Thinking of you makes me smile!

And that's the truth! I do smile when I think of all my friends in blog land. What a blessing you are to me!

If it's Thursday, it must be FREE DIGI DAY at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps! Check out these cute pumpkins! They are part of a digi stamp set...Country Pumpkins...being released today at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, along with three others... one of which is going to be the freebie for today only. So hurry on over...you won't want to miss out! One of our Design Team members, the fabulously talented Leah Cornelius, is debuting as a new stamp illustrator for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Today's freebie was designed by Leah!

Back to Country Pumpkins. I couldn't wait to print them out and color their cute little faces! And what better sketch to use than this week's sketch challenge at The Sweet Stop. You really need to hop over there to see the loveliness created by the new Sugar Babies Design Team... there are lots of "stars" you will definitely recognize. You can use any stamps you want in the sketch challenges, but if you have some Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, why not show them some love?

The cardstock, DP and ribbon are by Papertrey Ink. The rhinestone swirl is by Zva. I colored the pumpkins with my Copics (of course!).

It's starting to get cooler here in So Cal, which I'm loving. Plus, of course, the days are getting shorter. I can just feel fall coming, but I don't want to get too cocky... we're in for Santa Ana winds and high temps again before the weather really settles down towards the end of the month. But my spirits are already lifting!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a very smiley day!

Lisa, those are the cutest digi stamps! I printed some digi stamps out the other day. I colored them in with Stampin' Up watercolor pencils but when I went to use the blender pens, the black outline of the image ran and got all ugly. I even waited overnight...Any advice? Your card is so cute, too!

These guys are super cute - and your sentiment is soo true - thinking of you always does make me smile too :)

What a wonderful choice of DPs too - working with all that orange I'm sure you needed sunglasses - but it's worth it!!

Fantastic pumpkins and they work so well with the layout challenge. I need to dust off my SU! tag punches, I have an idea and hope to CASE you tomorrow! You inspire and enable me.... ha! :)

We have COLD October weather in Minnesota. Only a high of 37 degrees with strong NW winds tomorrow, so that means not much yard work I can do... hummm! Stamping maybe! :) Mark was in his Face Book and snow is coming from the west. Yes, I'm behind on times... I know you are on Face Book and many of my friends too, but I just haven't done it yet! It's hard enough to keep up on blogging... SMILES again and have a super weekend Lisa!! Hugs! :)
