MMMMMM yummy! I am baking home made pumpkin pies and my house smells soooo good! We are going to our annual Pumpkin Carving part tonight and I always do the pies. I'm in such a Fall mode with doing my cards for Thanksgiving and pies in the oven. Only there are no Autumn leaves, wood smoke in the air or cold weather. Oh well, fake it till ya make it!

The top card reminds me of PA where I lived as a small child. Covered bridges and country lanes... I used nestabilities on the scallop cuts, inked the edges and added some ribbon and a few embellishments. I love the burnt orange colored paper and have been using it a lot.

The second card is a simple one. I saw one very similar a long time ago and saved the idea. Just used my CB to do the bacground embossing and then I added the ribbon, leaf and acorn embellishment to spiff it up a bit. It's simple, but elegant. Again that purty burnt orange paper.


  1. Oh I love these vibrant colours, lovely image too :o)
