Goodbye Summer, I’ll Miss You

Hi there!! Today’s card is just to simply say goodbye to summer. The days are getting much shorter…and it makes me sad! I love summer and the longer days. I guess…I just need to look forward to Peppermint Mochas and Christmas!! Winking smile 
Magnolia - Chair in Sunset
For my card, I used the sketch from this week’s challenge at MDUC along with the Magnolia stamp, Chair in Sunset. I thought the empty chair would be kind of fitting for a Miss You card.

and a shabby chic frame made with a silicone mold,  paper clay and Frantage along with a computer generated sentiment.

Wild orchid Crafts–Inspired By Autumn - Wee Stamps Lomasi

Boy oh boy! Summer is officially over, but…that doesn’t mean the heat has left Southern Calif. In fact, I predict…a heat wave is coming. Typically, late September, we have a pretty decent heat wave…so I’m certainly not waving goodbye to the warm weather just yet. However, according to the calendar, Fall is here, which brings me to the current challenge at Wild Orchid Crafts.  Please, please stop by the Challenge Blog to see more inspiration from my DT buddies and to join the challenge, of course!
