Thanks and Giving

Hello everyone and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope you had a great weekend and things are going smoothly for you on this Monday.  My weekends are pretty busy with my job as part of the Children's Ministry Team and for once in my life I can say I actually look forward to Mondays!  Never thought I would here myself say that!  I'm  still trying to find that perfect balance of work, taking care of my home and family and finding a little "me-time".  Right now I'm thinking Monday may just the perfect day for some "me-time", definitely something to feel thankful for!  So, let me show you what I've been working on this morning:

 I very often have a hard time with knowing when to stop on a card!  The sentiment and sweet image from the "Be Full" stamp set by Neat & Tangled seems so perfect and meaningful to me. I didn't want to add a lot of embellishments to take away from the beautiful message, so I stopped after adding a bit of Wink of Stella glitter and Gold Stickles. 

 After stamping the image, I used rubber cement to mask the pumpkin and leaves then air brushed the background with a light aqua Copic Marker.  My mat is cut out with a Cross Stitch Rectangle Die from My Favorite Things.

The plaid print is from the Perfectly Plaid Fall paper pack by Lawn Fawn.

Okay, that's about it for now. I still have lots to do on my Monday.  I hope you have a great day and I appreciate your visit - see you soon...
