Thankful for You

Hello.  I hope you had a great weekend!

Our leaves are turning to their bright, beautiful colors and falling fast.

Hopefully this leaf won't fall.


I wish I could have captured the gleam of the gold that borders the embossed sentiment.

The leaf was die cut from a snippet of watercolor paper and colored 
with re-inkers and my Aqua Painter.

I used this leaf embossing folder that I had used at a friend's house.  I have
since found one and was excited to add it to my collection.

When the leaf was dry, I dry embossed it with another embossing folder.

Lots of texture and shine on this card!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Your leaf is so vibrant against the white and tied with the gold twine - the white embossed leaves are a lovely background for it! Julia xx

Bonnie, this is GORGEOUS! This is one of those cards I'd definitely want to case! It's so crisp and clean and that beautiful red leaf just makes it! Love this one!

Beautiful leaf! The gold twine really sets it off, and I can see why you bought the leaf ef - it's a lovely one. You say your leaves are turning now - lucky you having a longer summer / later fall than us. Our leaves turned ages ago and are all down - it feels like fall is over!

Love your autumn leaf, Bonnie. Don't you just love this time of year when the leaves turn??!! If only they'd rake themselves up. :) Gorgeous background, no wonder you went and bought the folder. xx

What an absolute STUNNER you have here Bonnie. Love the embossing - something I haven't used enough of lately. That leaf and the touches of gold are perfection. Simplicity at it's best.
