Leaves of Gratitude

On the day I write this, we're experiencing hotter than normal temps where I live.  It was 90 degrees (F) today, and will be the next two days.  Sure doesn't feel like a real Autumn yet!  It is in my mind, just not outside my door.  :D

Here's a real Fall-like card to share, using new-to-me My Favorite Things stamps:  Thankful Leaves.  I trimmed them by hand, those leaves, since I do not own a Silhouette machine.  Ahh, someday.

The Houndstooth background stamp is by the now-closed Market Street Stamps.  I miss them and their awesome background designs!


How's the weather where you live?



Stamps:  Thankful Leaves - My Favorite Things; Houndstooth - Market Street Stamps Paper: white - PTI Ink: Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip - SU; Versafine Onyx Black- Tsukineko Fibers: twine - Creative Impressions Accessories & Tools: Ribbon Banner die - Spellbinders

Hello Colleen!! Your card is super elegant! Love the contrasting leaves on the pale BG...

Here in India it's supposed to be monsoon but it's hotter than it is same as it was in summer! :(

I don't own a Silhoutte either nor do I have room for another machine even though I hear it does amazing things! I love love your pretty fall leaves! Yes it was in the 90's here too, but I love it! :-)))

Lots of great fussy cutting on the lovely leaves! Such a pretty fall card, Colleen! It was hot here the other day, but now it's chilly! I do welcome the cooler temps! Have a great weekend, hugs!

What a pretty fall card! Those colors look great against the herringbone!

Your leaves are so perfectly trimmed they appear to be die cut. Love how the sentiment fits in the banner die, and your soft sponging of the banner, the angled placement in the lower corner, the houndstooth, color choices -- all come together beautifully!

Oooo that is so pretty. I love that hounds-tooth background. It makes me think of walks in the forest wrapped in warm cozy sweaters, socks, and boots. This definitely puts me in the mood for fall. Just beautiful!
Bear Hugs,
Carol
