Caring Thoughts Card

Fall continues to be on my mind, it can't get here soon enough. I love the sound of crunching leaves beneath my feet. My husband laughs at me because I walk through leaf pills just to hear the crunching noise. Unfortunately, with our really hot dry summer the leaves have already started to fall here in Oklahoma. It looks like we won't have a pretty display of colorful leaves this year. The trees are turning from green to brown.

Now, onto the card that you stopped by to see. This Caring Thoughts Card was made using this weeks Freshly Made Sketch designed by Jen Mitchell. I was inspired by Allisa Chilton's Thanksgiving card that features some really pretty stamped leaves. The smaller leaves on my card were punched with a Creative Memories punch. The larger leaf was part of a package of die cuts.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Caring Thoughts Card Supplies:
  • Paper: Brown card stock, pumpkin card stock, yellow card stock, and patterned paper by Creative Imaginations (Samantha Walker designs). 
  • Stamps: Hero Arts, CL476 With Sympathy.
  • Inks: ColorBox chalk ink in chestnut roan.
  • Other Stuff: Orchard harvest die cuts (28569) by Creative Imaginations, leaf punch by Creative Memories, brown colored pencil, and stampin' dimensionals.
