Fall is Coming!

Good afternoon / morning / evening!

Did you have a nice Labor Day long weekend?

We worked on the house renovations. Tom was up in the attic, under the house, inside, outside, upstairs and downstairs. We got some things checked off our list, and are slowly making steps toward moving our bedrooms upstairs. We may even start painting the outside this month!

Here's a simple card from the Silhouette store.

I only used the Silhouette cut file for the leaves. Everything else was hand cut or die cut.

Pattern papers - Carta Bella, Fall Break 6x6 pad
Stitched border die

I really like cutting the bottom off the front of a card and having pattern paper showing from the inside.

Enjoy your day!

A7 Wheat Thankful Card

OKay, so I'm not thrilled about how this card came out. It was so pretty in the Silhouette store, but I don't like the papers I chose or that I added shimmer on the wheat stalk in the middle of the bunch. Oh well, thought I'd share it with you today anyway. It would have been prettier with some pattern papers, but since it's a larger size card, I didn't have any papers that were "Fall-ish" larger than 6x6 I could use.

Silhouette store A7 card design
Trendy Twine
Shimmer pen
Enamel dots

On a good note, I'm going to cut out some leaves for our monthly frig calendar. That is always fun for me. :) 
Enjoy your evening.
Big hugs!
