Grateful for You

Here's the next post in my Turning a New Leaf series. Have I mentioned how much I love this set? Yes? Well, not enough yet.


Today's card uses the largest leaf branch in the set. Let's stop for a minute and sigh in delight at the graceful curves of it. All together now: Sigh. So pretty.

I stamped the branch in Versacolor khaki ink first. Then I stamped three circles of a very light magnolia ink on a scrap of white paper. I stamped three much smaller circles of topaz ink on the magnolia circles, and then punched the flowers out so the topaz circles were centered in the flower.

I just love how the off-white flowers look with the white background paper!! What a great way to get a punched shape in just the right color you need. Works great if you have a bazillion ink pads like I do.

The sentiment is stamped in topaz and is from Signature Greetings, Dawn McVey's new set at PTI. Let's have another collective, happy sigh, shall we? Sigh.

This color combo was so fresh and fun to play with after what seems like MONTHS of red and green and snowflake blue. Oh, yeah, it HAS been months. But I'm not tired of Christmas. Thank goodness, 'cause I am not done with it yet.

Have a blessed Sunday, folks! If you celebrate Advent, you might enjoy hopping over to Questioning my Intelligence. I'm posting a few Advent devotionals there during the next month.
