Hello and Happy Friday!!    It is amazing how some weeks just fly by.   Today’s card once again features the Painted Autumn Suite.   BUT, instead of the lovely sunflowers being the focal image, I chose the acorns!   Tell me you don’t remember being a little kid and playing with acorns.   Between popping the “caps” off of the top of the acorns.   Scooping out the nutty flesh to make little fairy bowls.   I can remember making so many fun things with acorns as kids.  Such fond memories!

Handmade greeting card with Early Espresso card base, Tangerine Tango mat, acorn paper with hand stamped acorn with simple thank you sentiment

A-corny Thanks!

This card was a snap to put together and the results were great!  My favorite part is the little stamped acorn with the sentiment.   The sentiment is from the stamp set All Things Thanks.   Clean and simple.    Can’t go wrong with that!    I needed a “quickie” card this week because my creation station is having a bit of a face lift.    Today some shelving will be installed over my work desk.   This will help me get organized and get some supplies off the floor!  To SHOP for any of the supplies I used for this card, just click on the word SHOP!   Thanks for stopping by!
