Magnificent Maple

This year has flown by so fast.  I can't believe Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  We made this card last month at my October Stamp Camp.  It's one my favorite cards.  I loved working with the burlap ribbon.  You will see it used several times over the next few days as I try to get caught up with my posting.

Daisies at Sunset

Another quick post until I get caught up.  Melissa Banbury used a brayer to create her card.  Since I only have one brayer, I thought I would try sponging the colors.  I believe it turned out nicely and my customers voted it as their favorite from my July Stamp Camp.    I am really wondering how I have survived all these years of cardmaking without the Oval Framelit dies.  Love em!
