Just Another Prettie Monday...


Falling For You Sophia again - I keep using her to try & hurry up Fall! I love it when we can give the a/c a rest & the cats can enjoy sitting on the windowsills enjoying the cool breeze & whatever creature has them enthralled. I love the opportunity to allow nature to water the lawn & the off chance I get to utilize a sweater.

I used a fun layout from Danielle for the Prettie Thursday Forum Challenge. She wanted our cards to lose a little around the middle (in other words, make a tall card) but I really wasn't in the mood to get out an envelope of a different size, so I spliced my card off the side to 3 1/4 and it will still fit in a standard envelope. HA!

Since I'm in the fall mood - I reached for my Basic Grey Mellow Pad and used 5 different patterns (the cloud background Sophia is stamped on is in the pack - that's what I love about them, they all go well together.

This is such a beauty, Donna! OH, what a most adorable stamp, she looks so darling in her overalls raking the Fall leaves! Your coloring is absolutely amazing! The sky looks fab! I love your card design and choices of patterns too! I luv it all and I'm so sorry for being the worst blogging buddy ever! I have been super busy and it's all been great, but I have been missing you and all my girls! Not to mention, I haven't stamped in almost a week, eek! I hope I'm getting back to normal soon with Fall comign and the weather getting colder--I tend to become my normal homebody self then, hehe! Anyway, hugs and luvs! :)

I love the fact that you didn't want to get another envelope so you just sliced this a little more to fit the dimensions - ! That is great!!! Those images are so pretty and autumnal - I love Fall - it is my FAVE season :) and this card just brings up brisk cool fall days -- wow - where did summer go? its starting to get a little cooler here in iowa.... speaking of which - sending you best wishes from IOwa!
