Last Leaf
Sweet Sketch Wednesday
Sweet Sketch 23

It's Wednesday and it's Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Time to enjoy a new sketch from Arlana and to see what her Design Team has created for this week. Be sure to check their cards out at SSW and get some inspiration for your new card this week. Hope you will take the time to play along. We always love to have new players. For the next month and half we will be having a sponsor each week. You will not want to miss out on the fun and prizes.

This week I am visiting Arlana. We are anxious to have Nancy join us later this evening. We haven't had much time yet to create as we are working on many aspects of the blog. But I have enjoyed seeing Arlana's cards that she has made since I was last here in August and I am in awe!!! I definitely know now that if we could all see each others cards we would be amazed at their beauty. I always love the cards on the blog but there is something to be said about holding it in your hand and seeing it face to face!!! I am sure many of you have experienced what I am saying.

I love the seasons of the year but I am definitely a Spring/Summer person. I love the warmth and sunshine. I love the fall colors but there is a little sadness when I see the last leaf fall from the trees. For the past 6 years I have been caring for my father and each year in October and November I have raked 100 bags of leaves from his front yard. ..Too many the Northwest we rake and blow fir needles instead.


Stamps: Recollections, SU Autumn Days

Paper: Debbie Mum Harvest and Holiday, DCWV Mat Stacks Earth and Fall Combo Stack 2

Ink: SU Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip

Embellishments: Nestibilities, Ribbon, Stitching
