autumn.



Happy Saturday!

Any fun crafting plans for today?  I'm taking a calligraphy class and I'm super excited about it.   If anyone has a calligraphy Pinterest board, please let me know.  I just started one and it's kind of sad, only 2 pins so far.

The PTI October Blog hop has been fun....I'll catch up with the others that have linked up this weekend.  I'm such a fan of tags so I'm thoroughly inspired by everyone.  In case you didn't see mine from yesterday, it's HERE.  Big surprise that I went with a coffee theme:)

Here's today's card:


See that honeycomb panel?  That autumn die cut has a white interior box, like really white.  The collection has more of a winter white thing going on so I decided to cover it up with that pale blue panel and add some texture.

For so many  layers, this card is totally flat (patting myself on the back for that).  I spent some quality time at the post office yesterday, so I'm super sensitive to at least try to make my cards postal friendly.


I knew I needed a layer-ie sketch so I used Mojo Monday:


All the designers on that team are awesome but I gotta tell you, Teresa Kline's card sang to me, kwim?

I'm finally linking up to Laurel's 



When I saw the blue and orange combo, BINGO!  Let me just use my trusty Persimmon collection!

Yesterday I met up with the oh-so-fabulous Katie Brooks!  We met up at Impress and then ended up at Starbucks.  We keep missing our photo op!  Katie, we need to take a pic next time which is soon, right?  :)

Here are a couple pics that I took....the outdoor shopping mall is really pretty:


Anthro is my 2nd favorite shop there (obviously Impress being my fav!):



I fell in love with THIS sweater...a smidge expensive for me so I went home with THIS & THIS from the Gap.  Sheesh, I can't believe the price difference between online & retail....I got them 40% off of clearance so each shirt was $16...gotta love that green!

Okay, off to get another cup of coffee and my breakfast, a Chobani Flip Greek Yogurt!
