FALL ELEGANCE

The SUO blog challenge for this week is Elegant Fall....so it was a perfect chance to pull out the new SU pumpkins....I made this card along with 5 precious friends and my mom who came for our annual stamping marathon weekend.  The ladies arrive on Friday around 2:00 and we pretty much stamp until Sunday at around 4:00 I think we stopped.  We do stop to eat, and to make one trip to Twin Creeks Tea House in West Alexandria.....a great little teahouse where I met Michelle Zindorf for the first time.  (sorta to see if we would like eachother, and the rest is history. :) Anyway, we paused in the midst of stamping to create some elegant fall.  :) I love to color pumpkins,,,and I love this embossed dp by SU, it's gorgeous.  Fall is definetely one of my favorite times of the year.  I got married in the fall, I had two of my four babies in the fall....the fall is just that hunker down, warm and cozy, hot apple cider, pumpkin pie, colorful leaves, sweaters, warm socks, hot cocoa feeling, know what I mean?  I hope this card inspires you to go stamp some fall elegance of your own!  I have been revived by our little stampathon......good friends, good food, good music, and stamps!  What more could a girl ask for?  Gloria, Joann, Terry, Margo, Judy and mom, it was so much FUN stamping with you!!  Love you all!! Can't wait till next year!  Until next time, Karen
