Another Tuesday, another sketch!  Sorry I missed you all last week, life got in the way of stamping (I know, the nerve right???)  Today I stamped an autumn card, basically because I am obsessed with it being fall soon and the leaves changing and the temperatures dropping (you hear me mother nature -- below 100F please - DARN Phoenix weather)!  Here it is . . . TA DA!!!!

I mostly followed the sketch, but it was a square, and I have told you in the past how much I just strongly dislike square cards -- so I made mine rectangular, but feel free to do whatever you like when you create your work of art.  Also, be sure to upload it and share it on InLinkz on the Skipping Stones Design Blog!  We want to see what you make!   I hand pierced and stitched the trail of "wind" that is blowing the leaves!  Hope you like it!!!

I also wanted to say thank you to Maren Benedict!  She is responsible for the awesome sketches you see on Skipping Stones this month!  How lucky are we to get to play with them????

Stamps:  Birthday Donuts (Skipping Stones Design) - the thank you sentiment, Timeless Textures (Skipping Stones Design)  Paper:  Chocolate Chip (SU!), More Mustard (SU!), Solar White Classic Crest (Neenah), Autumn Splendor - Candy Apple (The Paper Loft)  Ink:  Rich Cocoa Memento (Tsukineko), Close to Cocoa (SU!)  Accessories:  Brown Sheer Dotted Organdy (Ribbon FX - Hobby Lobby), Paper leaves (Prima Marketing), fabric, sewing machine (Singer), brown thread (Sulky), Dew Drops - Sunflower (The Robins Nest)
