Thank Goodness it is Friday

Happy Friday Evening... more like night but I don't want to be picky :). It is time for another Friday Mashup.
So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a "Fall themed" project (it's right around the corner, people!).
  2. Or Make a Project that uses "Brads...lots and lots of Brads".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a fun "Fall themed project that uses lots and lots of Brads".
Ohh how I love Autumn, Lisa said it in such a nice poetic way - see her description on The Friday Mashup Blog. I think when you love the subject it is easier to be creative.

Isn't this stamp fantastic, this was its first ink-up but what a way to make it's debut (I am going to ignore the fact that its name is Snow Dust). Can you tell I am happy with the way my card turned out, even as I am falling asleep at my keyboard as I type :)

I used 5 or 6 different "Fall" colours Stickles to make the leaves in the wind and a few remaining on the tree. I used a Color Box Option Pad for the Fall Colours stamp, then embossed with clear embossing powder. I used the same ink pad for the leaves under the large brad. I finished with a mini brads in the two corners.

Supplies: Cream and Brown Cardstock, Designer Paper-My Mind's Eye, Penny Black-Snow Dust, GStudio-Halloween Harvest, Making Memories brad, Recollections mini brads, misc ribbon, Martha Stewart punch, Stickles.

I have a ton of comments to return, that will have to wait till tomorrow. Night All.
