The Card Concept #40

Today, I have three cards to share that I made for 

I love these sweet stuffs on the wood panelled wall!
I dug through my stash of patterned paper scraps and found
a piece of My Mind's Eye woodgrain that seemed perfect --
and there was enough to make three cards!

For all three, I used PTI's Twig Wreath.
For the first two, I used PTI's Hey Foxy.

For my first card, I decorated the wreath with the berries from the Twig Wreath set.
The sentiment is from Studio Calico's Grateful Blessings stamp set.

On this card, I decorated the card with leaves from Twig Wreath
and stamped my sentiment from PTI's KIS: Thanks.

On both of these cards, I coloured in the fox by pressing some terracotta tile ink
onto my acrylic block, adding some water and painting them in with a paint brush.

On my last card, I stamped the squirrel from SC's Grateful Blessings stamp set.

Isn't he adorable?
The sprigs, acorn and sentiment are all from the SC Grateful Blessings stamp set, too.

Before you go, I had been asked recently by two people to feature my cards.
The first was Michele of the Craftsy, who has a bunch
of Halloween inspiration up on their blog today, including a card
I made for the September Reverse Confetti Release.
And the second was Lena Johansen who asked to feature
one of my cards on The Paper Crafting.

Thanks for looking!
