Fall is here and it's going to be wonderful. Fall cards and wishes have been mailed to my family and again I forgot to take a picture before mailing. But with the aid of a smartphone I got my son to send this picture of his card. Thank you for being at my rescue and for being such an awesome son!
I enjoy using strips of leftover paper trimmings and basket weaving them together. I die cut the leaves, distressed them, splattered them with ink and popped them up on top of gold and blue thread. The fall die-cut was made by cutting out the letters I needed from multiple cuttings of a never used (till now) Christmas word die "falala". By cutting away the last two a's reattaching the "l", stacking several cut outs and glueing them all together, I made a thick-it "fall" to pop onto my card. The pieced together word is not even noticeable. Now you know and look closely, you may be able to tell.... it's a money saving trick.
