wheelbarrow of leaves





Enjoyed doing this card....paper pieced the wheelbarrow and filled it full of leaves!  liked my clouds,,,,even kinda liked using the Top Note die with the nestie...all is going well, right?
all done, walk my new little card out to show DH....whose only response is (with that look that I've done something really stupid)

"Why are you giving them a wheelbarrow full of leaves?"

and he's right!   why! why! why! did I use that sentiment...now I look at it and bust out laughin'...guess I'll save it for the neighbor who doesn't rake his leaves..or maybe the one that gets every leaf!! oh well, it is what it is!   LOL

Stamps:  Gina K's Autumn Beauty by Theresa Momber
Paper:  BM's Rhythm, Gina's freebie, SU caramel, white and bordering blue
Ink:  Memento Black, Vivid Coffee Bean
Colored with Copics
Embellishment: leaf button fr button stash, SU Top Note, Nestie
Technique:  paper piecing, Cuttlebug, matting

it is actually 3am!  guess who will not be awake tomorrow...so while I'm sleeping
you have a blessed day, lol


ps ... I know (light bulb moment) - I will stamp "Happy fall y'all" on a nestie, and cover it up!!!
now to crash  :))

Hi Linda,
It is a beautiful card with gorgeous autumn colours. The wheelbarrow and leaves are so well done. I don't see that the sentiment is inappropriate - it really depends what is said on the inside of the card.
Hugs,

Leave it to a DH. I love your card. Cut out a couple of pumpkins and stick in there and show it to him. It is a beautiful card.

Linda, you are a riot! Glad you are getting some sleep!! This card is beautiful and the colors are perfect! Got any pumpkins to go with those leaves?!?! Have a blessed weekend, my friend!

Jennie said...

Linda, your dh is so funny. I showed it to my dh and he said, "that man has a lot of wisdom"....HA! I like the leaves in the wheelbarrow and think someone was raking up leaves which is such an autumn activity. I say give it to one of your neighbors...I know they "got leaves" :oP

Beautiful coloring on the leaves by the way and love the paper pieced wheelbarrow.
