Thank you...

I'm here today with a card for no reason.  lol!  Just a card.  I made this cut on my Cameo yesterday with a leaf branch I found in the Silhouette store.  I drew lines around to make the window and then cut out the whole card front around that and it came out like this...

On the card base behind, I added in some Fired Brick and Gathered Twig distress inks and then stamped some PTI Text Styles on top of that.  A sentiment and some bling...and done!

Hope everyone is doing well.  I am in shock that we are almost to Thanksgiving.  I am already buying Christmas decorations.  My tree is going up tonight....is that crazy?  It's my most favorite holiday so I can't help myself.  I bought some burlap and red mesh for the tree and I am going to make some monogramed ornaments too.  Can't wait!  

Hope you have a fab Friday!  Thanks for looking today!

Laurie, this is absolutely stunning. I haven't figured out how to do that on my machine yet, still a beginner. You should sell that cut file I am sure people would buy it, I know I would.
