MFT Sketch Challenge card



I made this card for this week's Sketch Challenge at the MFT forum on Splitcoast Stampers :) I used the new "Chamomile" image from MFT, and patterned paper by Sweetwater. The flowers are Primas.

How's your week going? I worked some extra hours at the school on Monday and Tuesday while the teachers did some testing on the kids. I am really enjoying working there, and have had some super-positive experiences helping kids with different things :) The principal also asked me to represent the paraprofessionals on the school development committee, so I'll be attending my first meeting tonight to learn more!

Fall is definitely in the air here...temperatures are fluctuating a lot! One day we'll be in the 70s and the next we can be in the 50s! Earlier this week (I think it was Monday), the high was just 44 degrees! I checked back at my photos from last year to see when it started snowing. We got a dusting of snow on 10/7/07, and then the following week there was another storm where we got several inches...so the first snow of the year isn't far away...

I hope you have a great Thursday! Catch you all tomorrow!

this is just stunning! Love the stamping and distressing. My weeks is going well, but it's still a million dregrees and humid here. We don't get fall ish (that's 85 instead of 90) until late nov

So pretty Toni! Love the three Primas all bundled together...really gives the card that extra something!

We're starting to feel the cooler air down here in the Springs too! It'll be chilly in the mornings when I drop the kids off to school and then it will warm up in the afternoon. One day last week it only got as high at the 50's.

I'm betting we'll have a snowy winter this year!
