Shop Pumpkin Spice for My Mind's Eye

  If I had to choose only one paper company as a favorite right now, it would be My Mind's Eye.  The Lime Twist collection is so versatile and easy to mix up.  I started with floral/tree patterned paper (the "grass") because it had so many colors: pinks, greens, brown, and aquas.  From there I chose more solid-looking papers for the tree trunk, tree foliage, and birds.  Then I chose a sweet sentiment by My Pink Stamper.  Voila!

Supplies:
Cricut cartridges:  Straight from the Nest p.39 tree cut @ 3 1/2"; p.41 grass fit-to-length 4"; Everyday Pop-Up p.51 birds cut @ 1/2"
paper:  My Mind's Eye Lime TwistLife of the Party "Charmed" Trees Paper and Ric-rac Paper and "Love" Scallops Paper; Happy Go Lucky "Cute" Buttons Paper; Out of the Blue "Smile" Float Paper
stamp:  My Pink Stamper Sweet Goodness
ink:  Stampin' Up! chocolate chip and uni-ball Signo white gel pen; Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink
punches:  Fiskars cloud punches

Happy Thursday!

Wow, June - I've missed so many of your posts - I love the cool scenes you're making on these recent cards - fab Hallowe'en spooky house, lovely autumnal "nuts" card - and this lovely grass, sky and tree card is just perfect - the papers are so happy.

Great work, my friend - I need some of your inspiration - I just can't get to it lately!
