Happy Fall Y'all!



I have a Thank You card to share today which was inspired by the talented Debbie Olson. I love Debbie's style and always enjoy visiting her blog for creative inspiration. I created the leaf background for this card using PTI's new Leaf Prints stamp set. This is a great set for getting in the fall mood.

I randomly stamped various leaf images in Pure Poppy(PTI), Summer Sunrise(PTI), Spring Moss(PTI), Pumpkin Pie(SU) and Kiwi Kiss(SU) on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of PTI's white cardstock. I cut 6 - 4 3/4 x 3 1/4 and set 5 aside so that I could make more cards later. I mounted the stamped piece onto a piece of Pumpkin Pie(SU) cs and added some of PTI's Summer Sunrise saddle stitched ribbon.

I die cut the leaf image using PTI's new leaf die collection and stamped the coordinating stamp image in kiwi kiss(SU).  Using a SU Thank You sentiment and some Memento Rich Cocoa ink I created my leaf tag. After attaching the tag under the ribbon I adhered the top portion of my card to some patterned cs that I had in my stash(so sorry but I couldn't find the manufacturer on the paper).

I ended up making six Thank You's which will come in very handy as I need to be sending some to all of my wonderful family and friends who helped me celebrate my big 5 0 last week.

Hope you are all doing well and thanks so much for stopping by today. :)

Hugs and Smiles,

Laurie :)
