Skinny Blessings

Hi friends!  It's the last Monday of the month, and that means it's Tall & Skinny week over at Mojo Monday! This week I've designed a simple layout that could easily be adapted to a regular A2 card if you prefer.



The Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop is under way, and that means coffee and autumn (my two favorite things) all week long!  For today's card, I started by printing the Autumn Blessings sentiment from Verve's free Latte Love Dig Set, then stamping the cup from Get Together above it in ground espresso.  I colored with Zig clean color brush markers, then added a layer of microglaze to seal the colors before adding some glossy glaze and glitter. The square panel is sponged with antique linen and ground espresso.


I had a lovely weekend with the family, and Mark and I even got a little time to ourselves yesterday. He was so gracious to let me use some of our time to visit two craft stores and stock up on fall and Halloween goodies!  I absolutely adored the cozy little wood grain print from the The Story of Fall collection by Echo Park, then decide to add a bit of glam to the card with some golden accents.Seems like gold is everywhere these days, and it certainly warms things up a bit, especially with that golden double bow. The finished card size is 3.5" x 5.25".

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fantastically wonderful start to your week.
