Harvest Blessings

Hubs and I celebrated our 5th anniversary on Saturday. We spent the morning at the beach with the kids and then had a nice dinner out and a movie. Nice to have time just the two of us. I think the last time we went to a movie together was just May 2011, just before Lucia was born. 

I made him a card. He's a farmer agricultrualist so I thought the tractor image from Harvest Blessings was quite fitting. The sentiment seemed to fit our family as well. 

I'm loving the woodgrain embossing folder and after seeing SO many amazing samples using the Core'dinations paper in the mini, I think I'm gonna have to get me somma that! It's nice stuff!

I stamped the image in Black StazOn and coloured it in with an Aquapainter and ink pad lids. I coloured the sentiment direct to stamp with markers and stamped. I pierced the woodgrain embossed early espresso with my paper piercing tool and then threaded linen thread through using a needle. I tied it in the back. It's hard to see but the main circle is mounted using dimensionals. Hubs was impressed, but not to the extent I was looking for. Cards don't excite him that much.

We recently went on family vacation to my hometown on the Sunshine Coast, BC. Here's our only family pic from the trip:
If you're from British Columbia - HAPPY BC DAY! 
Have a great week!

  1. Great job! I really thought of you guys when I saw that stamp set. One touch I REALLY like are the stitches at the top left. Original and very cool!
