For you... Thank YOU!!

Hello everyone!! I had this card made, but no time to post it... LOL! Such a COOL morning in Minnesota! Very different for July weather as we usually have 90's and high humidity!

On to the card now... I'm getting into the fall color mode and using my Nestie Labels die again as my focal point. I decided to use my retired SU! River Rock for my card base. Also added yellow Stickels to the flower tops which is from the set Inspired by Nature... LOVE IT! And finished with a fun ribbon treatment, ver's trying a bow.

Thanks for stopping in and taking a look at my creations... it's such a pleasure to share with you all!! ENJOY... and chat soon!

SMILES... Michelle :)

Michelle...this card has fall written all over it. Beautiful. Here in Ontario the weather is fall like for sure, actually it has been like that for the whole summer. I love your colour choices for all your cards, they are so unique!

Oh, so pretty, Michelle! You know I'm a fall/winter girl, so this speaks to my heart!

Strange weather all around the country these days. We're even milder than usual here in So Cal. I am not complaining, although I don't dare to hope it will last.

It's been a busy week with Stamp Club and Blog Hopping. Hopefully I'll get caught up this weekend.

Smiles and happy thoughts to you my dear friend! Thanks for putting my badge on your blog!
