Like most north Texans, I am SO OVER this summer. Seriously, the 100 degree plus days have just worn me out. I haven't even been stamping much lately
:-( But I did get a boost when my goodies from the new holiday mini showed up. One of my favorite things was this single stamp, Leaves of a Tree. I've been using my markers and different color combos and loving all of them. Poppy parade has not been one of my favorite colors, but I really like it paired with fall colors - it gives such a nice "pop" of color (heh heh).
I've only got a couple more days of hard labor at work (a total of 14 days straight, not that I'm counting or anything) and then I'll be off for what is probably my most earned vacation in a decade. I'm planning on doing a lot of digital scrapbooking and getting some of my Christmas gifts done well before the holidays (as they haven't quite gotten done the past couple years). No fear, I'm still planning on blogging so check back often starting next week!
