A bountiful harvest
My hubby took me out to dinner on Friday night to a restaurant I have been wanting to go to. It was a surprise. He just told me we had reservations for 6:30 and I didnt know where until we pulled up in front of the restaurant.
Then on Saturday night my daughter-in-law and one of my grandsons took me to another restaurant that I have been wanting to go to as well. The guys were at a golf outing so we had a birthday outing. We all really enjoyed what we had to eat. The manager even sent over an appetizer since this was our first visit to the restaurant.
So I was treated royally for my special day.
Now onto my card for today. I made this one for the color challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Vicki Dutcher was our hostess and she chose the color trio of Pumpkin, Olive and Turquoise. Since I was making a fall card, I decided to just use touches of the turquoise.
I used a cuttlebug folder & die for the pumpkin. I layered it in the spellbinders #16 die and stamped some swirls in the turquoise color.
My designer paper is from Stampin-Up’s prints collection. I used some olive satin ribbon to divide the 2 papers and added turquoise twine over the ribbon.
The sentiment is from Verve’s “bountiful harvest” set. I used 2 turquoise buttons to frame the sentiment and a turquoise swirl in the top corner. Nor sure about the swirl but it’s on the card now.
That’s my card. It's time to slose this post and call it a day in charmed life land. So until next time.....
