GRATEFUL and a small Blog Break
Good Monday Morning Peeps!!!
Today's card share is made with the sketch challenge this week on the
Paper Players Blog. I wanted to make a Thanksgiving/Fall card for today's post and when I saw this sketch I knew I could make some pumpkins for the circles on the sketch.
I started the card with a base of Very Vanilla and followed that with some so saffron card stock and the DSP I used on the card is from the Autumn Spice paper pack from the Occasions Mini. Love that paper!! My pumpkins are made with pumpkin pie card stock and the large one is made with the wide oval punch and the small one is made with the 1 inch punch. I embossed all my punched pieces with the vintage wall embossing folder and sponged the edges heavily with Cajun craze ink. I used the Sizzix sizzlet Scribbles Swirls with old olive card stock to make the vines and little leaves. I hand cut the stem and sponged these pieces with old olive ink. I added some very vanilla satin ribbon all scrunched up and a few antique brads. The sentiment comes from the "Falling Leaves" stamp set.
I am taking a small blogging break for the rest of this week. It is a busy week here at my house and I also need a little rest to give my mojo some time to surface again. I am grateful to all my blog readers who stop by and look and for those who leave a comment or two and to those who e-mail me with questions or just to say they enjoy my creations!! It makes me happy to create and it makes me even happier to know someone out there is enjoying my creations! Thank you all and I will be back next Monday, maybe before with more fun stuff!!!
