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.
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.

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,
