Happy Monday to all of you.  The weekend has come and gone and I didn't seem to get much done ... but I did enjoy myself.  Sometimes we all need to just slow down and enjoy life a little more, don't we?  I have had this image colored for ages and did manage to finish up a card with this lovely lady.

This sweet image is called Fall Leaves and you can find her over in the Time For Tea Designs' Etsy Shop.  Jo has lots of other cute images in her shop and if you check out her blog you'll see that she's having a fabulous sale, too!  Anyway, I colored her with copics and colored pencils and used some pretty fall papers by Reminisce.  I added some seam binding, pearls, a leaf diecut, and a sentiment to finish off the card.  

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.  Now I'm off to get busy on some DT work that's due soon :)

Hugs, Anita
