Happy Blessings


Fall is such a wonderful time of year, I think that other than Pumpkin spice flavored coffee, and the earthy scent of cinnamon that fills your lungs every time you walk into the grocery store, my favorite thing about Fall is the abundance of rich color. Oranges creams, and reds, and my all time favorites greens,curries, and browns are gracing the storefronts and landscapes all around us! I welcome the Holiday season with open arms, and have visions of Pumpkins pies dancing in my head! {yum}


This card was made with lots of layers, stitching, and rich fall color. I used my Cricut to create this pumpkin, and leaves. The tendrils are twine, and bitty strips of paper curled up with a quilling pen { I'm sure that is not the correct name for that tool} but you get the idea! Dig out those Autumn papers, dust off your best china and trusty family cookbooks, its finally time.....fall is here!

Happy Creating~
