Autumn Leaves Card

It is that day of the week again and I am very happy.
This week has been intense because so many things have happened. I came back to work from a short vacation and there is a lot to do at the office... OMG!  But that's good, you know.  I have a job.. and I love what I do... even though it can be very stressful.  I've been also dealing with an allergy I got during vacation... must have been the combination of the sun and a body mist I used the first day... The allergy was all over my body but I specially worried about my eyes.  I can say today they look a lot better and the itching has decreased but they were very red, itchy and wrinkled.  Such is life!
And I feel I've been missed... some coworkers have come to my office to tell me so.  And some have come for advice.  I've felt people appreciate my words.  And I've felt God has helped me express words that can be relief for others.  It's a good feeling.  Thank you God.
And enough of the "feelings"... Let me show you a card I made a while ago and it was published in the recent issue of the "Papeles y Más" magazine.




I cut some leaves with the Cricut machine, embossed with the Cuttlebug, inked and arranges as they were falling.  Used a sentiment stamp from Unity Stamp Co. (I really love Unity Stamp Co... It seems that I'm always talking about them... they are not paying me, I swear... It's just love!).

I loved the result and now that it has been published I can share it with you.  Hope you like it too... and please leave a comment telling me how was your week... 

I'm going to link this post to the Friday's Friends with Flair at Unity... so you commenting will also give you the opportunity to win some goodies... Wooo hooo!!!!

Have a great weekend... Halloween coming (OMG I need to get my costume soon...).

Love the leaves, Myra. What cartridge did use to create your leaves? Nice touch with the sequins. I am still trying to figure out how to use them in my card designs.

Scrapper Myra said...

Cartridge was Stretch Your Imagination. And the sequins? Oh my friend I started to use sequins far before they were in. They go with everything. I love the touch they give to each project.
