Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the first of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge over at House of Cards and this month we have a great theme for you: Texture and/or these fall colors...

For today's card I've chosen to use both texture, by using the Woodgrain TIEF from Stampin' Up! and vellum and one of the colors, in this case Cajun Craze from SU...

Ink: Cajun Craze and Jet Black StazOn
Stamp set: For All Things and Vintage Leaves (available in a bundle with the Framelits
Tools: Woodgrain TIEF, Stampin' Sponges, Leaf Framelits and Deco Labels Framelits
Adhesive: Stampin' Dimensionals and Tombow
