Maricopa is a community just south of Phoenix, AZ partially surrounded by raw desert and American Indian tribal land where wild horses still roam free and John Wayne worked his sprawling Red River Ranch and Cattle Company in bygone days. My husband photographed this horse sculpture near our subdivision’s entrance.

Happy Fall Card
I'm still not sure I like this, but I'm trying to use supplies I've had for a long time. The CS is Stampin' Up's
Close to Cocoa; the maple leaf is a Sizzix die embossed on a yellow scrap of Costco double-sided paper & mounted to a cranberry scrap. I lightly sanded the leaf and used my EK Success corner punch to mount it to the cranberry piece. Since I didn't have a stamp or letters small enough, I typed the vertical phrase on my computer in brown letters, printed it out, used re-positionable tape to mount another mustard piece over the letters and reprinted the phrase. To attach the metal leaf brads to the twill tape, I just cut tiny slits in the tape.
