Finished up a card that's been in the works. Also have added some wonderful new cards to Cards by Friends Page. Hope that you have time to check them out.
Also at the end of this post, have shared some pictures of our surroundings - photos were taken about a week ago. Just had to find time to edit. Now on to the card:
- Another set of plain thin rectangle dies was used to cut the 2 outer frames from white card stock. Sponged the inner frame with Persimmon (lightly) and then a heavier sponging with Carved Pumpkin. Outer frame is just Persimmon, heavy layer of sponging. The photo doesn't show much difference in the colors of the 2 frames, but IRL it's quite apparent.
- Heartfelt leaves background die was heat embossed Sparkle n Sprinkle Sienna Star, a very sparkling color, which is coppery with lots of glitter. Had never used this color of EP and thought it might look 'autumn-y'. It does, but the sponge pads used to color the leaves did collect some of the glitter bits and got on the ink pads. Don't think it will be a problem, though, as it should just wipe off. The effect looks quite nice I think - just hard to see in the photo, plus the image & frames cover a good amount of it.
- Sentiment is a snippet from the box, no idea what company or even when it was stamped!
Since I was so negligent with Halloween cards this year, I'm trying to get a few Thanksgiving cards ready. Or for the international readers, we'll just call them 'Fall' cards!

Thanks for joining me this evening. Hope that you have a wonderful Friday, and are looking forward to a pleasant weekend. Hugs to all those who are feeling under the weather, prayers for those who are in need of some uplifting (will not call out any names...you will know who is meant)...and many thanks for stopping by this evening.
