Gothic Arches "end of summer"


The theme at Gothic arches is "end of summer". Rather than thinking of a particular event like back to school or labor day, I thought of the mood late summer calls up in me. Normally i would not think of blue, but this summer it never got really warm, so blue seemed quite appropriate. Imixed it with some brown, the end of a season always conjures up the feeling of old for me, a little wistful, thoughtful and sad. Now I can't wait for the crispness of autumn to start....

The gorgeous image is from Nancy's freebies.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
