Birthday wishes for my bro...
It's free candy day!!

Coffee filters aren't just for coffee anymore...

At my monthly card club we made leaves out of coffee filters.  We die cut the images using the autumn accents dies.  We spritzed water on a paper plate, added ink drops of different colors, and put the leaves on top.  After letting them dry, we used them on a project.  I ended up with a lot of leftovers (just like Thanksgiving dinner) and decided I would use one on a card to post on the blog.  Luckily, I found the Paper Players sketch and thought I would play along. 5

I grabbed some cajun craze, crushed curry and very vanilla cardstock to spotlight the coffee filter leaf.  I ran the crushed curry through the woodgrain embossing folder, added a strip of burlap ribbon, a wooden accent (that I dragged over the crushed curry ink pad), button and linen thread.  I pulled the burlap ribbon apart and cut the extra strips of burlap in half to put under the twine and button.  A quick sentiment and I was done. 6

Can you believe that it is Halloween tomorrow?  Three months and we will be in a new year!  Crazy how time flies!

Thanks for stopping by!!
