wreathed in fall

One of the best things about fall is all those beautiful leaves. They are always stunning here in Ontario and my children love jumping in them. Last year they turned into a photo op and this year I think we’ll have to do the same. I must admit, if I had to rake them, I probably wouldn’t love them so much. We have a lot of open space around us though and I’m very lucky that they just blow away.

The new Avocado Arts stamp set, Ho Ho’s and Holiday Blessings is the perfect set for this time of year. It’s a fun blend of fall and Christmas so you can create those Autumn cards now and also get started on your Christmas ones as well. Today I’ve focused on fall. I have another card featuring this set to share tomorrow so pop back in for a Christmas idea then.

I love the wreath stamp that comes with this set and here I’ve simply stamped it and then added on some accent leaves. They are stamped onto patterned paper (Lily Bee Stationery line) and kraft cardstock for those pretty fall colors.

Supplies: Kraft and blue cardstock by Bazzill, Stationery Line Patterned paper by Lily Bee Design, Ho Ho’s and Holiday Blessings stamp set by Avocado Arts, Jet Black Archival ink by Ranger, Sepia Archival Ink by Ranger, Wood Button by Maya Road, Sanding Block by Tim Holtz

  4. very pretty, the raffia is a great touch with it

  5. I wore a tanned leather Everest strap affixed to a Rolex GMT 116710 BLNR (Bleu/Noir bezel) that my favorite dealer, Fourtan¨¦, let me borrow for a week. Although I have worn Rolex watches for over 25 years, it was never with a leather strap, as I felt that any non-original strap did not compliment the watch. I quickly found that is not the case with the Everest leather strap. The Everest endlink looks at home with the brushed finish. Unlike wearing a stainless or rubber strap, a leather strap conforms to your wrist. After a week of wearing the Everest leather strap, the strap was working its way to fitting like a well worn work glove. Unlike silicon straps that stretch and give, they retain their basic shape. The Everest leather strap, on the other hand, has the same feeling of strength, like the stainless steel bracelet, but the lighter weight makes it disappear from your wrist. After wearing leather on a Rolex, I see why Rolex offers a leather option on some of their watches.

  6. Just as Patrick Kansa points out in aBlogtoWatch¡¯s RubberB rubber strap for Rolex, there are plenty of aftermarket options and varieties, but at quality levels that span the map. Without question, the Everest Leather Series is at a quality level complimentary to Rolex watches in materials, machining tolerances, and leather selection. In Everest¡¯s first offering, straps will be available in saddle brown, vintage brown and black calf leather, as well as in black and brown crocodile to match the watch face, bezel, and your mood. Everest plans to offer shell cordovan straps in the very near future as well.
