First Day of Fall

 Morning All!  We had another hot one here yesterday with temps in the 90's.  Somebody needs to tell Mother Nature that Fall is official here!  So while the temps were soaring, I was staying nice and cool in the air conditioning while I made Christmas cards.  Thought I better get started since I need about 50. Here's one I made using 2 Doodle Pantry images -- pre-colored Holly and Juniper which I combined with the free DP sentiment, May Christ's Love.  Now there's only about 45 more to go!
Enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by! 
Supplies: Digital Stamps - Doodle Pantry pre-colored Holly and Juniper and May Christ's Love; Paper - Neenah Solar White, SU! cherry cobbler & garden green, generic white base; Ink - computer set on best quality, distress ink in antique linen; Accessories -- decorative edge trimmer, Cuttlebug embossing folder, dimensionals, Stampendous diamond dots.

  1. Just beautiful! Love how you inked around the edges, giving a slight distressed look, but oh so subtle. Love it. Have a great weekend.

    Sorry to hear that you have high temps again ... we've gone from heater last week to air conditioner this week ... not sure what happened to spring here we lost it somewhere! :-)

  13. This is lovely, great idea to use the precoloured images--that should help you get through the next 45...good luck!
