Waltzingmouse September Blog Party! Fall Blessings

Have you been counting down the days?  I know I have.  One of my favorite things about Waltzingmouse Stamps is the Blog Party on the 17th.    This is always great fun for me. I love to see what everyone makes with their favorite WM stamps.  I've come to know some of the "regulars" who play every month and know without a doubt they will be putting out creations nothing short of AMAZING!!  The theme this month is fall and although I went for the predictable fall set I did try to spice it up a bit with my colors - like this satiny purple bow.  I topped off the bow with a die cut leaf stamped with houndstooth, and some stacked buttons topped with a gem.
 
I will keep this short because I know you have lots of hopping to do.  I embossed my base with a pattern that reminds me of sunflowers (my favorite fall flower), and topped that with some burlap for texture.    I like the rough contrast with the smooth shiny bow.
I hope you have time to play along this month, just think of all the Thanksgiving inspiration you'll find here today!  You can see the inks to all the other blogs participating here.

Enjoy!
Jeanne

Beaners! Autumn at it's finest. Even better I think as you've lovingly placed in PURPLE!!! :D
The soft satin with the rough fibers is a gorgeous blend. Reminds me of the smooth pumpkin sitting in a pile of hay. Nicely done my friend.
Double buttons and a gem...LOL..you're awesome! Love looking at the details.
Have a great week!

Oh the COLORS, Jeanne! Not only is your coloring amazing, but I love your signature purple mixed with the lovely golds and oranges. The burlap adds such fabulous texture, as does your sweet floral embossed background. Every night I wish upon a star to be able to make a fab bow like yours...yes, you may hear me rustling around outside tonight because my wish has yet to come true, giggle....gorgeous fall card!!
