Autumn Thanks

Hi Friends,
I have neglected my blog lately.  Life has thrown me a curve ball and it is sucking the creativity right out of me I'm afraid.  But luckily I have some Fall projects that I made quite awhile ago for a submission call and I have been saving them to share when the right season came along.  The air has turned cool here in Western NC and some of the leaves have started to change.  There is a little crunch of fallen leaves when I walk outside which is a sure sign that my most favorite time of year is here. :)

This card focused on "natural elements" so I incorporated burlap, cork & burlap twine.  I stamped the woodgrain background using two different shadow inks so that the color above and below the cork element would have some contrast.  The tree from Lawn Fawn critters in the burbs can be easily colored to reflect the autumn colors and the little leaves added to it give it a different look, great way to stretch this stamp a little.

Tonight we are heading out to the NC Mountain State Fair.  Going to the fair is one of our favorite activities in the fall.  I'm ready to see all the fall decorations, the animals and eat some of what my sister calls "yummy fried goodness." Watch out Fried Oreos and Maple Cotton Candy, I'm coming for you! :)

  12. This is just stunningly beautiful. Another one of my most favorites of yours. Love all the natural elements. I'm so sorry to hear you're going through a rough patch. I'm thinking of you and hoping it passes quickly. If there's anything I can do, I'm just a message away.
