Leafy Thanks....CASology Challenge #216~Frame, Cards In Envy~Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall, 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #317~Colours of Fall, Cards In Envy~Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall, Creative Corner Challenges~Autumn

Hello,

Hope your Sunday was marvelous! We did our hike, as I mentioned earlier, and while the scenery was stunning, the trails were a bog-fest.  Nearly 20km of muck...but considering the views (and the steak that will soon be on the barbeque...), all worth it!  At least I didn't face-plant in the mud...now that would have been embarrassing!

A quick share of my card for CASology Challenge #216~Frame


Isn't that a cool stamp (a gift from a win over at The Paper Players; thank you soooo much, Nance!)  I inked it up with an autumn palette of distress markers, gave it the ol' huff-and-puff and ta dahhhh... A 'thanks' sentiment framed by fall foliage and, just be be sure, framed 'for real' with kraft card-stock. A similarly stylized "Merry" and "Love" are also in the set...going to give those a go in the near future....


Speaking of autumn....our trek today took us into the larch trees! Oh, but they are glamourous, dressed in their gorgeous golden needles....

Oh my goodness, Carol! This is gorgeous!! What a lovely stamp and you've added the various colors perfectly with your huff and puff method. The frame you added sets it off perfectly. Sounds like you had a lovely Sunday. Well, except for the hiking through mud and muck. At least you had pretty vistas, it sounds like. :) Hugs!!
