Whew, fall came fast this year! Not that I mind all that much. Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. I love to put on sweaters and comfy slippers on these cool, crisp mornings, and I love any excuse to curl up with a good book and a cup of hot cocoa in hand. Most of all, though, I love to take in the beauty of the colorful, changing leaves. Thus, my inspiration for this week’s Place Card of the Week.
I knew I wanted to create something with a leaf pattern, but I wanted it to actually look somewhat like a real leaf, so late last night, I ran outside and gathered a few “real” leaves and used them to trace onto paper. Sometimes, the best resources for crafting are right outside my door.
I was toying around with the idea of making matching cupcake toppers? What do you think, gang? Yes? No?
In other news, you may (or may not) have noticed that I was out of commission last week. I spent a few days on vacation in Tampa, Florida with one of my best friends. I hope to share some pictures of my trip with you all soon. It was in the 90’s and sunny everyday! I typically prefer a little bit cooler weather, but it was peeeeeeeeeeerfect for reading by the pool and just relaxing. I am officially a well-rested, happy camper!
Have a wonderful day!
