Autumn Blessings

TGIF!

There's just something about Fridays isn't there? Doesn't matter that I'm working both today and tomorrow, it still feels good to get to the end of another week. Maybe part of it is that I'm finally feeling myself again after that awful cold. Getting sick really sidelined me and I wasn't able to get a bunch of stuff done that I wanted to this past week. So now I have Sunday to look forward to playing a little catch up on. :)

Today I've got another card to share from the Thanksgiving themed Special November release over at Some Odd Girl. This one features the sweetest little indian maid to attend that first Thanksgiving feast... Indian Tia! When I sat down to make my cards for this mini release I chose to work with a single paper pad for all three because I wanted them to all coordinate with each other, kind of like a little card set. I went with the new We R Autumn Splendor 6x6 pad and as soon as I came across this cool tree trunk print I new I had to pair it up with Tia. They remind me of paper birch trees, which I'm rather fond of because I can still remember climbing up into the giant paper birch in the yard as a kid and tapping on the knots aka 'doors' looking for fairies... but I digress. Because I didn't want to lose the look of Tia standing amongst the trees, I kept the design very CAS with minimal embellishing. This is why I love pretty papers folks! ;)

Well, I should take off... have a great weekend everybody!

Awww this has catapulted me right back to when I was 2 years of age, watching Cowboy and Indian films and I used to ask my wee Mamma to do my hair like an "Enteen"! Now, I know there is no such word, but for some reason I couldnt say Indian!! Hey....I was only 2 you know! lol. So I called the girls Indians "Enteens"! And the hair do I wanted was the very same one as this beautiful image. I was a bit of a daft child....but then, nothing much has changed!! Love this card Amy. Lee xx
