Be Grateful

Today as I was in my studio and watching the wind blow hard I couldn't help but think how fortunate we are to not having to be dealing with the ice and no power for weeks. I cannot imagine what my fellow stampers are going through and it being so cold. Here, when it gets to 32 degrees we think we are freezing and still have the luxury of having electricity and warmth. So today I dug out an image I have had for quite a while and decided to make one that states "Be Grateful". Although we are still in winter, I love the Fall and and all the changing of the colors of the leaves and the smell of different aromas that the season brings. I cannot tell you who makes this image as I had received it quite while back from a sweet SCS gal through the Wish-Rak. But I had fun thinking of the wonderful colors of Fall. I hope that you too can find something to be grateful for today.

I used Prismacolor Markers,Copics, Shimmerz, and a Clear Spica Pen to highlight the pumpkins and darker leaves. The pie and the light colored leaves were shined up with Shimmerz Candlight which made the top of the pie golden as it if it were coming out of the oven. The papers are from Bazzill and Stardust Dream Choocolate.

Deb this is gorgeous! I love the shimmer. I have never used shimmerz but the effects look like Twinkling H20s.

I love this card. The color scheme is so warming. I love your inspiration behind it as well. I'm guilty as charged when it comes to complaining about the weather. I get grouchy when it gets below 60 degree here. Shameful, I know!
