Sending Warm Wishes...

Just stopping in with a quick one today.  I'm in the mood for fall, you?  We had some amazingly gorgeous leaves in Kansas this year.  This is my favorite time of year for sure!  So here is another fall card for you!  :)

I am loving this Hero Arts Envelope Background....a lot.  I've had it for quite some time and just keep reaching for it.  The leaf is from a CTMH set called Many Thanks.  I've had it for awhile too and I just love the leaves.  I stamped this one with Pumpkin Spice Versa-magic and the went around the edges of the stamp in Red Brick Versa-magic.  After I didn't get a complete stamped image, I went to stamp another one and then decided I liked the distressed look of this one.  I went ahead and cut it out, added some twine to the stem and the attached it to the card front with foam tape.  I tipped up the edges of the leaf for a little dimension.  I had to add bling and of course that sentiment, from Tami Mayberry's set, Simple Snowflakes.

My husband took the kids out for awhile so I have the house to myself.  Silence is bliss.  That's all I have to say about that.  ;)

Hope you've had a great Sunday!  Thanks for stopping in!

  1. Well you had me when I saw the leaf-love, love leaves. Of course they go with my favorite time of year (fall) and my favorite colors too. Yes, I agree the leaf looks great kinda distressed looking, glad you opted to keep it that way. Laurie, your cards are just so beautiful-I always learn a lot from your creativity!
    These days I get plenty of silence (no kids or grandkids close by) :( but I sure do remember the days when my hubby would take all three of them off to the park or some such place...silence was bliss for sure! Enjoy your blessed blissful silence while it lasts!!
