Dreaming

No, fall has not hit this part of Texas!  I keep thinking that any day now it will.....but while it's still in the 90's around here, I can only dream.


Just a really quick post to say Happy Fall to all of you that are experiencing it right now!  I used some leaves from Close To My Heart and they were stamped on Very Vanilla.  I then stamped over that with the Sanded background from SU.  The sentiment is a digi and no idea where it came from (if you recognize it, please let me know).  The colors I used - which remind me of fall - were Cajun Craze and Old Olive and some DP from SU.


This is my take on the sketch from Sweet Sunday and I'll enter it in their challenge.  I'll also enter it in the challenge at Mark's Finest Papers for Speedy Fox and Friends (leaves).

I'll be back tomorrow with my {Pin}spirational and Shopping Our Stash post - and then have a very special post on Wednesday.......

Thanks for stopping by.......
Lynn

Great take on the sketch Lynn and I like the fall colours. The leaves look so pretty and the twine bow is just the right touch for this.

Beautifully done, Lynn! Exquisite leaves and wonderful color combo. Fall has finally arrived here where I live, and we're in for a 3 day rain storm. I doubt we'll have a leaf left on the trees by the time this one is done. :-D

We are starting to have fall here in northwest Georgia, and your card has accurately captured the colors I see as I look out my window. Beautiful card, Lynn. I so like the papers you've used and the combination of the background stamp and the leaves is wonderful.

So pretty and perfect for all of us wishing for fall, Lynn! I really like the texture the Sanded stamp and embossing folder gives to the stamped leaves. The sentiment is very Texan, too. Have a great day! :)

I love the way you overstamped those leaves with the sanded backgrounder! What a fabulous look! Beautiful card!

Donna Hanley said...

Great card, Lynn. I'm a sucker for fall leaves and because you stamped over them it gives them a more real life look to them. Smart thinking. I love that fact that I am fortunate to have such smart creative friends. Love the papers and the gems. Enjoy your week.

It might not be fall in Texas, but your card has captured it beautifully! The leaves are amazing on the sanded background and I love those little orange dots (brads?) and your twine bow!

Wow Lynn! this is Soo Beautiful! Love your Fabulous fall leaves and your Super take on the Sweet Sunday sketch! I know just what you mean about the temps not being very Fall-like.. We just finally this past week got some cooler temps, I sure hope they stick around! It'd be nice to actually have Fall during the Fall months for a change, lol 8-)

Hugs
