There's nothing like a new stamp to get the creative juices flowing. This You Brought Me Love Gorjuss Girl arrived in my mailbox late last week and even though she might be dressed a bit inappropriate for the season I couldn't help but make another fall card using her. I guess that's why I found some of the Indian Summer paper from Basic Grey... that way she can still be enjoying some unseasonably warm weather later in the season. ;)

I've also come to realize that I'm currently on quite a gold kick with my cards. I'm so loving the addition of some pretty gold shimmer, whether it is from washi tape, sprays, rub-ons, or whatever else I can get my hands on. And while it looks great with all the fall colors I predict that my obsession will continue on into my Christmas cards as well. I'm already wishing that Pebbles will make some gold rub-on Christmas sentiments because the ones they have made look great and are so easy to use. I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed I guess.

Alrighty, I've got a day off to enjoy so I'll catch ya on the flip side! :)

Amy this card truly is Gorgeous! I love her with all her Fall/Indian Summer colors. You picked the best papers to use with her. I am loving your gold obsession, I think it looks fantastic. You should check out the gold 'Wink of Stella' pen. I am so so so wanting to get a clear one, but so far they are all sold out online. From what I have seen they work wonderfully. Hope you have a great day off. I have a full Monday thru Saturday this week, so I better get my touch on the move. :O) Hugs Lisa
