Simple Fall~~

I must confess I CASed this card. It was so beautiful that I changed very little! Problem is, I made it weeks ago and now can't find it to thank the creator. :-)

I started with Chocolate Chip CS and I ran the front piece through the Cuttlebug with an old embossing die. To create the Olive square sponged area behind the leaf, I made what I call a "donut mask" where the empty "hole" to sponge is in the middle. What I mean is, I took a piece of CS about 4x4. I used scissors to cut a square the size I wanted out if the ,middle of that. The I held it still over the vanilla piece of CS and sponged Old Olive ink into the "hole" until I had the desired look. Capish? Then I stamped the leaf in Chocolate Chip.

I also created a liner for this card since writing on the dark card stock would be challenging. You can see the narrow strip of Olive I added to make it pretty!

This weekend I get some GranBaby time in San Diego! Yay! Can't wait! The lil guy is 8 months old precious! I plan to subject you to at least one photo next week!

Also, my annual Project Parade is less than two weeks away. I have lots to do yet, and I am super excited about it! I have 19 ladies coming (one spot still open....!) After that is over I will have lots of projects to share here. I try to keep it all a secret til they get here. I think it's more fun that way. I even asked them once if they wanted to know ahead or if they liked surprise. They chose surprise!

Try and have a super week. Bless someone with a hug and the mail!
