Good Morning Friends!

It's early Saturday morning here in Central Illinois and I'm HAPPY to say, "It is raining!!!!!" It's been so hot and dry that I am truly thankful for this. My prayer however is that it will stop by about 3:00 p.m. so we can still have a family picnic that is planned for this evening.

I want to share a beautiful, fall leaf card I made last week. I know it's mid-summer - with temperatures holding steady now in the mid 90's here - but I am DREAMING of AUTUMN.  I know I am not the only one either. My son is on the count-down for deer hunting season to begin (October 1st) and one of my nieces posted a similar sentiment on facebook yesterday.

I had fun making this card using Starform Peels from Elizabeth Craft Designs. There are so many different designs and techniques - it's very addicting - and EASY!!!!!

For this card I simply used the outline portion of a peel and placed it on a light rose red designer paper and cut around the ouline. For the 2nd leaf, I used the leftover "innards" from the same peel and carefully cut around the shape left by the outline peel to create a 2nd outline. I then temporarily adhered it to a piece of transfer paper (also available through Elizabeth Craft Designs), transferred it to a piece of purple designer paper, and cut it out.

I added some gold thread, a couple of brads, and some gold ink around the die-cut rectangle to finish.
Like I said, very EASY!!!!

Thanks for visiting with me today -
Until Next Time -
Happy Stamping!
