Hi Friends, Where did this month go? It’s The first of August!! I am telling you, things better slow down! Like Pronto! I don’t want summer to end so soon! Especially since it has been overcast and or raining here lately and I don’t quite have the summer tan I had envisioned. Anyways, guess I can’t fight father time now can I? This week over at Just US Girls we are welcoming a new Guest Designer and her name is Karen Bourke. She has incredible talent and a wonderful card this week that you are just going to have to go check out for yourself. Welcome Karen we are so glad your with us. The word this week incase you haven’t seen (to the left and title..LOL) is Autumn. Which leaves things totally open indeed, if you ask me….pun intended. So when I saw this week’s word I decided to get a jump start on some Thank You cards as I am sure to need
one or ten as the school year approaches. I got out my thin-lits Sizzix leaves die and any scraps of fall colored papers that I thought would look nice together and cut away. Then I adhered them onto my card-stock using a paintbrush and glue as to make sure I got every edge and or leaf. This took some time. Then I cut it out with my MFT rectangle stitched dies to give it a nice edge. Thought it might look kinda cool to put a smaller rectangle window on top, and I was right! Mounted it on some DP and used a thanks die from Stampin UP. Finished it off with the stamped sentiment from Verve’s ____ set.
So now it’s your turn to head on over to Just Us Girls and show us what Autumn says to you! Who knows, you just might get selected as our Chic of the week! See you soon, Nanc’
