SSCB#35 Garden Glove

Can you believe it's September already?  I have so many leaves in the yard that I almost grabbed a rake this weekend.  I realized that wouldn't be such a good idea right now because the city won't be coming by with the curb vacuums for another month so I just let them lie!  We're starting a new challenge today at Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog.  A new challenge begins on the first Wednesday of every month.   This month is Summer's Last Hurrah!  It's a celebration of everything summer - fun times outdoors, family vacations, childhood, back to school etc.    I started thinking of the thing I would miss most once summer is over.. and that is my garden.   I love taking a turn in the yard every day and seeing what's new because it's constantly changing.  
Mary added a little extra challenge for the DT - can you tell what we were asked to do?  Yep!  A little paper piecing.  First I stamped the garden glove bouquet on white paper, and colored it with Copic markers.  Next I stamped the glove bouquet on  pretty patterned paper, fussy cut it,  and adhered it to the white card stock glove. 

Need a little inspiration?    Check out what the DT made - just click on their names here.

We have a special guest this month too Bridget Finlay

This is so pretty. What a stylish gardening glove--perhaps I would be willing to garden if I had cute accessories like this?
