More Lovely Leaves for the Curtain Call Challenge!

 
I have three aunts who live up in Washington and I try to send them a card every couple of months...so I thought I would go ahead and make all "leaf" cards for them!
 
The Stamps used are MFT:  Fall Foliage for both cards
the sentiment for the first card is from PTI Keep it Simple:  Thinking of YOU
The top card has a little glossy accents on the red berries and lots of clear Wink of Stella on the leaves and acorns!!  Very sparkly in real life!!
 
I will take the time to write out a nice long letter to each of them and let them know what is going on in my life and with my children and grandchildren.  They love getting these cards I make and I sure love being able to send them a card and give them a smile.
The aunts are 95, 92 and 91! 
Have a great week!
Heart Hugs!

  3. Colleen...both of your cards are amazing. I love those falls colors and am really ready for the weather to change to cool and brisk. Just beautiful. I love your idea of heading this way with Linda next summer, maybe we could meet half way or something. Just imagine the fun we would all have!
