Monday Montage #3

Welcome, friends, to another round of Monday Montage!! I can hardly BELIEVE that fall is really finally showing itself ... but, boy-oh-boy do I enjoy the cooler weather in the mornings when I run!! As the colors in the canyon begin to change I am again reminded why fall is my most favorite time of year ... it not only looks beautiful, but it smells GREAT!!

I took a stroll down "butterfly lane" for my creations this week (and for those of you who have been following me for a while, you KNOW how I am about butterflies!!)! This first card was a mix of butterflies and my new most-favorite stamp set ... Gorgeous Grunge. As my BFF, Cindy Beach, recently said to me, "It is the 'little black dress' of stamp sets!" I couldn't agree more!! It goes with EVERYthing!!

Stamps: Papillon Potpourri, Gorgeous Grunge, Off the Grid, Banner Greetings
Paper: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso
Ink: Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake

One more fall-ish butterfly creation (same color scheme ... sorta ...) with a TOTALLY different look (True Confession ... this is another one of my "Convention Display Board" samples!). I think butterflies are terrific for EVERY season!! So there ...
