Happy Fall

Hello all,

It's a beautiful SoCal fall day. Sunny, clear and in the low 70s. I hope it's a fine day where you are.

I've been making a few challenge cards this morning. I started with a card for this week's Freshly Made Sketch since the challenge ends tomorrow. Lucky for me, this card will also work for LeAnne's tic-tac-toe challenge at the Paper Players. Without actually planning it, I can use the left side of leaves, ribbon, die cut.

I started by embossing the card base with a TE Fall Leaves embossing folder. The three sketch elements are cut from rust and ivory card stock with a Die-namics Inside and Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle die. Those sweet little foxes are a sticker pack from Paper Source. The greeting is from Lawn Fawn.

The inside is simple. I just stamped another Lawn Fawn greeting that says "Jump for Joy!"

I'm enjoying watching & listening to the final regular season baseball game for 2018. I'll watch the post-season (even though my team won't be playing), then I'll look forward to spring training 2019.

Have a nice afternoon and evening, and thanks for looking in,

Stamps: Jump For Joy set by Lawn Fawn

  1. Adorable! I predict a winner...those foxes are so cute and so is the background!

  2. I was going to say, 'Cute as a button,' but I'll have to change that to 'Cute as a fox!". Soooo very sweet. That falling leaves embossing folder is fantastic. There's just so much delicious texture in this card, I want to reach through and touch it! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players.

  3. This is such a great card! I love those sweet little foxes and the gorgeous embossed background! Those leaves are fabulous! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  4. Super-sweet card! Love the colors and the subtle texture from the dies adds so much interest. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  5. I love the warm cozy feeling of your card Colleen! Fabulous take on the sketch!
