Hi All! I hope you have had a great weekend-I sure did. My family and I had a wonderful time at Mt. Magazine State Park. It's only a two hour drive from our house but we feel utterly away from everything. It is so peaceful and quiet atop the highest point in the state. (Just over 2,700 ft.) We got to enjoy the first fall color and the brilliant sunshine that seems only to happen with this time of the year. The temperature was perfect and so was the view of the lake in the valley below. Our grandson enjoyed the hot tub on the balcony wearing his floaties and playing with a styrofoam cup. Aah, the simple joys of childhood...
Oh yeah, you stopped by here to see a card, didn't you? Here it is:
I wish I knew how to make it possible for you to click on the photo and enlarge it in order to see the details of this card! The leaves are stamped first with red and then stamped again with the Vintage Photo for a little more natural look. The image and sentiment are "embossed" with my handy dandy Sakura Glaze Pen and the brown mat is dry embossed with the Papertrey Ink Woodgrain Impression plate. The cardstocks used are Kraft, Dark Chocolate, Pure Poppy and Vintage Cream, all by PTI. "Thankful" is from a PTI stampset called First Fruits and the tree and leaves are from The Giving Tree, by Gina K. Inks used are Barn Door and Vintage Photo distress inks, by Ranger and Memento Rich Cocoa.
So, there you have it. A Clean and Simple card expressing my gratitude for my family and the changing season. Please let me know what you think. I love to hear your thoughts and comments!
Thanks for stopping by,
