{9.9.2011} friends with flair

Here’s hoping…

for fall to arrive to the AZ soon.  ha.  That won’t happen.

It is still HOT, HOT, HOT around here.  And most likely fall won’t show up until October sometime.  Last year we didn’t cool off until mid-November.  UGH.  I really hope that doesn’t happen this year. Anyway, maybe this card will bring a little fall to my house somehow.  I’m using the sketch from the Horizontal Sketch Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

I’m using a CHA Unity release today.  A Bella Blvd co-brand called ‘Finally Fall‘.  It is full of great fall images.  Too, too cute!

I have an Assemble This! video for today as well.  I share how I do multi-color stamping with that fall greetings sentiment stamp.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to head back to the Unity blog to visit the rest of the Friends with Flair.

    Very cute idea to piece one of the apples. I need a CAS card idea for some “not so talented” ladies to make. Will case this one.

    Soooo sweet! The little patterned paper strips at the bottom and the paper pieced apple are adorable! Love the video–it’s always fun to see other people’s processes for making cards. I heard you’re having a “cool down” (i.e., it’s below 100)…ugh!
