Today, I have two cards that I made for a wonderful project that Paulette (Scrapalette) introduced us to for Circle Mania it is called Operation Write Home. Turns out they are located right in my city and I hadn't heard about them before and one that I made for today's blog hop. I hope that you enjoy my cards and will consider making some for them as well.
There is something about cornstalks that brings fall memories. Today I used an assortment of paper from Creative Memories and the cornstalks and title are from the Simply Scarecrow cartridge. The embossing was done with my Cuttlebug and several sizzix folders. Hope that you enjoy it.
As you can see I am really into the trees and the fence with pumpkins this year. The owl was cut from the Pooh and Friends cartridge and the border was actually made with the new border maker from Creative Memories..... they have several patterns, but right now my favorites are the fence and pumpkins. Hope that you like it too.
This was one of my first attempts at distressing. After using the crimper on my card face it was easy. I really do like the fall season with all the changing colors.... it does remind me to be Thankful!
And on that note I am "Thankful" for you joining in on the hop today. Please be sure to check out all the participant's wonderful projects. I've posted the list below in case you've missed anyone.
