Happy Friday Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

Woohoo! I am so excited to be back within the crafting community. I took the month of August off to move. I cannot begin to describe how sad it was to pack my beloved tools, embellishments and PAPER! I had to live without my crafting goodies for a month. Oh, the horror of it all! However, unpacking the boxes labeled craft room, after a hiatus, was like welcoming home old friends.

To celebrate being back, I took full advantage of this week's  Just A Scrappin' Challenge to get into my craft room and get creative. The challenge, is to create a card, project, or layout using fall colors. I was so happy to have my crafting items within reach that I decided to do a bit of everything: Copic marker coloring, embossing, using distress inks, die cutting and layering. Needless to write, I was able to play for an hour or so. It was marvelous!

To create this card I used Taylored Expressions' Sunshiny Day stamp set. This is such a sweet stamp set. The tree stamps, along with other wonderful woodland images, were the perfect choice for a fall color challenge. I matted my scene on a stitched mat created with Lil' Inkers dies. A little Copic marker coloring, twine and a cute sentiment (so fitting) and my card was complete.

It's great to be back! Thank you for stopping by!
