Quiet Waters...

What a gorgeous day it has been in Branson, Mo. The leaves are falling like snow in the breeze, and I was inspired to get this stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs out of my box and ink it up. I love this set. The image has such a peaceful, serene feel to it.


I have to admit that I have never entered a challenge at ODBD, due to being one great big scaredy cat.

Talk about talent!

Those ladies rock it outa the park BIG-time!


Imagine my surprise when I saw that:

a)their challenge this week was to use leaves on our project, and
b) I had just finished making a step card with this set, and lo and behold,
there was a tutorial on these step cards on the ODBD blog.


So... all things considered, I think that I am meant to enter this card in that challenge.
Funny how things all work out sometimes!
I am still a great big scaredy cat, but I'm entering anyway - wahoo for me!


I am entering this card here:

Our Daily Bread: Use leaves on cards
Stamp Man: Autumn
Charisma Cardz: Autumn Colors (oops - just missed this one-challenge closed)
Tuesday Taggers: More than 2 legs


Dear Dog thinks we need to take a walk, so off I go!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful evening!

Patti J.

I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, and this gorgeous card had a mind of it's own! Funny, I get a bit scared too when I enter a new place, like SSC! Wink! My Jessie Girl has been extra lovey this week. She needs extra pets and walkies! Must be the Fall air.
