Papertrey September Blog Hop 3rd card






As you can see, I used the 3rd sketch and first color combo.  I used soft stone in there too as well as some vellum for my banner overlay.  I think this turned out lovely.   So what have you been doing lately to get in the fall spirit?  We have been baking up a storm in our house.  My sons just started a cookie business in August and we have been baking dozens and dozens of cookies.  Plus we just had a fundraiser for Childhood  Cancer Awareness Month where we sold cookies to raise money for better treatments and a cure for pediatric cancers.  I also auctioned off lots of handmade cards and gifts using much of my PTI supplies.  It was a great success!  We raised a little over $600 this year.   I think we might have a lull here for a couple of weeks in the cookie making, but the holidays are coming and that means cookie gifts.

Just lovely. Every time I see this stamp set used I want it, but then forget. This time I've put it in my cart.

This is, it's, well, PERFECT, Melissa!! That would be showcased on my fireplace mantel!!

And, sigh, it's really unkind of you to leave me salivating for some of those cookies! Thank you, though, for not posting any photos of them or I'd have fainted dead away!! (Great job on the fundraiser!!) Hugs, Darnell
