Thank YOU!

I was in tears reading all the emails, comments and stories everyone shared with me and I realized that, yes, almost everyone has been touched by Alzheimer's disease. That just makes me even MORE excited about this project!

My new set, Whimsical Autumn, will be released tomorrow night right after the Gina K Designs release party on Splitcoaststampers from 7-10 p.m. Central time. ALL OF MY PROCEEDS from this set will be donated to the Pennsylvania Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. Always.

Gina allowed me to share another peek of this set tonight....but I can guarantee even more at the party tomorrow night!!!

I know you saw the squirrel, the basket of apples, the single apple, the leaf image, the pumpkin, the pussy willows (the flower that Splitcoaststampers will not allow me to type!)....but there is more...there is another leaf image and two swirl designs....I created the background on this card with one of the swirl images:

REMOVED FOR PUBLICATION

And, of course, I wanted to share again the first image that I drew for this set---the basket of apples. I love this image because it is FUN to color and I know I will be able to use it all year long! I will show the whole card tomorrow and later on my blog---just wanted to give a little peek!


I will edit and include more information about these cards later---for now, I just hope you enjoyed these extra peeks of the set! Hope to see you at the release party--Join us for a night of challenges, games and good times!

And don't forget to head over to Gina's blog at midnight---she (and some members of the design team) will be previewing Mel's newest set--you're gonna love it!

****Be sure to enter check out this POST if you want a chance to win this set!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cant wait for the release! I just love that pumpkin card,and the apple too, but the pumpkin one with the swirl punch, awesome!

stampmonkey said...

Oops! I must've had this image of the apple barrel in my head when I commented on the card in your last post...no ribbon on the barrel there. *blush* Yes, I'm a bonehead. But I'm smart enough to know this card is going to be awesome too, and I'm looking forward to seeing the whole thing! ;)

stampmonkey said...

Okay, I'm gonna act like I haven't commented on this post yet (I think I need to get some sleep!).

Starting again...I love this card!! Autumn is my favorite season and I love the autumn colors more than any others, so this card is a sure winner in my book! ;) I love all the scrolls, and the flourishes give it a carriage feel (just like rita said). Great card! (And yes, I'm done posting for the night! lol)

Karinn said...
