Thanks So Very Much

Hi!!  I have a quick post for today!  I wanted to share a fall card I made last week.


I don't know what it is about hanging things from trees or making them look like they are falling from trees (however you interpret it) but I LOVE to do that!!   That little tiny acorn is from PTI's set "Autumn Acorns".  Ok, this is such a sweet little set.  I ADORE the fonts and sentiments in the set too (although I didn't use them here).


That cute little sentiment that I LOVE is from Verve.  Cute. Cute. Cute.  And of course that delicious twine is from The Twinery!  For the button I used the back side of PTI's wood buttons (which are now discontinued...boo!!) and it added a nice woodsy/nature accent to the card.  Of course I also ran the entire front of the card through the die cut machine with the linen impression plate...but that doesn't surprise you does it? :)

So, can I share something personal with you?  This has been an "emotional" week so far, mixed with the good and the bad.  But, through it all, the voice of God has been there reminding me that He is here.  That HE is in control.  That I can trust Him.  That I can lean on Him.  That I can hope in Him.  That reminds me of a song that I have had in my head all afternoon now and I just can't keep it to myself.  So, if you would like to hear an uplifting message, click below!


THANK YOU for stopping by!! Have a blessed and uplifting week full of the wonder of the Lord!

  6. Jen, I'm so sorry you've had a bad week so far. I'll call you tomorrow! LOVE that one single little acorn falling from the branch. What are we going to do without those wood buttons when we run out? Love that you flipped it over and used the back side!
