DL.ART Thankful Thursday #189 - Fall

{This is a scheduled post} Happy Thursday and happy first day of fall to all my northern hemisphere friends...or happy spring to those in the southern hemisphere!! I am leaving today for two weeks so I will not be able to visit you until I return. It's time for a new Thankful Thursday challenge at DL.ART and the theme this week is fitting...Fall!! If you use the code l01210, Diana will give you 10% off your order at DL.ART :)


For my fall cards, I used papers from Maja Designs Walking in the Forest stack. The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA and inked with Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.


For the focal point on my cards, I used a wheelbarrow die from My Craft Spot (sadly, no longer in business). I popped it up with foam tape and added leaves from My Creative Time. The leaves were crumpled and then inked to give them a worn look.


The banner is a My Creative Time Stitched Banner die. The sentiment is from My Craft Spot. This gorgeous crinkle ribbon is Caribbean Coral ~ Tropical Summer Bundle.


And this beautiful ribbon is Green ~ The Rainbow Bundle.


Thanks so much for stopping by!! I will catch up with all of you when I return!! Big hugs :)

Lisa, absolutely GORGEOUS! Caught my breath, because I always enjoyed raking leaves and putting them in the wheelbarrow to the compost pile. Such happy memories. Gardening is my true passion, and I'm no longer able to enjoy it as I once did. So artwork like this just makes me feel VERY happy! Your placement of the sentiment, and all the tiny details make for a lovely treasure! GORGEOUS, Lisa! hugs, de
