happy fall...

Happy Thursday...only 1 more day in the work week!

I wake up early...even when I can sleep in on the weekends I still tend to wake up around 3 am...ugh.

You'd think with "all that extra time in the morning" I'd be thee most organized gal on the planet, I'm not.

Anywho's, I managed to crank out his card yesterday morning...
The paper is My Minds Eye Stella & Rose along with Fine and Dandy...I'm surprised that they combine so well....The chippies are Stella & Rose...the sentiment is Paper Smooches.

I was inspired by the card sketch over on the My Mind's Eye blog:



The theme is "Fall"....so I added the word fall on the chippie using Lily Bee alphas.

Paige over on the Create Blog did a Chevron Call...who can resist chevron?

Just a reminder that the most FABulous Paper Issues is the sponsor over on the Flashback Friday blog:



Paper Issues Blog Design

I'm pretty sure that you're going to want to p-l-a-y.....link up your first tag for a chance at this ginormous prize'ola:



A full package of Wood Shapes, Dimensional Stickers, Bitty Blocks, and the 58 piece Ephemera.  There are 24 sheets of double sided 6x6 papers. 


I know...sweet mother of Pearl!

  26. Dang, those papers paired up rather nicely!! Love how you interpreted the sketch, like big time. The sewing is perfect, love that you chose zigzag on that panel! Sorry I've been MIA at commenting. I CANNOT believe how much I need/get to learn at work, and for the first time ever, I'm so brainfried that I am capable of passing out right after we get the kids in bed. I seriously can't believe that, it's so not like me, but I have years of that ahead of me apparently!! Now, another thing, waking up at 3am?? My body would not do that even if alarms were going off. With a 3am wakeup, what time does that put you in bed, lights out?

  27. oooh, love the fabulous papers and the great way you highlighted the stamps.

  28. Fabulous card, Amy! You are the master at mixing patterns. I groaned when I read that you get up at 3 am. I am not a morning person at all and I hate getting up at 530 for work. I'd be a total bear at 3!

  29. What a great mix with the chipboard etc. So if you go to bed at 7, what time do your kiddos go to sleep???
