Can I just say that you never really understand how irretrievably tied your life is to the internet until it is down? Anyone else having issues? I’ve been down going on two days. I’ve been able to grab a snippet here or there with my phone – thank goodness for that! That leads me to the card I created today – There is always something to be thankful for :-) This Quietfire Design sentiment from the Give Thanks Set pretty much sums it up! In my area nature is so aware that summer is waning and this weekend delivered one of the most beautiful days I’ve ever seen. I was up and outside earlier this morning as well and after sweltering through the last couple of months, there’s just a hint of chill and a calming breeze to signal the start of fall. Perhaps my internet troubles are some kind of conspiracy to make me go outside and savor this brief turn in the weather – what do you think?
This is the simplest card ever and it makes use of the embellishment pieces that don’t always get used. With a 6″ x 6″ base I stamped my sentiment in the center of the the card. I cut a frame on another panel 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ by using the jagged center piece from Spellbinders Imperial Square. For the wonderful filigree border around I used one of the corner pieces cut eight times and simply glued around the edge (with Ranger Glossy Accents) with the flat side facing out. For embellishment, a bow and flowers made using Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia . . . tada!
