I hope those of you who celebrate had a great Labor Day weekend. I actually mostly "labored" on Labor Day. I have a puppy who hasn't quite figured out the places he is suppose to use the bathroom so I had some floors to clean up. Enough said.
The September TCP Tuesday challenge is Fall. That means fall colors, fall themes, activities, etc. I always think of sunflowers in the early fall, especially in September so I broke out a stamp set that hasn't seen ink in a while, Bearing Flowers. I stamped the bear onto Copics X-Press It cardstock, substituting the stamped flower with a flower created with the Sunflower Rosette CutUps. I cut out the image with a stitched die then colored up the bear with Copic Markers, adding a strip of patterned paper at the bottom of the rectangle. After adding a patterned paper border at the bottom of the card base, the image piece and diecut flower was attached using a layer of craft foam. The sentiment was stamped onto a small oval and I slipped a small leaf cut with a die from the Leaves CutUps.
