It's a happy day

It's a happy day! Yes indeed cause it's Friday and I don't have to work my part time job this weekend. Whoo hoo! 
 
Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by, Gladys here and I have this fall card to share with you today. My neighborhood is full of maple trees and everyday the leaves turn into a bright red color. I just love it! I didn't get to experience the seasons growing up because I lived in Hawaii which was not bad at all. =) But as much as I love the warm sunny weather I also enjoy the cooler temperature and fall colors. 
 
I built a simple scene for this card with two critters from Lawn Fawn Jump for Joy stamp set. I also added a few dies from My Favorite Things.
 
For my background I blended pine needles, evergreen bough, cracked pistachio and squeezed lemonade distress inks. I die cut the trees and distressed it with aged mahogany, abandoned coral, fossilized amber and rusty hinge. The branches and fence were die cut from brown cardstock. I stamped the critters, leaves, and rake in Memento tuxedo black and colored them with copic markers. I then die cut them using the coordinating dies. Once I assembled the card I forgot about the sentiment but not a big deal because the stamp set came with smaller words. When I stamp sentiments I have to use my MISTI tool to make sure that it's lined up perfectly. I don't know how I lived without this tool for so long it's incredible, pun intended! I hope you like this card and enjoying the fall colors in your neighborhood.
Be sure to check out the shop for the latest release from all your favorite companies. There are so many holiday products it's so hard to choose because I want them all. Happy shopping!!
 
Have a great day, till next time!
