Happy Sunday everyone!
Hope your weather was a beautiful as ours was this glorious day! Makes my walking a lot more enjoyable! This was my third day! WaaaaaHoooo! It's really hard when your trying to get back into shape and have layed off doing exercise for so long!

Today we honored Pat Smethers as our featured stamper on SCS! Pat has such a fabulous gallery I couldn't pick just one so I took a little from several of her beautiful creations. Love all her wonderful rustic outdorsy cards!

Here is my creation in honor of sweet Pat!

All the images are from Rubbernecker's Kittie Kits Cause a Scene!
These images are so versatile! So many possibilities!

The images were colored using Ranger Distress Inks and SU reinkers! Flower Soft was used to fill in the sandy areas! I masked the cabin and stamped the tree trunk then used an artist brush with reinders to fill in the leaves. After filling in with that tech I used the leaf stamp from the Kittie Kit Cause a Scene! The background panel was done using the Faux Leather Tech found in the resourses section on SCS!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a marvelous evening!

I like the scene you created and the bg is great-keep up the good work with your walking-sometimes its easier to have a walking partner-I just saw a doctor on tv tonite-pres of the aha-he said for every hour we walk we get 2 hrs back on our life-I was encouraged
