Today feels like fall - there is a breeze and you can hear the leaves rustling. I need to sweep my sidewalk because there are acorns on it. Pretty soon the leaves will fall - now that is not a pleasant thought - it makes me a long time to rake leaves - but the neighbor kids usually help and we have lots of fun.
I did some shopping over at 2 Peas today - I do try to stay away from that online shopping - but I found a couple of the newer Basic Grey's paper in the 6 x 6 pads - these are great for card making and if you find a paper you really like you can buy it in the 12 x 12 size. I like that the paper is a little smaller in design - perfect for cardmaking. I find those I grab them. What I was really looking for was a replacement blade for my Purple Cows Duo Cutter. Finally sent an e mail to the company to see if they could help me.
What is your favorite cutter - finding one that cuts straight - is the hardest thing in the world. I really liked the Fiskars rotary cutter - big one - but I think I wore it out and the next one I bought did not cut straight. GRRRRRRRRRRRR.
Today's card is based on the sketch at Card Positioning System - every Sunday they have a fun sketch - I stayed pretty close to the sketch - just added in the paper for my sentiment.
Sizzix die cut for the leaves - cut from chipboard - painted with Distressing Paint and then inked
Basic Grey - Archaic line.
Brads - Karen Foster
Rub On - De Ja Vue
Ran the solid paper through a Cuddlebug folder and inked the embossing
