Well, it's a Saturday morning and, as usual, I was up before 5 am thanks to the fur-babies. It was too early (and dark) to tackle the remaining autumn yard work so rather than doze on the daybed like I usually do, I decided to hit the craft room for a little colouring time.
It was rather enjoyable to colour "just because". I really don't have anyone in mind for this card, I just wanted to colour up this new image from Jess' College Fund. There is a fantastic challenge going on at her blog to introduce this collection of stamps - you really should check it out!
Did you notice the words etched into the button? I was digging through my newly acquired buttons (as if I don't have too many already) and thought that this one was just perfect to pair with this image.

- Shopping Our Stash #127: use something already out on your desk. I thought about taking a photo of my desk, but decided I didn't want the camera crew from "Hoarders" knocking on my door. EVERYTHING on this card was on my desk. EVERYTHING. I haven't cleaned up from the previous card so I used the same paper collection, button from the same collection, twine from the same collection, image was already printed, card base was already sitting there, my Copics LIVE on my desk, even the die cuts were sitting there, not put away from the last crop I attended! Just call me Sloppy Sheena.
As always, thanks for stopping by! The sun is up now and it's all of 6 degrees Celsius, heading for a balmy high of 10. Brrr. Have to get that yard work done!
