PTI Make-It-Monday and September Papertrey Peeps Challenge

It's been quite some time since I played along with PTI's Make-It-Monday challenge, but this week's video and challenge about coloring with Prismacolor pencils could not be resisted. So yesterday morning, I ignored my household chores, poured that second cup of coffee, turned on an audio book, and stamped and colored--such a good morning.  While last weekend had a hint of fall, the temperatures and humidity have risen steadily through the week and yesterday's temperature hit a new high for September 2; even so fall was calling me with PTI's Autumn Abundance, one of my favorite fall stamp sets.  I am still wishing for a similar set for each of the seasons.

And to my fellow Peeps, I know you are wondering what is going on that I have met Carol's September challenge to use fall as our inspiration during the month the challenge was made. To further amaze you, please note that I have completed two more cards for our Peeps challenges and will soon have those posted. Now I just have to catch up on visiting your blogs, oh yeah, and finish those chores I ignored yesterday.
To those of you in the states have a great Labor Day and to everyone enjoy the weekend.

Flourishes Birthday Bash Challenge #3

Starting off September with the aster which is the flower for September in Flourishes Calendar Basics #3 stamp set which I used for my card in the third Birthday Bash challenge for Flourishes.

I stamped the flower image in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copics on a button card die cut stamped with a border from Button Boutique (both from PTI). The sentiment  from Mixed Messages and the flourish,stamped in Chrome Yellow Archival ink is from Vintage Labels  (PTI). I used a Tiny Tags die cut(PTI). Papers include Vintage Cream and Aqua Mist CS (PTI) and patterned paper from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop paper pad.

Have a great day,
