October Stamp of the Month Card

I was inspired by the CTMH Corporate artwork designed to showcase this stamp set. I added the grosgrain ribbon in the corners with the hemp because I ultimately cut the piece with the sleigh where the stamping is at the bottom instead of centered. I also chose to use Grey Wool cardstock as the base. The images are stamped in Grey Woolink on Colonial White and colored in with our coloring pencils and a few watercolor pencils because the colors worked. The other cardstock colors are Cranberry, Olive and New England Ivy. It's a standard sized card (4 1/4 by 5 1/2). Enjoy and can you believe that it's close to time to be thinking about Christmas already??
Swim class observations for today...

Jess had a sub teacher who really worked her! She loved it. One of the new things she did was to retrieve a ring he held with his foot. This means she had to go under water to get it! Wow! The look of accomplishment on her face was priceless! :o)

Amy is still trying to figure out how to coordinate her arms and kicking and now putting her face in the water when she does "monkey arms" or the crawl stroke. But, very surprisingly to me and her teacher, when she swam on her back, she had almost perfect form! Interesting! Also, her new task today was to go into the deep end of the pool and get pushed toward the bottom of the pool for a deep bob. She didn't like it much, but did it. She got to jump off the diving board a couple of times and I mean JUMP! LOL

Me, I was thankful I switched from jeans to shorts before we went...it was more humid than usual in the pool area today...LOL

Great job, Jeanne! I really like how you used the metal tag. I will have to cardlift that idea.
