The nights have been cooler around here. The days have been pleasant and sunny. No rain for a while. Of course we just planted grass seed out at Baby Creek so it's not getting any moisture to help it grow. We could use some rain. But the cooler nights prompted this card.
The sentiment is the digi of the month from DeeDee's Digis called Leaf Your Cares Behind. I just love that name for the stamp set. I used one of the sentiments in the set. It reminds me of being a kid. We'd spend hours playing in the leaves. I'm sure we were supposed to be raking them but I wonder how much work really got done. LOL!
I die cut the sentiment with MFT Cross Stitched Ovals. I inked the oval with distress inks: mustard seed, fired brick, mowed lawn, and spiced marmalade. I embossed the background with the Flourished embossing folder. It reminded me of the wind blowing. The patterned paper strip is Basic Grey. To embellish I added some sparkly leaf stickers. I rounded the corners at the bottom of the card.
I am entering these challenges:
- DeeDee's Digi of the Month: use Leaf Your Cares Behind
- Cards in Envy: colors of fall
- C.R.A.F.T. challenge: add some bling
- Lil Patch of Craft Friends: anything goes
We bought a new car tonight. It will take a couple days to get it as they have to bring it from another dealer. I got a twilight blue Outback. I'm excited about getting the car. I wanted to get used to it before the weather turns nasty.
Hope your week is going well. I'm looking forward to a fast end to the week. Thanks for visiting me today.
