Inspired by Nature

Heart 2 Heart Challenges asks what it looks like outside where you are?  My Craft Coop windows are flanked with trees that are bit by bit losing their leaves.

My card was inspired by those leaves falling in the breeze and a card that I had seen on Pinterest here.  I love perusing Pinterest for card ideas there are so many wonderful artists to gain inspiration from, however I always put my own twist on the card.

I have always loved (until recently) sending happy mail so I seem to be getting a lot of use out of this Hello Friend Sentiment from the Grateful Heart Cardmaking Stamp set.

I hope you’ll consider checking out the Heart 2 Heart Challenges – their challenges are posted weekly but open for the entire month so it gives you lots of time to participate.

Thanks for stopping by…happy fall y’all!

 

 

Seasonal Trees

Today I have some very special artwork to share with you.  Each month I host a card swap that requires the use of the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month and each month I am amazed at the talented cards that I receive, photograph, watermark, swap out and send out to my “sister consultants”.

There seems to be a huge debate in the art world if watermarking photos is necessary, but the one thing that I want to avoid is having someone else think I made all this gorgeous work.  So enjoy the art, but also make a note of who made it.
