I don't know about you, but I am really ready for cooler weather and Autumn to arrive.  It's my favorite time of year.  Next week I will be traveling to Oregon for a visit with my daughter and son-in-law, and I can't wait!  Leaves changing colors, wood smoke in the air, some rain and hiking in the woods!  AHHHH yes, I am ready!  

So in honor of my favorite season I have been busy with my Thanksgiving cards.  This one was done with a Cuttlebug folder for the embossing, then some leaves stamped on a lighter shade of paper, a bit of ribbon and a rhinestone sentiment from Micheal's.  It came together pretty well for such a simple design.

Entered in the following challenges:


  1. Great card. Yes the weather is great here too.
    As always you did another outstanding job.

  2. Enjoy the cool weather for me, will you, please? It's still hot her in TX and does not feel like fall..Love the card. Looks great!! Thanx for joining us this week at Incy Wincy. Hope to see you again, soon.
