CPS sketches

School started this week in Florida, so Summer is coming to a screeching halt and Fall is fast approaching.  It seems rather abrupt to me since our Summer was so busy.  I'm not quite ready for it to be over!  There are things yet to do that will be difficult to squeeze in once the routine of school cranks up in earnest.  Once Labor Day is over, we'll have to sincerely buckle down and get back to the grind.

As reluctant as I am for Summer to end, I'm looking forward to working with the wonderful colors of Fall.  This season is one of my favorites for stamping, with the fun brights of Halloween and the warm hues of Fall leaves and Thanksgiving turkeys!  I'm sharing two such cards today, both for Card Positioning Systems from this month's sponsor, The {Stamps} of Life.

My first card is this week's sketch, a combination of patterned papers from Kaiser Craft in a fun arrangement of layers with a cute little turkey as the focal point.

This is last week's sketch, which in the flurry of visiting with family in upper Michigan and then a Tuesday travel day, I completely forgot to upload.
