Today, we're packing up the family car and heading North :)
Being in South Florida, pretty much everywhere is "North!"
We are taking a small vacation to celebrate little man's birthday,
albeit a month late. Due to work, college and school schedules, we postponed it until a time when we can all be together,
a moment I'm so thankful for :)
He and I were bike riding through the mangrove trails the other day
and I was so moved by the wonders all around us -
the gorgeous day we were having, the sound of the wind rustling in the
trees overhead, the feel of a slight change in the air.
We aren't blessed to have a real "Autumn" here in Miami
so it's nice to feel inspired by what's around us in nature and memories :)
I think I sprinted into the Cabana when we got home just
to find a stamp set to create the card I envisioned!
I wanted to create a card to mail to a friend for our
blogging group card swap and got right to work on this one.
I used my 'it's fall about you' stamp set from TAWS.
I started with a pretty CAS card base and built up a layer
of multi-colored, fall leaves by stamping onto the dsp and layering them together. I have been drawn to the rich colors this fall,
like the deep plums and brilliant blues - they are fun to pair up
with the more obvious colors of Autumn.
And, I don't get to say it very often, but I'm really tickled
with how this card came out :)
Wishing you an abundance of beauty this weekend :)
I'm thankful for you!
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
