Happy Autumn Weather!

I am soooo happy! The weather has finally started to change here in So Cal... it's sunny and clear and COOL! I can feel my spirits lifting considerably. I am definitely a fall/winter girl, no doubt about it.

It's good to feel happy again because lately it's been such a bummer, with two friends losing their spouses and bad health news for family members (see side bar under Prayer Requests). I made this card for my boss, whose husband died on October 1st. She is a quilter, so I whipped out my Papertrey Ink Quilter's Sampler stamp set (and the companion Quilter's Sampler Sentiments) and made a card just for her. I actually came up with this sketch on my own, so I'm pretty proud!

Papertrey Ink Quilter's Sampler and Sentiments
Papetrey Ink Plum Pudding and Dark Chocolate cardstock, and Guidelines designer paper
Ranger's Archival Jet Black ink pad (which I heat set to be sure), Copic Markers V15, E27, R81
Papertrey Ink Plum Pudding topnotch twill ribbon

I'm super busy right now, getting ready for a holiday boutique, so I won't have as much time to stamp as I would like to. I do have a few (actually, a lot of) cards I need to send out, so I'll try to squeeze in some stamping time... and blogging time when I can. In the meantime, enjoy the beautiful fall season and be grateful each day for the many blessings in your life. God is good!

A thoughtful card and the colors are absolutely beautiful together. I'm sure that your boss truly appreciates it, along with your thoughts and prayers!
