Buckets of Love

September already, it's starting to look a little bit like fall outside, squirrels are busy collecting and eating acorns, and some pretty yellow leaves are already on the ground. But we're having a heat wave this week, and I also have another Whimsy Stamps Summer card to share :-) It's probably the last Summer card on my blog for a while...

For today I decided to create a postcard style card. It was quick and simple to create. Everything was directly stamped on to the card stock. I drew the line down the middle using a ruler. Colored in the image and postage stamp using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. 

Whimsy Products used:

I also used
Fancy Address (JFF Rubber Stamps)
Neenah card stock
Faber Castell Polychromos
versafine onyx ink

I am entering my card here:
