Take a Break and Enjoy Life

The sun will keep on rising and setting
whether we fill our days with
worry or joy!

"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, 
for tomorrow will worry about itself. 
Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Matthew 6:34

Fall Blessings

I saw an idea in a Craft magazine to use leaves in 
layers to create a card, so thought I would give it
a try for a Fall Blessing card!

Do you recognize the red grid piece on the card?
It's from a potato sack!  When I was cooking one day,
I noticed the amazing texture and pattern and knew
it would be perfect for this card!  Try it out!

Patterned Paper:  Die Cuts with a View
Basic Card Stock
Leaves from dollar store pack
Glitter leaves from dollar store pack
Embellishments:  tags, gems & jute twine

If you print your own pictures like I do, then you know you
usually have some left over picture paper on the sheet

I don't throw anything away, so I found these left over pieces are
perfect for the inside of cards, especially if they are from the
Post-it-Note paper which just sticks right on.

May you have a beautiful Fall and see God in all the beauty around you!
Many Blessings!
