September 30, 2013 Autumn Days

SU Autumn Days (retired)  Tim Holtz distress inks, sponge dauber, white cardstock, black cardstock

We have a friend who had a knee replacement the end of last week - and he LOVES to hunt - pheasant is one of his game birds that he loves to hunt.  I was able to buy this retired set from someone on a Facebook craft supply swap group and it has a nice selection of stamps to make autumn/masculine cards.  Was happy to add it to my collection.  I'm not one who has to have all currently available stamps in my collection - I have stamps that I like to use whether they are retired or not.  I don't use them for publication so it just doesn't matter.  Often times you can adapt a stamp in your collection  to come up with a "cased" card.  He is coming home from the hospital today so it should be waiting for him in his mail box.
     Challenges:
          Sweet Stampin  - Things with Wings
          The Male Room - Animal, Avian, or Aquarian
          Loves Rubberstamps - Fall Colors
          Sassy Studio Designs - Fall Colors
