Fall Friends

Here is a card that I'm actually happy with! I haven't created a card that I really like in ages! I used that fabulous saying from the Time Well Spent sent that Stampin' Up! has so graciously sent to all of their demonstrators. They are just the best. But anyway, back to the card. I used the leaves from Autumn Leaves inked with the Pumpkin Patch Spectrum Pad. For the leaves on the base of the card I inked the stamp and then misted the stamp with water, stamped it off once onto scratch paper and then stamped it on the card. For the two cutout leaves I stamped them full strength and then cut them out. Then I added a little sponging with the Close to Cocoa pad. I also sponged around the card and the piece with the saying. The saying was stamped in Chocolate Chip and colored in with markers to coordinate with the spectrum pad. The saying piece is layered onto Chocolate Chip and that is layered onto a piece of Garden Green. I also added some knots of natural hemp onto the green piece. The leaves are attached with stampin' dimensionals. I have already put this card into the mail to my good friend in Oregon. It's for her birthday with was Sunday. Oops, I didn't mail it until today. I hope she'll forgive me!

Anyway, I hope that you all had a great holiday. I love Thanksgiving! We took our family picture to add to our Christmas cards. We spent the weekend decorating for Christmas and today hubby put the lights on the outside of the house. Tonight we will actually decorate the tree.

I have several things lined up to share with keep checking back!
