Thankful for Fall

Hello friends !! I have been busy busy...I just packed 55 cards into a box going to Operation Write Home...whew! I am Thankful that my cards are going to a good home.

Do you send Thank you cards all year long? Do you make them with a theme according to the time of year? Bright colors for Spring, Yellows & Blues for Summer, Red & Green for Winter, or how about some Fall colors?

These great new dies - Thankful & Old Oak Leaves from Die-Versions were just the thing to use for my Fall card.

I die cut the sentiment first, then die cut the Old Oak Leaves 3 times from white card stock, and pounced with Memento inks Peanut Brittle, Potters Clay &Toffee Crunch. 
Attached in a circular pattern to make a wreath.
Back panel of card was inked in the same way.

I also inked the jute to match and added a few dollops of Liquid Pearls.

You make cards for fun, make them extra special for the recipient. Gear them to the seasons.

I have entered this card into the Monochromatic Challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stamping by, and an extra special {mwah} for leaving a comment and/or following my blog....

Very pretty! I like that die! I usually try and make some thank you cards that would work for almost anytime. So I have them when I need them.
Congrats on sending all those OWH cards! That is a lot of work. I was busy getting together 47 cards that I took down to our local cancer center last week (In memory of my Mother) and I sent off 20 for cards for a cause at SCS. plus several birthday and Anniversary cards I needed to make. My poor craft room looked
Hope you are having a good week.
