happy WCMD

So, how'd you celebrate World Card Making Day? Earlier today I went bowling with my DH and eldest son as a team in the Area XIII Special Olympics' Bowling For Champions program. I used to bowl on leagues with friends and my DH but that was many moons ago. Today I perfected the left gutter throw ... it was a sad sight! BUT the event's tee shirts were awesome, so that's all that matters! That, and my son had a t'riffic time!

Just before hitting the hay tonight I made this "welcome fall" card to celebrate autumn, which has arrived here in the Midwest. Tho' the trees in my yard are mainly maples, I couldn't find a maple leaf punch this evening so dug out this recent oak leaf find from the dollar stamp section at my local Mike's. This card's based on a couple challenges - the layout's based on the clean and simple FTL60 sketch challenge and the leaves are from Sharon Johnson's ssnotime106 leaves subject challenge. I stamped the leaves on the pretty indian summer DP, then cut them out and use glue dots to adhere them to the white background.

stamps: Recollections' 115465, studio g's series 20; paper: Basic Grey's indian summer DP, SU's soft suede, whisper white card stocks; ink: SU's soft suede; accessories: a muse artstamps' mini dot twinkle stickers
