your digital stamps. This will definitely come in handy! And, if you haven't heard the news yet, Lindsay has a new nephew. So, to help welcome him into the world, LSS has the Babies and Bows Collection at 50% off. This is certainly a great week to be shopping at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff!
