Autumn-Themed Cards

Hello everyone!  I've been wanting to play in a card challenge, and I was intrigued by the Tic Tac Toe challenge #104.  I picked the bottom row, which features birthday, coloring & yellow.  I put together an autumn-themed birthday card, with a birthday sentiment inside.  Sometimes I like the simplicity of  'for you' on the front of a clean and simple card.

Stampin' Up! Lovely As A Tree oak leaves stamp, patterned papers; Inspired By Stamping Fancy Label 18 frame stamp; Spellbinders Labels 18 die; yellow clear enamel dots; Copic markers 

And while I was in an autumn mood, I went a little crazy and crafted up all kinds of things with leaves.  LOL

Hope you and your loved ones are doing well.  My husband has been busy repainting our living room, going from a beige that I am tired of, to a pale warm gray.  The woodwork is white, we keep that standard throughout the house.  I'll try to remember to share a pic or two here when it's all finished.  

One of my teeth fell two Fridays ago (a crown with post) while I was eating.  Ugh.  And of course, it was a Friday, so I needed to wait the weekend to have the problem addressed.  I went to a new-to-me dentist office that was highly recommended, and on Monday morning, lo and behold, my tooth that had been given a root canal, where the crown had been, was yanked.  Thankful for nitrous oxide.  I am now in the process of getting a dental implant.  It will be my first.  I hear good things about them.  😀

God bless you!

Really gorgeous cards, these, Colleen! Even having a similar theme, there's so much variety, and so much uniqueness among them, I could keep looking and get more inspired every time I look at them. Spectacular job! Thank you so much for sharing with us at the Tic Tac Toe challenge!

Wowee, Colleen, what a pretty display of cards! I like the realistic look of the leaves on your first one and the leaves on the dress form are fabulous. All wonderful cards. Good look with the dental work!

Yikes! Sorry about the tooth, Colleen. That's a bummer. Glad you're getting it taken care of though. Looking forward to seeing your new paint job, too!

And moving right along...these cards are all just so very, very well done, beautiful and elegant each and every one. Hope you and yours are doing well!

Wow! What a wonderful collection of autumn leaves, Colleen! I especially love the skirt made from the colorful leaves. Very creative! Happy Birthday!

All of your cards are beautiful! I adore fall colors, and you really got me with the yellow on the first card. I've never gotten much out of nitrous oxide. My dentist always felt if I started to drift away it was too much nitrous. Never more than 50%. I'm sorry you have to go through all the dental work, but implants are the thing these days.
