Autumn Birthday

Hello all, I have been busy making crafts with the residents at an Assisted Living facility including the memory care unit. I made this card for one of the company bosses of my apartment complex.  I always seem to do something silly when doing a craft. Cheryl now calls my stupid moves."Draiseying it." This means you push to hard, run the adhesive off the card or like this time I adhered the entire card on backwards. I also touched the stamp to card and left a microscopic brown dot. I didn't want a smudge on the crisp cream paper so I added fallen leaves to cover it.  Remember what Tim Holz's says, "Mistakes are just another chance for embellishments."  I do these thing because I work too fast. I don't know why I rush but I do. Words to live by, when working on a project work smarter and not faster.

Thank You

So my Dad spent the last 10 days in the hospital due to an accident he had on his ATV at the cabin (yep, kids don't let your parents think they're younger than they really are).  Some of the residents at his apartment building sent a lovely get-well card to him while he was there so he asked me to make a thank you card he could post on the community bulletin board.  This is it!
