Happy First Day of Fall!

Well it's finally here - the first day of Fall! It's time to get in the crawl space and dig out of my bins of autumn/Halloween decoration - yay!

I made this card yesterday with Fall in mind. I just love these little pumpkins. I sponged the edges of the ovals with Chocolate Chip ink before gluing them together and I don't know if it shows up in the picture or not but the paper I used is textured. The scalloped circles were cut out of black glossy card stock, burgundy card stock and some irridescent copper paper I found in my stash. I taped them all together and then ran them through the Cuttlebug with the Paisley embossing folder. Then to finish it off I added some brown felt oak leaves I got from Kutz (see my side bar for the link). I still haven't decided if I'm going to put this one in my shop or keep it for myself. I will have some new Fall cards in the shop in the next couple of days so be on the lookout!

Oh and while I have you here - let me ask if this is something you've ever heard. The other day my friend and I were taking a walk in a local park and there were lots and lots of acorns on the ground. She said that meant there was going to be a TON of snow this winter. I'm hoping she doesn't know what she's talking about (LOL) but if you've ever heard something like that leave a message in the comments. I used to love snow when I was kid - until I got a driver's license and discovered the horrors of losing traction. That's why I like Fall now - no one skids off the road and gets stranded in a pile of leaves! :o)

Talk to you soon!
Sue :o)


  1. I am soooo into metallic papers right now. Not sure if it's the season of 'shininess' or what! The metallic on this is what caught my eye...great job on this card, Sue!

  2. Ooohh the embossed/glossy paper is gorgeous, a pretty card!! No, never heard of that, but I wouldn't be surprised...I don't like driving on slick roads either!!!

  3. Sue,

    This is gorgeous, I love all of the textures!
