The leaves are falling, a sure sign that fall is in full swing and winter will soon be knocking on the door. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, I love the changing colors, the crisp air and getting back to cooking comfort foods.
Today I have a couple of cards to share using stamps that are being released today over at Cornish Heritage Farms. There are actually 2 releases from the Shady Tree Studio line. One is Nesting Oak Leaves and the other is Nesting Maple Leaves. Each set includes an outline image and a solid image. The outline images are perfect for paper piecing and coloring. Here is one I did with the Nesting Maple set.
The finished card is 4x4 and I went with a kraft base so the watercolored leaf would be the focal point. The sentiment reads "He has made everything beautiful in its time". When I see the splendor of the changing leaves, the amazing colors on display, I know that verse to be true!
The other stamp being released is a Tom Allen Friendly Kritter image called Turtle Sled. This stamp totally captures the joy of winter.
Now, I will admit that I am not the biggest fan of cold weather or snow, but if you have to put up with snow you might as well make it fun. As I have gotten older the wooden sleds or thin plastic saucers just punish the old bones too much. We have since upgraded to good tube sleds. What fun they can be...until you hit a bump and fly off that is, lol. It's happened plenty of times. The bonus is the spray of snow that coats your face and eyelashes. Ahh, the fun of winter.
Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by.
