Hello my crafty friends, Happy Friday! I know I am not the only one who is thrilled that Friday is finally here! Oh wait I am self employed and technically work somewhat everyday..... LOL! And with being a mom do we ever not work? With Ariel back at school I am getting back into a groove and it's nice. Lots of activities and play groups not started yet so it's a nice break! :>
Today I have a fall card to share. Which is very suiting as it's very fall like weather outside. Just two days ago the weather has turned and it is cool, dreary (oh where are you sun?) and I've turned off the air conditioner! It's sad but who wants to go back to school when it's hot outside? Although next week it looks like a lot nicer weather! I am entering this card into this month's Paper Crafts September Challenge which to make a card with natural elements!
I used two natural elements to this card, the sticky back canvas by Claudine Hellmuth and a wooden butterfly by My Minds Eye. I stamped the Newspaper background by Hero Arts onto the canvas than distressed it with ink and by pulling some threads out (not the easiest with it being sticky) I "colored" the butterfly with distress inks: barn door, spiced marmalade, and scattered straw. Than I stamped the newspaper background on top too! I very much enjoyed making this card! :>
Ariel had a great first day of school! Her only complaint was that they didn't do enough work! Oh boy so funny! :> She is quite excited about the school year and they weekly homework books they have! Since I am sharing a fall card I will also share two fall wreaths I made! Which one do you like better? They are both brownish yarns but the second is lighter and a chenille like yarn:
That's it from me! :> Take time to jump in the leaves, well if they have fallen yet!
