What a glorious day...

We are having September weather in November! Go figure! In September, we were having November weather, so I guess it is only fair! Anyway, today is absolutely glorious. Slight breeze, temp of about 60, NO RAIN, and plenty of sunshine. Life is good!


I only have one card to bring you today. I'm going to be pretty busy working up craft fair items for next Saturday, so I will probably be scarce this week. If I don't make it to your blogs, please forgive me, and I'll make up for it the following week!


This card features Nina's beautiful sketch for this week at There's Magic in The Air. I played a little with the bottom edge and the background to make it look like a wall and countertop. The 'shiny' is Glossy Accents. All coloring was done with my colored pencils and mineral spirits.




The challenge at Pile it On, was to make a Thank You card. The sentiment on this card is a TAC sentiment, and fulfills the Thank You requirement! OOPS! The challenge changed while I was looking the other way. It is now to use a leaf or leaves on our projects. I'm hoping this will still qualify!


Hope you like it, and that your Sunday is full of wonderful blessings.


Hugs! Patti J.

Well looks like your glorious day resulted in a glorious card! LOVE the table effect (trying to figure out how you did that) and finishing the table and wall just make the finish project beautiful. The coloring (as always) is gorgeous! Thanks for playing with us this week at TMITA and I hope you can find time between craft fair projects to participate with us next week too!

Wowzer Patti, love that counter top and the glass accents really makes it look like a tiled couter top, just beautiful. Feel honored that TMITA got to be part of the only card you got to this week! Our day was beautiful as well. The whole card is just wonderful and the little brassy brads finish it off perfectly! Thanks for playing again this weeks with us over at TMITA!

Beautiful Patti!

Hey, girl, can you do me (and the rest of your commenters) a favor, especially those of us with bad memories, and set your comment options so that the commenter stays on the same page as the post? Okay, now I'm being bossy.

Love,
Julie
