The Leaves are changing colors and falling!

Hi, everyone! I'm not sure what it's like where you are, but here the mountainsides are turning gold, and the leaves are falling and blowing in the wind. I love it!

Under the Sea Pocket Letter

Hi, everyone!

Today I have Pocket Letter to share with you created for a Swap.
The theme was...

Under the Sea


I used my Cricut for all of the die cuts on this one. I forgot to write down all the cartridges I used for images, but some of them were...
Life is a Beach
Create a Critter

Jaded Blossom Happy Summer stamp set for sentiment

I love the waves and sunshine across the top and the ocean bottom sand across the bottom.
Background paper from DCWV stack.
Cardstock from CMTH, Colorbok, and DCWV.

On the back I stamped some titles on the cards and stuck some goodies in the pockets. The alphabet wood stamps came from Walmart.


Enjoy the rest of your day.
