RSG: It's unbe-LEAF-able!

Hi friends!

Today's the day for a new theme of Ready, Set, Go!
challenge group, 
a spin off of the 3M created by Jeanette!
We take ordinary challenges and turn them into extraordinary,
out of the box, stomach turning, nail biting challenges!

Well, maybe not that extreme :)
But close!

This month, I was the hostess and instead of throwing down the gauntlet
of a really hard challenge, I made mine a little more tangible.
I bought 3 wooden carved gorgeous leaves from a mom and pop shop
(say that 3 times fast!)
while we were vacationing in Tennessee a few years ago.
I saw them and thought we could use them somehow 
and packed them away ... 
until now ♥

My challenge was:

I've enclosed a leaf that I purchased years ago when we first started
the 3M thinking one day we would use it. 
 Now is the time!
I bought it during our winter mountain vacation in Tennessee 
where we had glorious blankets of snow. 
I also adore the changes of the leaves and all the gorgeous colors of autumn
so the leaf will be the focal point of your card!


Here is my card, using Gansai Tambi watercolors,
a white embossed leaf imprint from Unity Stamp Co 
Kit of the month: Moments between Moments.
It's definitely up on my favorites list!
The sentiment is also from Unity Stamps Co and a newer stamp 

You can see Barb's card here and Jeanette's card here
with their fall foliage cards!

Thanks for stopping by!

And just in case you needed a quick peek ...
only 34 more days until Christmas!!!
So close!

Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
