So Long Summer

Hiya, hope you're doing well and are having a relaxing weekend. I've been enjoying a quiet weekend, last week was so busy with work and a new course at the Uni. It's very exciting to learn new things, but oh my, I felt like my students do when I saw the amount of books we'll need go through. Do I need to read them all was my silent question!!!

So a very simple card emerged this time from the crafty corner, the fabby leaf stamp is an Exchangeable stamped with red Brilliance ink and embossed with extra fine clear powder.I masked the card sock to create the field for stamping.

The sentiment is from the Pink Paislee Nantucket set, stamped with Memories black ink. I added two bold gems to draw attention to the text.
