Pretty, huh? It's amazing how we all interpreted this differently. I was drawn to the colorful leaves, so that's what I went with:
Here's the inside:
A while back, perhaps even a year ago, I was experimenting with distress inks, and colored a couple pieces of card stock by smooshing a few different inks onto my craft mat, spritzing with water, then laying the card stock in the mess. I kept the unused bits, (of course!) and used them to die cut the leaves. Then I got way out of control and did this whole tree themed card, using that adorable tree paper behind the main focal point. I masked the "I'm" from the sentiment then filled the space with a tiny fussy cut leaf.
(Side Trip: Does anyone know of a sentiment stamp set that is plural? Meaning, instead of saying "I'm thankful for you", it says "We're thankful for you" or "Happy Birthday from us", etc? I'd like to get my hands on that if it exists. There you go stamp manufacturers - I've just thrown down the gauntlet - I double dog dare you to make it happen! LOL!) Because, even though I make the cards, address the envelopes, stamp and return label them, and get them in the mail, I still sign them from me and my hubby. You know, as if he actually had something to do with the complete process. (wink)
But I digress. ☺ I finished the inside with a stamped sentiment and two more die cut leaves. (See? Way out of control!)
Now it's your turn to make a card or project inspired by the photo. Be sure to link it up at Just Us Girls so we can admire it! While there, please be sure to see what my teammates and our guest designer, Wanda Cullen, created - you won't be disappointed!
