Charlotte in the Fall

Happy Wednesday!  Well, it was until I just lost my whole Blog Post!  Ugh!  Now to get it all uploaded again.

The mornings here have been a little cooler than they have been all Summer.  It's a harbinger of Fall.  It's almost in the air.  The hummingbirds have returned to my feeders again, and I'm very happy to see them again.  They are only here from August til about November on their way South.  In keeping with that, the theme for the Perfect Sentiment Challenge this week is to make a card using a sentiment of Fall/Thanksgiving.  The twist is to use Baker's Twine on your card.

Our sponsor this week is Shelly's Images.  You can visit her store HERE

Check it out and see all the fabulous images she has.  One lucky winner this week will win one free digital image.

Now on to my card for this week's challenge.
Materials Used:
  • Stamp image - Whiff of Joy - Charlotte
  • Sentiment and Leaves - Stampin Up - Days of Gratitude
  • Ink - Stampin Up - Early Espresso, More Mustard, Memento Black
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, More Mustard, Old Olive

That's it - Easy peasy.  For more inspiration, check out the rest of the Design Teams creations.  You can find links to their blogs on my sidebar to the left or on the PSC blog linked above.  Then head off to your stamping place and put together your own card and link it up on the PSC blog.  You could be that one winner of the free Shelly's image or picked as one of the Perfect 3.  It can happen to you!
