Fall on My Mind

August in Upstate NY is a crap shoot in the weather department and this week the dice are rolling on HOT, HOT, HOT! Well, despite what the thermometer says, I can make it fall in my stamp room.

This is one of the stamps I bought from Motivet this weekend.

Isn't she adorable? I colored her with a combo of Copics and Prismacolor pencils. There is black glaze pen on the shoes, eyes and polka dots. Small accents, big impact. The Spellbinder frame is another one of the goodies I picked up at the show. The sentiment is from Rosie's Roadshow and I had to stamp it twice to fit into the oval I wanted to use. Don't look too closely, it is slightly crooked! As you can see, this image is quite large, it fills up most of 5 1/4" card.

The fun thing about small companies is that when there are shows like this weekend, you can actually meet the owners. They are a lovely young couple with a darling little girl! I have a feeling this little company won't be little for long!

One last thing, the Buffalo Stampers are the winners of the PaperWorks Co Ultimate Challenge! Wahoo!! I knew I picked the best of the best for this team. Thanks for your votes everyone!!
