Happy Mail Just For You

You know, life is good even when you can't be out and about as you would like.  In the last month, I've been out of the house only twice.  But, I have a most wonderful family who shops for me and sees that I have all that I need.  I am truly blessed.

Today's card was made for the Taylored Expressions #TEMakerChallenge over on Facebook.  The objective is to use at least one of the themes for your card and at least one Taylored Expressions product.  This month's was embossing, stripes and orange.  I decided to try to use all three on my card and I think it turned out rather well.

For the embossing, I opted to dry emboss using a Tim Holtz embossing folder that has rarely been used.  I like the way it looks in the background.  It's also stripes so with one, I got two.  Love when that happens.

The card base is Candy Corn cardstock and the embossed layer is Pumpkin cardstock both from Taylored Expressions.  I have a friend who's favorite color is orange but it's one color she cannot wear as she has red hair.  So, whenever I make a card to send to her, I always include orange somewhere on the card. 

Thanks for stopping by,
