You're The Best

Well it is getting to what I call
'the ugly time of the year', I know not a very pleasant word.....
the leaves have mostly fallen off all the trees
and are all over the place...
the gardens are dead and the hosta's are frozen, turning their leaves yellow,
it's soggy out and we don't see much sun.
I am more then ready for Spring!

I have a card today for a man or boy using a fun silhouette die
by Tutti Designs called 'Fishing Buddies'.

Instead of using the 'normal' black for the silhouette,
I cut it from a brown/tan card stock and turned it into a more 'fallish' card.
I die cut a few fall leaves (Impression Obsession) from my scrap papers
and added a sentiment.
though the picture doesn't show it well, but all the leaves are embossed
with little 'leaf veins'.

Entering the following challenges:
Crafty Gals Corners .... Harvest Colors
The Male Room ....Silhouettes

Oh yes, I love it cut from the tan and your addition of leaves, so fallish! Makes for a very sweet card!

Whoa! Where did the comments go? LOL I had to scroll way down. Diane, this is quite a masculine, yet touching, die cut, unlike any other I've ever seen! Beautiful card, too. You can just feel the love between father and son, can't you? Fabulous card. hugs, de

That's a great die for a guy card -- anything son to father or father to son. Love the fallish look with it cut in brown and the leaves added. It's soggy here, too. Even with an 83 degree day recently it didn't dry out. We're in it for the long haul now!
