What?! No Copics?!

I know- hard to believe, right?!  I wanted to do something a little different than my usual so I decided to put my Copics down, and give them a breather.  I actually used my watercolor pencils for the first time in over 6 months!!

TLC has a new set in the store called Autumn, The Extras and it is jammed packed with gorgeous Fall images!!  You can find the set by clicking here

I took the Autumn Leaves Blocked 2 image from the set and duplicated it four times block-style in Print Artist to make it look uniform.  The sentiment is also by TLC and is part of the new set called, Fabulous Fall, which you can also find by clicking here.  I matted the sentiment onto a scalloped oval and then put some foam squares underneath it to pop it up and make it stand out in real life.  What I love about this card is that it can be printed over and over again easily to make the perfect mail-friendly Thanksgiving card! 

Thanks for stopping by today and hope that you have a great day!  :)
