HSS344 Thanks

Happy Saturday, peeps!  And happy August!  We had a rainy day yesterday and I was really, really lazy, LOL!  I did manage to get one card made for the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge:

I needed a thank you card, and was anxious to use some of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP, so here's what I created:

After choosing my papers, I cut and adhered them to a Very Vanilla card base and embossed the "thank you" from Beautiful Autumn on a piece of Early Espresso.  The embossing is a challenge to see; here's a "tilted" hindsight, I think I should have done this on a piece of Crumb Cake, but it's already in the mail!  Maybe I'll do a retake!

I diecut it with a Tasteful Labels Die and popped up a little gathering of foliage on a circle above it:

I used images from Forever Fern and Beautiful Autumn as well as dies from Christmas Cardinal and Forever Flourishing to create my sprigs, and tied them all together with some Linen Thread.  I love these colors together and the papers, with their gold accents, are just beautiful!  Thanks for popping in today!

I do have more birthday cards to share, but I'll share just one today; this one was from Cassidy.  She made it at home (apparently there are some leftover craft supplies from Wayne's stepdaughter still there!) and Wayne told her to put some thought into it, so here it is:

The front flap:

another flap:

and two "arms" that fold inward to give me a hug!  Isn't that cute!!  I will treasure this one!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Not a mistake, LeAnne! I love the deep brown of that espresso as it draws the tiny ferns from your dsp so beautifully!
Cassidy's card is definitely a keeper!

Cassidy's card is definitely a keeper, LeAnne! It's the sweetest! Love the mix of papers and gilding on your thank you card!

I, too, love the EE with the gold. What a great card from your special granddaughter. She has a birthday coming up, doesn't she?

Awww that is a really special card from Miss Cassidy! I'm sure you will treasure that one for years to come! I can't tell you how much I love this Fall card! Isn't that DSP beautiful? I have already used a bunch on some Thanksgiving treats! I love the prints and of course, the foil that is in it! Great job!
