Happy Birthday to You

IMG_6013

Good morning!  Ah, the lovely weekend is here and it’s a lazy Saturday morning for me which means a second cup of coffee and some playtime in the studio before starting the weekend routine :)  I had time this week to play with the colours from  the ColourQ challenge.  The pillow immediately reminded me of this paper from an old Basicgrey pad I still have.  LOVE those rich Fall colours.  It’s also my MIL’s birthday this weekend so I thought she would like the extra berry bling and sheer ribbon (‘cause I sure do!).  Have a glorious weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

I agree with Lynn--Incredible! I love how the scalloped top complements the scallop shapes of that fabulous stamp/die flower!
Yes, school is busy! The crazy September schedule always makes it feel like summer was SO long ago! My classes are really nice though, so I feel blessed!

Moe, I think this is one of my favorite cards you've ever made! I just LOVE the colors and the deep maroon, and the fact that you stamped the ginkgo leaves on the brown, it looks fabulous!

Y'know sometimes I wish I had an autumn birthday even though I love being a 'summer baby' purely for the wish to receive cards such as this! Oh that colour palette is scrummy!
Hugs!
