today's spin on the inspiration wheel landed on one-layer card and so i decided to use some stamps from a set that i used to make this one of a kind card a few weeks back. i had so many comments on it that i wanted to try something new! the layering capabilities are so awesome, it was so much fun!

it doesn't seem like fall right now to me - especially with these 70+ degree days [i'm totally not complaining!] but the abundance of leaves in my front yard tells me otherwise. soon enough it'll be chilly and i'll probably be moaning about the snow - sooo while i'm embracing this weather, i decided to translate some of those feelings into today's card.

earlier today i was fortunate enough to join two girlfriends for lunch [while appropriately social distancing, especially considering we were the only people in the entire area of the restaurant!] and it was so, so good to sit and laugh for a couple hours. these are work friends and while i see them at work, it's never enough time to fully catch up, so i was grateful for today. i was also telling them about this project and my self-imposed rules. i even showed them the inspiration wheel which, when spun, happened to land on inside element - so that's what i'm focusing on today!

i don't know about where you live, but where i'm at in ohio - it's really starting to feel like fall weather. when i woke up this morning it was 38 degrees outside and it only got to be about 52 degrees as a high today! brrr! despite being chilly all day, i decided to channel some of the beautiful aspects of fall - the changing colors of leaves specifically - for today's handmade card.

i was pretty jazzed when the inspiration wheel landed on pattern play today - i've been itching for a reason to use coordinating patterns. one of my favorite ways to do this is to utilize 6x6 paper pads. generally speaking, the colors coordinate and often share patterns/themes that mix well together. plus, the designs are smaller than traditional 12x12 pages so they look amazing on cards!
