Beautiful moments

 I loved that sentiment, Autumn is my favorite time of the year but we all need to take out time each day and collect all the beautiful moments of the day.

We have been away for a few days, we went back to Michigan to see family, it has been a year and it was much needed, we only saw most of our siblings but that was so good to have that time with them.  On the way home we decided to stop by a park in Indiana not to far off of our route but oh my this park was so big that we ended up staying over night to get the full experience.  I will have to say traveling with Covid is not as enjoyable as the past but it is doable.  I am still very far behind on my commenting on your blogs, so I will be playing catch up over the next few days.

I had fun playing with all these dies and coloring them to make a little arrangement! The background was an embossed watercolor piece that I mixed some inks on my mat and dragged the piece through, really liked how it turned out.



Spectrum noir watercolor embossed watercolor papers - To the moon & back, watering down inks for the coloring of the paper
Distress inks - Carved pumpkin, Fired brick and peeled paint
Spellbinders - Decorative Labels 28 die
Tim Holtz - Funky Florals #3 dies and Small talk stickers sentiment




Wishing you a wonderful weekend! 
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Connie

Pleased that you were able to get away, it's not easy in these Covid times is it.

A lovely card.

I am loving this 'inking' technique you have been using for the backgrounds of late, Connie. Another lovely Autumn card. Fabulous you could get out and about and visit family, and enjoy the autumnal landscape and all the beauty surrounding you. I would imagine covid is making travelling difficult there, but as you say, it is doable with all the proper and safe precautions. Have a beautiful day.
