Happy Friday and Friends with Flair to you all! What a beautiful fall we've been having so far, I've been lucky enough to be able to get the kids outside to play at the pumpkin patch, cider mill and petting farm over and over and over again! My 2 year old daughters favorite part about fall so far is the corn box at the farm we go to. It's like a giant sand box but with dried corn kernels instead, she LOVES it!!! Note to self: scrap some of those pics soon while the memories are fresh!
The first card I want to share with you today is actually my first ever attempt at a sympathy card. I've always been to intimidated to try one and when I needed one I'd just get a store bought one (hangs head in shame). I was actually pleased with how this came out and it also came together super quick. Love the Kit of the Months because there are always new stamps and new inspirations to play with!
The next card I want to share with you is a fall card that I made for Unity's monthly challenge Falling Leaves. Nothing like getting it in on the last day! I had a tough time with this one. I originally had a totally different idea in my head for how this card was going to look but when I finished inking the leaves I hated it. Thankfully I didn't give up and was able to salvage it by cutting some of it away completely and cutting the rest into thirds and mounting it on cardstock and then onto some pp by My Mind's Eye. The leaves are also stamped onto a light grid paper by My Mind's Eye. The leaf stamp and sentiment are both from Unity's September 2011 KOM. Finished off with some twine tied in a bow.
