Warm Wishes

Hi there!

I hope your weekend has been a good one so far! We had a gorgeous, autumn day yesterday - beautiful, blue skies and a bit warmer temps. Some of the trees in my neighborhood are at their peek of color and I'm loving it! I took a photo of the Autumn Blaze Maple in my back yard with my iphone. Of course, I have no idea how to add it here to my blog, so if you'd like to see it, you can check out this link over on Instagram. I promise, it's worth a quick look!

I had some time yesterday to play with some ink, paper, stamps and dies. Love mixing elements from different companies to create a card!



The little butterflies and sentiment are from Hero Arts' Made with Love clear set. I also used the Sizzix, Branch with Leaves die, and the Simon Says Stamp, Circle on a Line die.

Thanks for the visit! I'm off to get ready for work - hope you enjoy your Sunday! :)

Some people pay lots of money to travel to see the gorgeous color of Fall leaves. Our leaves are beginning to turn here I Alabama, but will never match the splendor of "up North". Love your card, Barb. Great combo of elements!!

Beautiful! (your tree AND this card!) Love your mix of elements, and of course, the fall colors, Barb! Your neighborhood is looking much like ours, about 2 weeks later than normal, but the colors are on fire this year!! Paired with the emerald grass from all the rain we've had, it is a wonderland, isn't it?
