ever so grateful



Melissa Phillips is hosting this week’s Make It Monday and she created the most enchanting card with its focus being a dimensional leaf wreath. I had hoped to play along and use some of the vivid colors that are so prevalent this time of year. Well, I’m playing along, but the colors I used are of the softer, muted side of autumn.

I also managed to incorporate into this card a challenge from Studio Calico to use three stamping techniques with one stamp set. The set that I used is Papertrey Ink’s Autumn Acorns. The outside of the card used the stamps with embossing and paper piecing.


Tucked on the inside corner, the leaf stamp was inked using the rock-n-roll technique.


Today’s religious education class presented me with a test of my patience and, unfortunately, I didn’t pass. This card is going to our DRE to tell her how much I appreciate her help with the situation. (Yes, I am intentionally being very vague here.) I should be sending a card to Linda each week to let her know what she means to me. This is a start.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week is off to a great start.

Lovely card in the muted tones. Just love those soft patterned leaves. Another word for patience is long suffering, something hard for everyone! Glad you got to make this sweet card to relieve said suffering!
