Hello Everyone! Sorry I missed the first day of the release; I am dealing with some pressing medical issues at the moment and I appreciate Jen's patience and understanding as I am doing my best to deal with them (isn't she the BEST?!!) But I am happy to be joining everyone for Day 2, when Jen is sharing a new fall leaves set in her unique and beautiful faux quilling style -- introducing 'Beautiful Leaves':
And Jen created purr-fectly coordinating dies for it too!
I personally am NOT a warm weather person - autumn is my favorite season, so bring on the cooler temps! Since Fall can't get here fast enough for me, I decided to use this set to make a napkin ring for a Thanksgiving table setting:
I had fun with a lot of tone-on-tone stamping with the leaves and used some of the leaves to decorate the sentiment band as well. I think the burlap cord is a nice rustic touch too, don't you?
Would you like to win a 'Beautiful Leaves' stamp set?
This set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!
