Fall

Hi! As most of you know I live in Las Vegas, and I know I shouldn't be complaining, but it is really unseasonably warm here. My car said 95 degrees today, arrrggghhh. The trees have not started to turn. What's going to happen is this, suddenly one day it's going to be 50 degrees or lower. We won't get to enjoy a mild fall. So instead of watching actual leaves turn I am forced to make cards that have fall leaves. That is my rant for today, thanks for letting me vent.


This card is for today SCS Color Challenge. I used a new stamp and paper we just got in for PaperAddiction. It's from October Afternoon, the line is called Weathervane. We are offering the stamp set and 2 each of 4 papers in a bundle for the discounted price of $17.15 (MSRP $21.40) As you can imagine they are going fast at that fabulous price, I have just two left (I am hardly able to get the samples done:) You guys rock!

I stamped the image with Memento ink and the leaves with SU! Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive ink. The charm is one I've had in my stash for a LONG time. This is such a fun, easy card to put together.

Thanks for stamping by!

Oh I love this card, so excited that I purchased this set now!
Many of our leaves have started turning here in NY. Now it is hazardous to walk in my backyard as not only are the leaves falling, but so are the chestnuts...ouch! :)
Scares my dog every time one falls! LOL!
Have a great day Laura!

I'm sorry you're missing fall....but I love your card!! I'd be happy to share the leaves in my front yard with you!!! I'm not looking forward to the big dump when the HUGE trees in my yard decide to unload!! lol
