A jolly Hello

I am in love with MFT's October release. 
I have this adorable Santa on a wobble spring. 
I watercolored him with Distress markers and a Wink of Stella pen. Not sure you can see how glittery he is in the photo. 
I followed the  MFT weekly sketch 198 below:

Pumpkin Festival


Today is the Pumpkin Festival in Keene, NH.
 I have this adorable Pumpkin Pie stamp from Art Impressions. 
I love their whimsical stamps.
I colored her with copics and popped her up with foam tape. 
I die cut a pumpkin, stamped the sentiment and added glassy glaze for an embellishment.

Autumn

Today I have this gorgeous stamp from Great Impressions:
I colored it with copics and used a fancy die to cut out the image.
I airbrushed the background. 
I added a sheer ribbon and button for embellishments.

Java Great Day!


Today I have a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp!
Well, I do love, love, love coffee. 
So I do love this stamp set.
I went with a CAS and added some sequins and some fun wooden glasses for embellishments! 
Hope your week is off to a great start.
I had a wonderful weekend with friends on Saturday and my girls and grandkids on Sunday!
I am entering this card into Simon Says Monday Challenge "O"
for enjoying coffee in October!

Grateful


I finally got to play with some new stamps and dies from MFT. Wow I have been working 10-14 hour days at school. 
And that is really cutting into my stamping time!
I used the Thankful Thoughts stamp set and embossed "grateful" with some honey gold embossing powder. 
Then I cut some leaves using Doodlebug patterned paper. 
I followed the MFT Sketch 197 below:
