All mixed up!

That's me....confused! I don't know what the heck month or season it is, lol! I'm still making Christmas cards....& now today I made a fall card!




Actually, I just received this Standing Fall Tilda from 7 Kids College Fund, & my rule is to never put rubber away uninked. Otherwise, it may *never* see ink! I colored her with my Prismas & gamsol & cut her out with my Oval Nesties. The papers are SU's Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango (I had never used that color before!) & Basic Grey Nook & Pantry. The scallop border was done with the Fiskars Threading Water border punch, & the flowers were punched from the same Basic Grey paper using various flower & hole punches. I added some brown tulle, some Diamond Stickles on her wings & 3 Dew Drops in the corner.





A close up of Miss Tilda. I hadn't planned on cutting her out, but I never learned to color correctly & went outside the lines!! Oops!!

I hope you're having a great week....we're trying to fit lots of fun stuff in before everybody has to go back to school & work. Are you doing anything exciting for New Year's Eve?? It's never been a big night in my life, even before we had kids. And now, well my kids are able to stay up much later than I am, lol, so I usually tell them I'll watch a movie with them.....but before you know it I'm asleep on the couch!!! It stinks getting old, lol!!!!

Michelle your card is wonderful no matter what season it is! I have Christmas stamps I haven't put ink on yet and plan to use them all year! They are just too wonderful to put aside. Stamping is really an addiction. I need to control mine a bit. This is gorgeous. I am glad you decided to color this image up. I have never been a party hardy girl either Michelle. My cozy bed will call my name before midnight! After all I don't want to turn into a pumpkin!LOL
Wishing you God's blessings in the New Year.
