Hi everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend!! They seems to go by so quickly these days, and I don't know about you...but I am not liking that it is getting dark so early either. I guess it's to be expected, since it's almost October.

I finally pulled out my Starving Artistamps Mosaic Tile stamp this weekend
. Ever since I saw Tracey demonstrating this, I had been wanting to try it out. You may find the directions >>>right here<<< I used my Square Tile Mosaic Stamp, and my Asters. I clear embossed over my stamped image for a nice tile look and feel. The background is stamped with my Ornate Tooled Leather background stamp, and the Dark Chocolate Topnotch Twill Tape is from PaperTrey Ink.

**I have a fun new poll at my sidebar that I would love for you to respond to, if you get the chance. I also have my list of SU sets that I have for sale. I haven't priced everything yet, but if you see something you'd like...please let me know. I will surely accept fair offers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope to catch up with you in blogland!! ;)

Ohh, very beautiful. Love this technique and must try it. Very classy. I don't like short days, either. I am definitely a light person.

Love this super pretty look Rose Ann!!! Gorgeous! It's dark here early too and pretty soon we'll be going to and from work in the dark :(

OMG Rose Ann! This is beautiful. The clear embossing is a great idea for the tile effect.

This is really neat, Rose Ann! I don't believe I've seen this technique before. I will have to try it out sometime. I love the colors you used - so perfect for this time of year! Oh, I want to participate in your poll, but not sure what to choose because while I now have a spot in the corner of my "morning room", I'm taking over my very seldom used dining room and making it my very own stamping room! I'm so excited! I'm off work this week so I plan on moving my stuff soon!! Have a great day!

What a very cool look Rose Ann. And I voted for "i have my own room." Even though I actually share an oversized room with the office. But I'm pretty much the only one who uses the office either.
