I have a 4 day weekend!!!  I'm so excited.  I actually spent today at a quilt retreat and my head is spinning with so many ideas.  I'm going back tomorrow to hopefully finish the quilt.

Its a fall quilt, so when I saw the digi by Glitterbabe, AKA Steph, (Badge to left) I thought about fall, a  cabin in the country, comfort food and of course quilts.  I love Country Can!  

Colored with Copics,  DP is by Authentique,  burlap ribbon and ribbon are from my stash.

I LOVE this Angel by Glitterbabe,  (AKA Steph)  (Badge to store on left top).  This is made for my cousins daughter's birthday.  I can envision this angel for fall, and even Christmas,  even a scrapbook page with the birthday girl's picture. I gotta get some more time to create!  Really like how this turned out.  I love the country feel with the colors, owls, doily and flowers.  

Colored with Copics,  Glitter pen on the wings.  Embossed with Chevron, (StampinUP)  Distress Core Card Stock by Tim Holtz,  all else from stash.

Today feels like Fall,  cool crisp, sweat shirt weather.

This Stylized Tree by Floppy Latte (badge to blog on left) speaks fall.  I think of apple picking and naturally apple pie. I love this elegant design,  next I think I'll try it in black/white or sepia tones.

Colored with copics and I used my glitter pen on the leaves for some shimmer. I love my flower.  I bought some crepe paper at the Scrapbook Expo and I've been having fun just experimenting,  flower is a Sixxiz die.  All DP, twine, button and pearls are from stash.
