While on Vacation in Upstate Vermont in East Charleston I took a small bag of crafting supplies to w0rk on when we were in the cottage.  One of the things I came up with was the October Trail Map shown above.  Now in case you are wondering what the thing is under my card, it's a Moose Cutting Board. I thought since we were on vacation I'd use something from the cottage we were staying at for my back drop. Here is a full photo of it:

 While I didn't do detailed instructions, I took some more photos of my card as I was in the midst of creating it.  This one shows how I have the layers almost done. After you get to this part you can glue it to the base of the front of the card. Then stamp Hope, mount to the scalloped square you punched out, and place that under a bit of the butterfly you stamped the words on and cut out.  Then mount all of that to the top of your layers with glue.

 Here is how I stamped & tore the paper for the inside of the card. Also how I stamped my "hallmark image" for the back.  I ususally sign my projects NJBurk and then date with month and year.

 This last photo was taken after I got home (hence no Moose). I stamped my phrase and then signed my name.  This card will be sent to my church friend Judi as she's been having some trouble with falling recently.

We hope you will join us in creating a card with this great layout.  When you do, please let us know so we too can OOHH and AHHH!
