Nuts!

I joined a swap where the theme was nuts. Then I immediately panicked because I couldn't think of anything I had with nuts (ridiculous, I have plenty of stamps with acorns, peanuts and even some mixed nuts).

Then I found these acorn brads and knew I had to use one of them. After lots of trial and error I came with up combining the nut with some of these fake leaves that are the rage every fall. I kind of like how this turned out.

The Fine Print: Autumn greeting by A Muse Studio, designer paper by Club Scrap, faux leaves from Michaels and acorn brad from the Eyelet Outlet (who are all about brads these days, don't look.... now don't blame me for the hit on your pocketbook, I warned you).

The winner of the Nine Lives cat set from the Cat Lovers Hop was MandySea from Australia.

The acorn brad looks great on this colorful leaf, and love the blaze of color against that spots background too. I'm awed that you not only remembered you had these brads, but were able to find them too! Morphed into a fabulous card as well! TFS
