One Card Wonder Wednesday, August 14, 2019


I am so excited for another One Card Wonder Wednesday.  Every week that brings us closer to Autumn makes me happy.  I grew up in Michigan and will always be a Michigan girl at heart.  Even though I now live in Florida, Autumn is still my favorite time of the year.  I have one tree, a Japanese Maple that turns a deep shade of red.  It is one of the highlights of my year...fall color in Florida.  I can honestly say that is what I miss most about Michigan.  The crisp Autumn air, leaves in ever changing hues, sweaters and hot cocoa.  The thought of this just brings a feeling of comfort to me.  Oh, how I miss walking in the crisp Autumn air.

Do you love Autumn as much as I do?  Then you will love today's Project.  I have incorporated three stamp sets from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, Ride With Me, Waterfront, and Winter Woods.  I didn't want the truck to just be floating on the card, I needed some dirt for the Truck to be parked on.   So the Waterfront stamp set provided that.  I love how the trees stamped in the background make the card complete.  Without them, the card just looked too bare.  I needed a filler and the Winter Woods stamp set came to mind.  What is better than bare trees in the background to highlight an Autumn pumpkin picking!

The truck in the Ride With Me Bundle is so reminiscent of trucks from years gone by.  I fell in love with it the instant I saw the set.  Having various sentiments and contents for the back of the pickup truck make this set extremely versatile.  Who doesn't love a vintage truck?
