Another Autumn Memory

I had to do it. I tried to restrain myself from entering the GinaK search for next month Center Stage Designer but I lost the battle with myself! I just had to try it again since I had so much fun last month joining in all the preview and release party activities. I know that Gina won't choose me again but entering is fun.


This card's focus is the leaves that came from last month's StampTV kit called Autumn Splendor. I stamped them and then used some distress inks after which I sprayed the leaves with a little water and let them dry. I did quite a few leaves and this is the second project I used them on. I really love how they turned out. The saying in the label from Nina's Lovely Labels is from Melanie's A Year of Leaves


My memory is from one of my first fall trips to Door County WI and picking up the leaves to bring home to Florida to show my kids (little at the time) what the fall leaves looked like. They lost a lot of their color by the time they got here though. Anyway - I remember it and so do they.

I am so glad that you stopped by.




OOPS - I tried to copy and paste from an earlier post and all the comments from that one copied too and I somehow deleted that entire post - I sure messed that up! Sorry - no clue how to fix it!
