Thank You

Two cards posted in one day...amazing!  I wanted to get it entered into one of the challenges and it's done earlier than I thought.  Yeah, I'm definitely not time oriented...I'm task oriented!  Wish I had an equal dose of both!  Today's card is a special thank you to my parents for letting us use their house up north for the weekend for a fall color tour and Christmas card stamping weekend. :)   It's wonderful to have a place to stay that doesn't cost a small fortune for the weekend!  I've kind of had the idea for this card in my mind for a bit and finally sat down and made it.  Of course I wanted fall leaves since that was one of the reasons we headed north. :)  It also happens to go with a few challenges out there...

Less is More - Week 90 - Theme AUTUMN

Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge 140 - Inked Embossing Folder

The Paper Players 118 - Frames

For my inked embossing folder I actually did the reverse of what is normally done.  I wanted my frame highlighted, so I used my Stampin' Write marker to color in the depressed part (if that's even a word!) instead of using the brayer on the raised part of the folder.  It didn't color the frame completely, but I really liked the vintage look it gave the frame so I left it like that. :)  

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
