I love Autumn.  I love the change of the seasons - even though it's been too many years since I've lived in a climate that actually had a change of seasons, and I love Thanksgiving. I love gathering with family and friends, new and old.  For me, Autumn and Thanksgiving gives me a chance to pause and be thankful for all my blessings.  My cards feature stamps from the Gina K Designs stamp sets Autumn Splendor, Fall Foliage, Petals & Wings, and A Year of Borders.  I used GKD Pure Luxury card stock in Ivory, Dark Brown, Asparagus and Pumpkin Spice.  GKD Sun-Kissed Autumn and Sundance patterned paper packs, Copic markers, Capuccino twine from The Twinery, buttons, Spellbinders nestabilities dies in Oval, Scallop Oval, Square and Lacy Square.  Cuttlebug distressed stripe folder, Martha Stewart punches, Recollections gold embossing powder and little pearl embellishments.  I also used various techniques from emboss resist to heat embossing with gold EP. Ink is Memento in Tuxedo Black, Desert Sand and Rich Cocoa  I hope you enjoy my designs as much as I enjoyed creating them.

Happy Harvest
