Good morning, beautiful crafty people!
Are you loving September as much as I am? It is definitely my favorite month of the year, and not just because it happens to be my birth month...but it doesn't hurt! I love the cooler morning temperatures (perfect for running), and yet it's still warm enough during the day to be outside in short-sleeves. Apple picking season. Acorns on the ground. Harvesting the garden. All of it. Perfection. :) Thank you, God, for Septembers!
My card today showcases a new digital stamp set from Power Poppy, called Black-Eyed Susans. It's one of five digital stamp sets that are on the Fab 5 Sale all weekend long! Check out out:
Get on over there now & grab them up before you forget!
I kept the colors fairly neutral on my card stock & patterned papers from Jen Hadfield's Warm & Cozy paper pack. I wanted to showcase that gorgeous digital image. When you have images that are that incredible, you just don't need much in the way of doo-dads to dress it up.
I printed the image on X-Press It Blending Card in black ink, and colored it with the following Copic Markers.
I confess I didn't gussy up the inside of my card. I was running a little short on time; but I promise I will do it before I mail it!
There's also a fun little coloring contest going on right now over at Passionate Paper Creations and Friends. Check it out:
To get in the running for this festive affair all you need to do is color up one of these sets: Cuppa Buttercups, Apples in Season, Pure Prairie Bouquet, Sunshine of My Life or our newest - Black Eyed Susan, and link it up on the Power Poppy post over HERE on the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook page. If you play along, you could be picked the winner of our random drawing for a $20 gift card to the Power Poppy Shop. Cool, right?! So get coloring, my friends! I can think of no better way to relax this weekend!
Hop on over to the rest of the Bloom Brigade blogs to see their fabulous creations today:
