These days my little guy keeps me pretty busy. I'm not complaining at all, but it definitely leaves me with less time for crafting! This sweet little card looks simple, but I made it over the course of several days.
My craft room is also my laundry room, so once in a while when Im in there throwing in a load of laundry I'll do a little stamping or inking. Multi-tasking, right? Well, at least it makes doing laundry a little more fun, if anything!
I started out by stamping the scrolling design in Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. Then, I also inked up the large heart that I die cut with my Sizzix. I also die cut the tiny hearts and the scalloped borders, and inked them up too. I played around with several different sentiments but decided a simple "thank you" on a banner looked best. I always like to have some nice Thank You cards on hand.
After all the pieces were assembled it was just a matter of arranging them on the card front. Once I was happy with the arrangement, I adhered them in place. I also added a touch of stickles to the tiny hearts, just for some extra sparkle. Who doesn't love sparkle?

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year! I love when the air crisps up, the leaves turn and you can wear your favorite cozy sweater. It's always so hard for me to wait until September to start decorating the house!
I try to do a wreath for each season. Usually I have a plain grapevine wreath that I decorate but on my last trip home to visit the parents they generously let me have an old tractor seat. Might look like junk to some, but I really love it! It's been sitting in my garage for a little while as I pondered what to do with it. Well, I got started thinking about what I wanted to do for a fall wreath and I figured, 'let's use the tractor seat!".
Anyway, I really didn't do a whole lot of work on this. I really just hot glued some fake flowers, pinecones, and a bow to the front of the thing and then stuck it up on the wall. I really like it... hopefully my husband doesn't think Im too crazy when he gets home tonight to see it. :)
At least I didn't decorate the whole house for fall, yet!
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
