Sending Caring Thoughts Your Way


As soon as I see the Cutting Edge Challenge, I am almost always immediately inspired to make a card. This week's challenge was no exception.  This card was made on Saturday after I saw the challenge.  I used my distress inks to ink up paper and die cut three of the wreaths. I adhered them together with a touch of glossy accents and finished off the card with a touch of twine and an enamel element. This card will be going to a co-worker who is having shoulder surgery next week.  Don't you just love the beautiful fall colors right now? They are beautiful!

That wreath is fabulous!! Yes, each day I smile when I walk outside and get to enjoy our maple tree lines street. Simply adore fall colours - just not having to rake all those leaves up when they fall down LOL!

This is gorgeous! When time presents itself to make a card, I most definitely want to CASE you! What a brilliant idea to use the distress inks and then die cut. I adore the colors of this season as well and this card captures them so beautifully!
