Don't ya just love Fall?!

Good Sunday afternoon!  It is another beautiful fall day here in SW Missouri!!  A great day to have the windows open ( which I am loving since we have new windows in the house), and to craft your heart away.  Today I wanted to share with you a Fall Thank you card I made for a coworker of mine.  She covered for me while I was out a couple of days a few weeks back, and I wanted to thank her for it.  I had found the cute embossing folder at Hobby Lobby ( Paper Studio) and I couldn't pass it up.  It was only $5!  Not bad.  Since I don't have all the wonderful craft places in my town, I have to drive about an hour and a half to soak up all the wonderful craft goodness at Michael's and Hobby Lobby.  It probably is a good thing I don't live any closer to those places, because I would probably spend money I didn't have! Not a good thing!  Anyhoo - back to my card.  I used that embossing folder, and the patterned paper is from the 6 x 6 pad called Autumn Splendor by We R Memory Keepers.  I just love love this paper!  It has so many beautiful patterns and colors.  It has owls in it too which is quickly becoming something that I like a lot!  They are so cute!!! I adhered everything onto a piece of Hawaiian Shores c.s. by PTI.  My sentiment comes from Stampendous called Happy Messages.  I love how big and bold it is.  I added come "Candy".  These embellishments look like brads, but they take the weight and bulk out of it.  The ribbon is some "cheap" ribbon I bought at a dollar shop in Branson, Missouri. 

To add to shimmer I sprayed some Gold Perfect Pearls Mist.  I Love this stuff too!!  I hope you like as much as I do!

I want to remind everyone to leave your comments on this post to enter your chance to win a $30 dollar gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp by Friday November 4th to celebrate my one year BLOGanniversary!  Don't miss your chance!!
