Whirlwind of a fall - just like the breeze in the air!

Wow! It has been awhile since I have been able to find some stamping time.  Glad I did today!

First I want to share my card for today.

For today's SCS Inspiration Challenge 251 we were given a German website to browse called Tadenberg. I chose two items: iPod case and playing card design (Click on the third slide picture where it is the Ace of Hearts).

I stamped my images in Charcoal VersaColor and then embossed with Clear Powder. I used a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen and added Black Ice and Crystal Ice Glitter. Click on the picture below for a close-up sparkly view.

All images, embossing powder, glitters and ink are from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

This Thursday the play that I am performing in, "The Hound of the Baskervilles," opens at Kearney Community Theatre. You can read about it HERE.  We have been busy working on lines, set, costumes, and hair! I have been working on my teaching days off at the theatre in the box office, selling tickets and doing various other box office-y jobs.  It is a lot of fun, but takes away from my stamping time.

This past week was also Parent-Teacher Conferences at school, and I have had to squeeze in extra hours of work between the end of the teaching day and the beginning of rehearsals to accommodate that.

And having a senior in high school and a son getting married in about six weeks.....

In any case, I was glad to get in my studio today and make this card.  I hope you like it!
