Falling For You


It wasn't as grey and rainy as I hoped it would be today - just really humid.  Yuck.  Hopefully once TS Maria goes by tomorrow the humidity will lift. I managed to get into the Craft Cave for a bit this afternoon and put together a card for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge - a fall themed card using paper piecing.  I think SU's Cajun Craze is a perfect fall colour and goes really well with the Basic Grey papers.  Short and sweet for now.  I'll be back a bit later with another challenge card!      
Supplies Used:


Cardstock:  (Cajun Craze) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Mandarin & Citrus from Ambrosia collection) Basic Grey
Stamps:  (Leaf from When I Am With You - Aug 2010 KOM) Unity Stamp Co, (Letters from Smitty's ABCs) Lawn Fawn
Ink:  (Chocolate Chip, Early Espresso) Stampin' Up
Embroidery Floss:  Janlyn

I love love love the fall card with the stitching! Did you use a Sew Easy tool or did you just free hand the stitches? Either way, you did a great job!

P.S. Yeah, I'm keeping the e-collar on RJ until he's completely healed and the scab falls off. I guess I'm being over cautious, but better safe than sorry!
