CASology – Leaf

I have tried today to use my time for mostly creative pursuits, since we have 3 days left of the sleepover, after which we will pick up in earnest with lessons again next Wednesday.  Lessons will be much more involved as we begin a new curriculum for each of the two grade levels, and with twins for one of those levels, I anticipate being BUSY.  So I’ve tried to fill a bit of my time this week with some creative fun for me.

Today’s card is for the CASology #14 challenge, on a theme of LEAF.

I went straight for my Harvest Berries stamps and dies and also my Ocean Tides ink.  I haven’t used anything Ocean Tides in a while, which is sad because I just love that color, especially with cream and brown.  So that’s what you have here!

I also used my new Oatmeal cardstock from Wplus9, and I really like it.  Filled in with some gems here and there, and a little wrap of twine at the bottom.

Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
