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!
