SNEAK PEEK, Falling Leaves Thankful Thoughts...

While I am away at Regional, I thought I would share my Thanksgiving swap.  This is also the swap I am using for the SUDSOL swap I am participating in today.  This card features the Gently Falling stamp set from the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog.  It is a two step stamp set, but I only used the solid portion on the focal piece.  I used the Rock & Roll Technique on most of the leaves - a favorite technique of mine for leaves.  Then I color spritzed the focus piece and finally I used Shimmer Mist on the whole surface.  It doesn't show up in the picture very well though.  On the background, I used the outline stamps with VersaMark and then embossed it with the new Stripes Embossing Folder.  Hope you enjoy it!

We made it to Charlotte!  A group of us traveled together - two other demonstrators and my daughter, Jenni.  We had a nice dinner last night at BlackFinn American Saloon.  It was tasty!  Now we are all so excited to get to the Convention Center and start our swapping.  Let the fun begin!!!
