Papertrey leaves

Hi! How are you? Hope your day is going well wherever in the world you are!
I'm beginning my second day back at work (with kids). Wow! Was I ever tired last night! On evenings like that I sit with my stamped images and markers and think about coloring, but never get any done! I made this box for a friend who is a second grade teacher. She is terrific! I love this box template by Lauren Meader for Papertrey Ink and have had it printed on Razzberry for awhile. When I wanted to enclose a small gift for Trish I decided to get it done! I KNEW I should stamp the box base but I was pinched for time and afraid I would ruin it because I already had the scores folded. So I left it plan and just let the medallion piece stand on its own. She liked it.

Here's a close up of my coloring on the pitcher of leaves. This set by Nichole has three great images to color. I've got them all colored up ready to make into cards and can't wait to have time to color more of them!
Well, thanks for stopping by! My followers have steadily increased and I am so grateful to you!
I'm looking into adding Feedblitz for email subscribers. It takes me awhile to get these things added as I am so computer illiterate. I learn as I go!
Have a great day!
Cheryl

Cheryl: This is simply gorgeous. Stamping on the card base would be good, but I love the way this takes you straight to your colored image...which is stunning, btw. Hope you get your school stamina built up in just a few more days - have fun!

Wow, is this gorgeous!! Lucky friend! I love the image standing on its own, & I love how you layered the different Nesties...I'll have to remember that! And I know what you mean about not quite getting things done when you have one of "those" days.....sometimes I glance at my desk, & decide to go watch tv instead, lol!

I absolutely love this. The purple is beautiful but adding those fall colors in the shades you chose, makes the whole thing pop. It's beautiful!
May I ask who makes the box template? You also said the stamp is by Nicole. Pardon my ignorance, kinda new to stamping but is Nicole a line of stamps?
