Week 3 with Miesje (and candy)

Good morning! Welcome to my final guest spot with Miesje and "The Vine". I'll be sure to bring her back (if she'll come, LOL!) but we have got new stamps coming out nest week and a new guest! Today she's blessed us with this beautiful peek into Autumn and it gives me hope that the weather will turn cooler in just a few short months! (was 107 degrees here in the evening last night!! ugh, sweat, sweat)
I love these fall colors and her interpretation of turning leaves with these different rainbow-like hues. The Distressed Branches folder looks terrific with this set also , I must say! Here's some short and sweet deets from Miesje:

I went with a fall theme on this one. I used chalks on the leaves and gut them out. I also used some sponging on the Cuttlebugged background. The DP is BG Indian Summer. Some twine and a few colored pearls.

Thank you for all your time and talent this month Miesje! You are a true inspiration to me! :)

Hi Melanie

Thank you so much for the heads up on Miesje, I have signed up to her blog, I love what she has done with the vine (one of my most used sets at the moment) I have made cards for my church group with this set and I have used it to make a couple of masculine birthday cards too, not to mention a few girlie birthday cards. Thank you Melanie and Miesje for being so inspiring.
