Just a Quickie

Can you believe it? Missing several days, then posting twice in one day? I know, makes no sense whatsoever. But that's the way it is...
After posting last time, I ran to the Post Office to send a box of finished cards to From Our Hearts (info button on right side of blog) and another of swaps to some of my downline in Maryland. Hi guys, the cards are finally coming to you! Afterwards, there were a few more things to get done, then a quick jog down to my dungeon to try another sketch. I'm so addicted to these things now! This time it's the sketch from Stamping 411. These are simple sketches with lots of information for newer stampers, but the sketches are really nice to work with. Sometimes simple is actually harder when you get used to lots of layers and embellies.
Anyway, I liked the sketch and thought I'd do something quick with it before I get cracking on dinner. Looksie...
All stamps and materials by Stampin'Up!
Stamps: Falling Leaves
Cardstock: More Mustard, Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Naturals Ivory cardstock, and Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Accessories: 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punches, Old Olive Wide Grosgrain Ribbon, and Dimensionals
That's it, short and sweet. Don'cha just love this DSP? It's so cool. And this card sketch is a great one to use when you're in a hurry and need something that is easy to put together. I love using the punches to add your focal point instead of cutting out each leaf. Sometimes quick is really better.
Enjoy your evening,
