Fall Blessings


Happy Friday!  This week just flew by and I need to get going and make a few cards for our Thanksgiving which we celebrate here in Canada on October 8th.  Playing along with 2 challenges today.  The first on is at CAS-ual Fridays...Toot Your Own Horn; to create a card inspired by your blog header and the second one is at Splitcoast; Fall Leaves
Keeping it simple, I stamped the circles from Inkadinkadoo then overstamped with the sentiment.  The leaf from Penny Black is stamped with Versamark, embossed with white then Distress inks rubbed on and tied with a piece of baker's twine.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Penny Black, Inkadinkadoo, Stampabilities/ Mememto ink/ Distress ink/ wh. eb powder/ Versamark/ twine
