It's Friday, It's Fall, and it's Friends with Flair!
I keep thinking, one of these weeks I'll miss linking up to FWF, but here it is, the end of September, and I'm still keeping my New Year's resolution of linking up every Friday. We'll see if I can make it all year. It's getting tougher and tougher! Anyone else got a long FWF streak going?
I had a little spare time Wednesday evening, so I wanted to make a card for this week's FWF. I decided to try some things I don't normally do. Namely -- CAS, embossing, working with textured cardstock, and using my distress inks. So, I set about getting inky and having fun. Here's what I came up with:
I used two different Unity sets on this card: Susan Weckesser's "Autumn Grunge" (LOVE these leaves!) and "Grateful Hearts".
I used a piece of Bazzill textured cream colored cardstock for the base. I embossed the leaves using Ranger gold embossing powder. Then, I used various distress inks throughout the card. The sentiment was stamped with Close To My Heart desert sand ink. The bling is from my stash.
I mailed out the card to my BFF, thanking her for having me for dinner last week when I was at conference, and letting me play with her Golden Retriever puppy! So fun!
Hope you have a chance this weekend to create some of your own "Fun Fall memories."
