A Grateful Heart

It’s the beginning of another new week and I’m sharing a card I started last week. Card making was trumped by family fun (as it should be)! We took off for an overnight stay at a motel with a waterpark (Thank you, Priceline)! We’d originally planned to take the boys to a zoo that is south of us, but with the temperatures dipping lower than originally forecasted, we opted to do something indoors! The boys had a blast and we really enjoyed some time away from home! We ended the weekend with trick-or-treating back in our old stomping grounds. DH and I were accompanied by two skeletons and Tigger. Oh, what fun!

I’m still in leaf jumping mode, but with the temperatures delivering white frost for breakfast in the mornings, I think my mindset will soon be shifting to other things!  I fully intended to play along with Unity’s Friends with Flair on Friday, but didn’t get around to it with all the fun things we had going on!  

Stamps:  Unity

I used stamps from the 2012 August and October Kits of the Month.  The leaves I inked up with SU’s Daffodil Delight and then lightly tapped the stamp onto More Mustard to achieve a two-tone look.  The sentiment is not placed exactly where I wanted it because I didn’t leave quite enough room under the leaves on the banner strip.  Ah well.  So is the life of a stamper.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Have yourself a marvelous Monday!

    I was just telling my husband the other day, that there is no sound better then the sound of walking through the leaves! What a perfect card to connect with that memory…they were yellow leaves too…just like your card.
