The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.

You know, I have to confess. The word "abundance" doesn't creep into my vocabulary often. So, I looked it up and got this: "the number of atoms of one isotope of an element divided by the total number of atoms in a mixture of the isotopes." Seriously!? Apparently that's a chemist's definition of Abundance. For the rest of us, how about this: "fullness to overflowing."
Doesn't that sentiment just nail it on the head?!
I paired the "Sincere About Abundance" sentiment with the "Inspired by Autumn" from yesterday's teaser. I'm not going to tell you how many times I stamped these three images before I got them lined up right. Okay, Four Times! I used a masking technique to make the apple crate appear in front of the pumpkin. (If you'd like to know how to do this masking technique, just leave me a comment and I'll write up a tutorial on it.)
Yep, that's the same My MInd's Eye paper from yesterday. I thought I would make this a companion card to yesterday's card.
Don't you love this new Rolled Gardenia die? Hang tight because later I'm going to show you some tips to really make this pop. Here are the rest of the Die-namics I used.

I love that this new stamp set, Sincere About Abundance, reminds me to enjoy the abundance of good things in my life. There are way too many good things to list here, but definitely one of the good things – all those sweet, sweet comments from all of you about my projects. Thank you! My heart is overflowing!
