Thankful for you

There are times in life when you get to be the givers and others when you receive....This past week we were blessed by my niece,nephews and parents! My hubby has been laid up with an awful back injury and is slowly getting some comfortable movement raking leaves in our yard was a DAUNTING task. See below for our family photos....

I am SO Canadian! I love this "thankful leaves" set by MFT because it has a LOVELY maple leaf! I did a little faux letterpress look. I embossed the fall leaves Die-namics on a piece of sno cone card stock and then inked in the solid image with the new "Wild Cherry" ink!

Here is a side shot so that you can see the embossed edge. A few little border strokes with my Scor-pal , a sentiment and knitted button....and a very clean and simple card to give to my niece and nephews.

Just like my very clean! :)


Stamps: Thankful Leaves (MFT) Ink: “Espresso Truffle” Memento (Tsukineko), “Wild Cherry” MFT (Colorbox) Paper: “Snow Cone”, “Hot Fudge” (MFT) Accessories: Fall Leaves Die-namics (MFT), Scor-Buddy (Scor-Pal), Twine, Knitted Button Finished Size: 4.25x5.5
An unbelievable amount of leaves fell this year....I guess our trees aren't getting any smaller.
We ended up raking leaves onto a tarp....because we would have never had enough bags! Thank goodness for family with pick up trucks!

We were blessed with a sunny day!
