One-Layer Wednesday (OLW105) Autumn

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Here's a fun fact; In the United States, actually the entire northern hemisphere (we can't forget our Canadian friends), the first day of autumn is the day of the year in which the sun crosses the celestial equator moving south. This day is called the Autumnal Equinox, and this year it's September 22.

So, with autumn just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to see what you love about this time of year. For me, it’s pumpkins! I love pumpkin pie, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin fudge, and pumpkin bread. Really, all things pumpkin. 

I also enjoy the beautiful colors of the changing leaves.

Both cards are 3 inches square.  If you've followed my blog for long, you know I love this little size.  They're great for gift giving this time of year, but my favorite thing to do is tuck them in the girl's backpacks.  It's a fun little "love note" from mom, letting them know how special they are!  I like to have an assortment of these little cards on hand.  They always come in handy.

OLW105 Rules

1. A ONE-LAYER card is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers allowed!

2. Make a card that expresses what you love about autumn/fall.

3. Post your card somewhere online and link back to A Paperie Journey using the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. Please make sure you link to the specific post on your blog rather than your blog's main page.

4. Have Fun!

Don't forget about the Gratitude Campaign! See Susan's blog for details.

One-Layer Wednesday (OLW104) Gratitude

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

This week Susan is hosting the OLW Challenge, and she has incorporated the theme into her "Gratitude Campaign". 

When I first read about the Gratitude Campaign on Susan's blog last year, I remember thinking "what a wonderful idea"!  Expressing gratutude is something I need to do more often.

To read about the Gratitude Campaign from Susan herself, click here

After reading the sentiment on my card, you probably think I don't know the difference between Love and Gratitude.  I really do....  This  card is for a certain someone, and the handwritten message inside will express my gratitude. It's a fine line, I know ( I hope the OLW Patrol isn't watching)!

I plan to post another card later in the week, using a more appropriate gratitude sentiment.  This wonderful campaign of Susan's needs to be promoted.    Like she said " It's way more fun than politics and nicer too"!

I hope you'll think about sending a few cards out this year, to people in your life that you are grateful for.

I am also linking this card to Less is More.  This week their challenge is a One-Layer card with Foliage.  How perfect is that?

Here's my card:
This card is 4 1/4 square.  My plan was to use my sentiment to ground the image. I think I missed the mark!  Do I hear "re-do"?
