Yesterday wasn’t so bad for a Monday and I don’t get to say that often! Work was the usual busy but manageable. Little Daniel was at my parents for dinner and he was a little better about his food this time. He has some teeth now so his smile is even better! His birthday is coming up so I’m going to help his mom Erika with the decorations, that should be fun! After dinner I went over to see my friends Brian & Kim and the wee ones. Heather stopped by quick too. Love getting to see so many peeps all at once! It got a little chilly here last night, I guess just to remind us that Fall is officially here. So long summer, Just so you know I wouldn’t mind it if you came back for a bit, just until April! LOL!
It’s Tuesday so here the weekly deals from Stampin’ Up! and there are some good ones!
Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog for our Autumn colors challenge. I did some fall cards over the weekend so I wanted to use some different stuff. The card starts with a base of Hello Honey Card Stock. I stamped the greeting from the Truly Grateful Stamp Set in Baked Brown Sugar in the lower right hand corner. The panel is a piece of Very Vanilla that I stamped with the Hardwood Background Stamp in Baked Brown Sugar. I used the Spiral Border Punch along the top and then used the Stampin’ Trimmer Rotary Attachment and the Perforating Stampin’ Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade across the top for a more authentic notebook paper feel! My leaf is cut out with the Autumn Accents Bigz Die from a piece of Tangelo Twist. I adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Two of the Autumn Wooden Essentials are glued to each other and to the leaf with Multi-Purpose Glue. To finish things off I tied a piece of Linen Thread in a bow around the top of the leaf. A nice simple fall card that would make a great thank you card! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the SUO Challenges Autumn colors. Stop by the blog and check out the other projects and make one for us to see! Thank you so very much for stopping by and enjoy your Tuesday! 🙂
