Sittin' in my rocking chair...

Karen Lockhart has some new images that are really homey and comfy. I love her new Rocking Chair image with the cozy quilt and the basket of juicy looking apples. It's the perfect little image for some fall cards.

I paper pieced the quilt with some October Afternoon patterned paper and then colored the rest of the image with Copic Sketch markers. The image was stamped on Kraft cardstock and was die cut with a Spellbinder's Large Deckle Rectangle die template. This die gives the look of deckle edge scissors, remember when those were all the rage a few years ago?
For the sentiment, I used a fun one from Lisa Johnson's On the Couch from Papertrey Ink. Vintage Buttons and a scallop border adorn the bottom of the card. The Copic Sketch marker colors I used are shown below.
I don't know about you, but I'm definitely in a *sit in my rocker for a spell* kind of mood. The summer is winding down, the girls are all enrolled for school and I'm getting calls from school secretaries already asking for sub dates. Yep, school will be in session for the girls and me both very soon! We better enjoy this last week of summer vacation while we can!
