Big and Small Blessings
It's contest week over at the Mojo Monday blog, and as luck would have it I had time to play along - love when that happens. Nothing better than a chance at winning some Verve stamps :)
Since I am on a Fall themed card making binge, I thought I would make, yes....another card with a maple leaf on it. Sorry, just can't help myself! The maple trees on our street are starting to turn colour and I could sit and stare at them for hours. At the rate I'm using these dies, I may need to get a back up set LOL!
I decided to go rustic and do some distressing on this card because I'm giving it to my hubby for Thanksgiving so he knows how thankful we are to have him - not to mention his great cooking skills which we will get to enjoy this Sunday as we celebrate Thanksgiving!
Loooove pairing this distressed stripes embossing folder with these leaf dies, and it was great fun using some very unloved hardware on the card and adding some twine in lieu of ribbon. Since most men don't have a clue as to what is "trendy" in the card making world, it was a perfect way to use up some extra supplies. Mind you, based on the amount of hardware supplies I have, there needs to be a whole lot of masculine card making going on before its all used up LOL!
