Fall Colors

     Hello everyone! I just got home from MOPS after lending a helping hand with a craft that i came up with for them to make. I think that it was a success. I miss those days. I use to go to GEMS when my kids were little. They are great groups for mothers with Preschoolers.  Who doesn't need some adult conversation when you have little ones?
     Cardmaking is my therapy. I have a lot on my plate right now with concerns in my life.  Things are changing with my husbands job and the structure of our home life. This blog and making cards is the only thing sometimes that keeps me going. Isn't it funny how certain things can do that for you? I'm just glad that i have something that brings me so much peace.
     Anyway, I did finish a card today.  I used a Kenny K rubber stamp named "Brooklyn Babe". The colors of course are fall, but without your typical "fall" image.  These are probably my favorite colors anyway. I just love Fall! The papers that i used on this card is from a DCWV stack called "Amber Autumn".
I added a cork buckle and some orange ribbon to the center and i added Buttons to the 4 corners. I used a border punch from Martha Stewart, label and word window punches from Stampin'up. I figured that this would make a cute fall birthday card.
