~Life ~ Breaths~ Moments

Happy September Blogger friends! I can't believe we are now in the last quarter of 2015. I think the year has whizzed on by us like a drop in the bucket.
This quarter is certainly my favorite time of the year with fall, thanksgiving, Christmas and then of course I have a September birthday.
Now, I am thinking on preserving the garden bounty. I will be going to help my daughter-in-law on Thursday with her first canning adventure. I have the pot, jars and accessories. She certainly has the skill to do this just not the equipment. And, it will be fun working together in the kitchen. We do that well.
Now onto my card for today. This is another that I made for the DTGD challenges on Splitcoaststampers. Edna wanted us to use 4 different stamps to create our background and Kathleen wanted us to make a masculine card.
To create my background I used several stamps: Great Impressions' distressed background, Stampin'-Up's gorgeous grunge, Verve's text objects.

Stamped in Bermuda bay, tangerine and baked brown sugar. On the striped portion I used my SU markers to get all 3 colors.

My sentiment is from the wedding silhouettes collection by Artful Inkables. The feathers are a set from Stampin'-Up. I really like the feather images in this set. To complete my card I tied the feathers with thread and added some bermuda bay sequins.
Well, it's time to close this post. I have lots to do in my kitchen today. We are going to a friend's home to have a meal together, and I am bringing the main course. They have a toddler so this will make it easier on them.
Until next time........God bless.
