Still here!

I'm still here, in case you've been wondering!  I'm just in crazy mode getting ready for my weekend at the Rockton Fair along with working, entertaining our Austrian visitors and holding my monthly Tri-City Stampers team meeting.  I could use an extra 12 or so hours in every day this week!  I do have something new to show you, though!  This is a card I designed for one of the make-n-takes at our team meeting this week.  Have a look:

Fall-inspired card featuring leaves made with the Autumn Accents die and sentiment from the Pursuit of Happiness set.
Don't those leaves look real?!?  They're not!  They're just paper and ink and are really easy to make.  Lots of sponging and some distressing and they're ready to go.  I plan to do these with my monthly techniques group this month too...I just love them so much!  If I get REALLY ambitious and can find a few free hours I'd love to make a wreath with theses leaves...we'll see...maybe I might get it done in time for NEXT fall!  The rest of this card is pretty simple so that the leaves are the focal point.  I did use the woodgrain TIEF and some Core'dinations cardstock for the bark effect on the background and I added a bit of seam binding ribbon in Always Artichoke that I threaded through one of the gorgeous brushed bronze buttons.  Oh, how I love fall and the stunning colour...I'm so glad I was able to capture a little bit of if on this card!
