Not Enough (Fun) Hours In The Day.



Life is certainly getting in the way as of late so it would seem and has really been cramping my style a (big) bit these days.  I've been so busy with stuff...not even fun stuff to be honest.  So, I decided to post a quirky card I made last month as we were finishing up autumn here in Sydney as now winter has definitely arrived.  Brrrr.  I love the fall and the crispy, crunchy, colorful leaves and the beguiling scents of autumn as they are a wonderful reminder of my "happy place".  This card uses pretty much all Papertrey Ink gorgeousness save the leaf die cuts as they were made with The Maestro's (Tim Holtz) Tattered Leaves Alterations die using some scraps of handmade paper from my stash.   With a bit of luck I hope to have some crafting time soon.  Lord knows, I sure could use it.

Thanks for swinging by.  It certainly brings a smile to my face when you do.  Hugs.

your card is amazing! I feel like I would love to jump into a pile of those die-cut leaves :) I do hope that you get some fun crafty time soon, to take your mind off of the less fun stuff. And thank you for your sweeter than sweet comment on my blog - you put a huge smile on my face!

Oh wow..this is gorgeous!! I love autumn and it totally put me in a good mood to see this card. We're in the thick of summer in Tennessee, so it's hot and humid. Autumn here is THE best and I love love love this card as it reminds me of that time of year here. Very beautiful!

Beautiful colors on your card, Jen... they totally say autumn and make me long for weather that is less than the 90 plus degrees that we're experiencing in our North Carolina summer! Hopefully you'll get some crafting time soon!
