Today's card was born out of a whim to make an autumn card.
And once it was made, I decided to handwrite a poem into it. Fall, I found is a season where many poems had a melancholy tone, so I was very delighted with this poem ' October's Party ' for its simple delightful touch - and here's my card [now on its way to a friend]!
It's a simple card, but I was inspired towards it by a custom made envelope
I had hanging around for at least a year....this one,
spellbinder nesting dies, handcut tag, button
I glittered the bird with coppery glitter which is hard to see here but it looks
really pretty! I encourage you to try to handwrite a poem inside your cards --
keep in mind that if you go slow and try to make consistent - looking letters,
it will all look just fine in the end because what else matters than the
fact you took the effort and time to make a handmade card and send it to
the lucky recipient!
Well, till next post, and enjoy our FALL, its such a wonderful season :)

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came—
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
The Chestnuts came in yellow,
The Oaks in crimson dressed;
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best;
All balanced to their partners,
And gaily fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New fallen from the sky.
Then, in the rustic hollow,
At hide-and-seek they played,
The party closed at sundown,
And everybody stayed.
Professor Wind played louder;
They flew along the ground;
And then the party ended
In jolly "hands around."
