Bloom

There's not too much more blooming time left, yikes! I love the fall, so I am not sad though I must admit. I am all too happy to turn off the A/C and open the windows and to don a sweatshirt early in the morning and again in the evening!

This gorgeous image is a new release from the Whipper Snapper 2009 Fall/Winter collection. You can find Garden Bloom here. I colored up this image with Copics after stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar Crest White Ultra Smooth cardstock. I can't remember the maker of the striped paper but the hydrangeas are Prima and the flat backed pearls Kaiser. The entire image is accented with a Stardust gelly roll pen from Sakura. The base cardstock is Prism and the mat layer PTI. This is such a pretty image and so much fun to color!

I hope everyone is gearing up for a nice holiday weekend. The weather should be lovely here in the North East and my hubs is taking the boys upstate for a couple of days-yea!! I do miss them when they are gone, but just thinking of the stamping and shopping time I will have all to myself makes my skirt fly up! Woo hoo!! Have a good one!

Wow! Your coloring/shading is gorgeous, Danielle! (And I'm right there with ya on opening the windows. I've really enjoyed it this week. We don't get that kind of weather around here often.)

Rose Ann said...

This is so cute, Danielle!! I love the colors, and your shading is so perfect!!

I agree about the fall weather coming Danielle - that's why we are New Englanders I think - we love ALL the seasons - each in it's time - how boring if it was the same weather all year round!?!?!

I love this wonderful bloom stamp and your colored it so gorgeously!!!

Thank you SO MUCH for the wonderful birthday card you sent me!! That cute little mousie chef with all his assorted pastries balanceing on his serving tray - just for me!! It was so nice of you to think of me GF!! I'll be posting it on SCS in my BRAK album (if SCS stops being so funky since the switch in servers!)

have a great weekend - alone and stamping!!

Beautiful card! I have to admit...there's no sweatshirt weather in South Florida until maybe January!! Eventhough I only moved 5 hours South, the weather during the winter is a major difference!! Still hot and Summer here!!
