Hi stamping friends and thank God it is Friday. For this being a short work week it sure was long. I had the strangest thing happen to me yesterday. I had to work all week this week which is rare but with needing 3 new tires since August 1st I need the money. I was feeling fine yesterday but all of a sudden I felt really bad and ran to the bathroom thinking I was going to puke. I couldn't so came back up to the front of the store and then it came again and I ended up running over to the big garbage container and puked my guts out. Yes real nice puking my guts out as people are coming in and out of the store. I don't know what it was but I ended up comping home by 1:30 and came home and put my PJ's on and I went to bed. I slept for a while and of course didn't have any 7-UP or crackers here so didn't have much. I felt better though when I got up and then I knew I had ground beef that I wanted to make some stuffed peppers with and make some taco meat with the rest of it. I did get that done last night and ended up eating a small one late last night. I felt better and went to work and surprised every one that was there yesterday as they thought I must really be sick. I sure am not sure what it was but I am over it. I went to my BFF's to pick up tomatoes but they all aren't ripe so I can make for more salsa and stewed tomatoes.
So on to my card. I used the Wonderfall Stamp set for the leaves and the greeting is from the Day of Gratitude stamp set. My layout is from the the Sketchbook Saturday Challenge. My base card stock is Cajun Craze and Naturals Ivory. I used the Orchard Harvest DSP and used Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, Raspberry Ripple for the colors of my leaves and then textured each one with almost matching embossing folders. They were Perfect Polka Dots, Woodgrain, and the Square Lattice Embossing Folders.
Here are the details:
