Gather Blessings Along the Way Woodland Card

Gather Blessings Along the Way Woodland Card with Really Reasonable Ribbon

RRRBadge

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Here we are at the end of September, and fall is finally here!  I love the colors and textures of autumn, don’t you?  This is a time of year when many of us focus our thoughts on gratitude for all the good things that surround us.  With that in mind, I worked up this richly hued Gather Blessings Along the Way card.

Mr. Squirrel is certainly busy gathering blessings! The woodland feel of these papers and images (Authentique /Harvest Collection) prompted me to add lots of texture to the composition of this card.

Burlap ribbon is a great choice for a belly band.  (the burlap wired edge ribbon I used here has been discontinued…but antique gold netting or brown netting would make a great substitute!)  A row of Debra Crochet Lace above and below adds wonderful texture and a great vintage feel.

Bodacious Bows!

I’m curious…do any of you keep a gratitude journal where you can gather blessings along the way?  One sits on my nightstand, and I try to write in a few things each night before I fall asleep.  It makes for sweet dreams!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

    Oh, I love that little squirrel! Or as I call them squirrellies, the arch enemies of Tim, my best furry friend and top notch, anything that moves is worth chasing, terrier mix. When I saw your card, I laughed out loud because we have lots of squirrellies around here and I just can’t seem to get away from them! LOL It’s a lovely autumn card with a great interior and thanks for the extra laugh this morning with my English Breakfast.
    Hugs,
    Kris
