More Fall Leaves

I just can't seem to get away from these leaves! I know I need to get crackin' on the Christmas ideas, but for some reason I seem to be wallowing in fall leaves! Just love the crisp air and the actual smells of autumn. So bear with me a little longer while I roll around in the piles of leaves I've been making. lol I promise I'll get out some Christmas stamps and papers this weekend!! So if you're not too tired of fall leaves yet, come join me for another stroll in the leaves and kick a few around!

Stamps: Autumn Splendor, Grateful Greetings, and Bright Blessings Jumbo Wheel
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Naturals Ivory
Ink: Basic Brown (retired), Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, and VersaMark
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Jumbo Handle, Paper Corrugator, Designer Label Punch, Curly Label Punch, Paper Snips, and Dimensionals

One of the things I like most about this card is how the cardstock curled up like crazy after it was watercolored and then cut out. All of the little edges are curled up naturally. It's just as curly as a real oak leaf!

I also like the Bright Blessings Jumbo Wheel. Sometimes I just wheel it on scrap cardstock and trim out words that I want to use. Ane there's a lot of nice words and phrases on that wheel! Just think of it as getting a whole set of words and phrases for a tiny price.

Just had to show you another view of that awesome leaf. Wouldn't it be cool to cover that leaf with Crystal Effects and make a pin out of it? And I've got just the jacket that this pin should go on. Wouldn't that be lovely? Hmmmm..... Doggone it, there those ideas go again! And it's another leaf idea!! Will they never end??

Oh well, maybe I'm not ready to give up my leaves just yet. Maybe next week, or ummm, how about the week after that??? Stay tuned, you may just be surprised! Have a great evening!
