Autumn Chrysanthemums - KSS Monday

Today's 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More Kitchen Sink designs were inspired by my evening trip to our local HEB. You know that autumn has arrived in Texas when the sidewalks entering the store are lined with baskets filled with gorgeous chrysanthemums of every rich fall color. I knew this basket of mums for Multi Step Harvest would be perfect for creating seasonal cards for a couple of my hospitalized friends. The sweet sentiments are from a KSS set called Words of Comfort & Joy. (Post sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps).

  3. What really gets my attention here is how amazing those baskets look. You used the perfect colours of ink to give it depth and reality. Thanks for your comment on my Linky Party Card. You should do a card for the challenge. If you don't have any Crafty Secret stuff there are loads of free printables on the Crafty Secrets/Heartwarming site and everyone gets a $6 token plus one person gets $50. As to your comment about my Mom. It was great to spend the time with Mom even though it was a stressful time. She is 90 and had fallen 2x. In 3 weeks I got her moved and her house sold and I must say left her comfortable and happy in a gorgeous senior condo building. Needless to say it's great to be home!
