A Fall Happy Anniversary

Hey!  I can't believe it's Friday!  YEAH!  I am excited for this weekend because it is our bimonthly meeting at Archiver's!  I just love spending the day with the ladies, laughing and getting crafty.  I would post pics, but I always forget my camera!

Onto my card for today, I used a new set to me, Very Vintage Labels from WPlus9.  Love the gorgeous blooms in this set.  I paired it with the colors from The Play Date Cafe, such a lovely fall palette.

Stamped my flower onto white card stock and colored it.  I then cut strips of rust and light green card stock strips and adhered them to the top and bottom of my white panel.  I stamped my sentiment in black and framed it with rhinestones colored with a gold copic marker.

Here is a look at the inspirational pic:

For those of you who might be interested, I have pics of our chicken coop!  Now, we still have to paint it so it is very rustic, but the chickens love it and are really warming up to us.  Still no eggs yet, but then when they are molting, all of their energy and protein deposits go towards growing their new feathers, so eggs are highly unlikely.  Add to that the vanishing daylight hours, I think we might not see an egg for awhile.
