Happy Fall with Lindsay's Stamp Stuff

I don't know about you, but I am happy that it is time for the kiddos to head back to school and to get back in to the regular routine. Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the fall colors, the gorgeous blue skies, the crisp air, and all the fun activities like apple picking, hay rides and bonfires. To celebrate all this good stuff, Lindsay is having an End of Summer sale Thursday through Saturday with 30% off everything in her mygrafico store.






To continue to show my love of the autumn season, I made an easel card this week using Sketchy Leaves along with the cracked glass and ruffled ribbon techniques.





After printing the leaf print on my card stock, I colored it using sponge daubers and my ink pads. It couldn't be easier and I think it looks pretty cool.




I apologize for the quality of my photos this week. I took these pretty late at night and was having some issues with my home-made light box.

Remember to stop by the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff store on mygrafico for the 30% off sale before it ends on Saturday night.

I also have some other good news. Laurel Seabrook has joined the LSS team. Please stop by her blog and give her a warm welcome.

The rest of the DT also has some wonderful projects to show you this week and, as always, Lindsay will have a special treat available for free on her blog.
