Hello everyone! I'm so sorry that I haven't posted in awhile! Household duties called, and I didn't feel well for a while( you know the drill). This is a card that I made before I got sick and had to tend to other matters. I was playing around one day and found the leaves in my stash and came up with this card. The mat is some of my handmade paper which I tore to give it an earthy feel. The burlap I bought at Hobby Lobby. I put them all together and added a Crinkle Ribbon bow and stamped the sentiment. Thanks for peeking, and I promise I won't take so long to post next time! I wish everyone a safe and Happy Thankgiving!
Paper- Handmade by me

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween, and have not gained too many pounds from all the candy! Time to relax now and concentrate on this beautiful Fall weather we are having here in Alabama! I know some of you have experienced a freakish and early snowfall, and I hope you are all well and warm. This card was inspired by a stamp set that I purchased from Close To My Heart called Remarkable Wreath. It has different seasons in it so you will probally be seeing it again. I already have an idea for Christmas! Anyway, I decided to hang it on the door this time. I stamped the twigs and then the leaves, and tried to give it a watercolor feel. Then I fussy cut it and, popped it and hung it. Added a bow and shimmered up the windows with some perfect pearls. You can't see the pearls very well. For some reason they just don't photograph well. I left the inside of the card blank so that I could add a sentiment at a later time. Thank you all so much for your comments on my cards! I look foward to hearing from you always! Thanks for looking!
