Busy week--not used to working so many days anymore. Makes me know moving to part time was the right move! Finally did have a chance to make a card & it's for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge--Fall theme. I happened to have a floral advertisement on the table showing a bouquet with 2 big yellow sunflowers & that inspired me to take out this wreath from Wreaths of all Seasons. I embossed it in gold on vellum, fussy cut & then colored it from the back with Distress and COPIC markers. I mounted it to a piece of cork that was die cut using the top part of the Flourishes Classic Keyhole Template Label die. The wood embossing folder is Tim Hotz & the scalloped circle is Spellbinders. Hard to see, but the wreath is stamped on the circle in VersaMark ink. Love this beautiful Fall paper by K&Co, so used it to cover the front of my card after sponging some Distress barn door on the edges. Twine & square brads finish it off. I think this will be a Thanksgiving card for my cousin & his wife.
We had a big birthday at our house this week. Keesha turned 14! We almost lost her 3 years ago & here she's outlived all our dogs so far. She's almost deaf--see how high she holds her ears up trying to hear?--we call her The Flying Nun (those of you who remember that old TV show will understand)--& she has problems with her back legs, but she doesn't let anything bother her--just as feisty & playful as ever--keeps her brother in line! I always think people can learn a lot from how dogs adapt & seldom complain. Thanks so much for coming by--your comments always make my day.
