Ahh, a brief glimpse of Fall!


And I am here for you! The past two days have felt so much like fall is just around the corner. The mornings have been cool, the humidity has been low. The temperature has been in the low 80's. These are the days that I LOVE! Fall, I am officially declaring my favorite season! I used to have a major toss up between fall and spring. But Fall is going to win me over. There are too many windy days associated with spring up here on top of our hill. And wind. well. it blows! Here's to you fall. With your beautiful colors, your crisp air, your warm afternoons. And to your apple crisp. My favorite dessert. Well, one of my faves! I love all dessert - just ask my rear!

Onto today's card. (aren't you loving my new found blogging time!)

I followed Taylor's sketch on this one ( are you loving my new found sketch using time?) from over at Taylored Expressions. I do have to say, this card is much more impressive IRL than photographed here.

The flowers IRL are super sparkly - like they've been dusted with frost. It's really hard to capture that in a photo.


Anyone notice anything NEW on this card....yeah, I've put some sneak peaks on this one. Look beyond the flowers. See that B.U.tiful paper? It's new DSP that will be available Sept. 1. And are you wondering how I got that big scallop?

Yea - it's a new die for the Big Shot. It cuts a 12" long strip of scallop, plus some ric rac, and a zig zag, and a funky ribbon type of trim. It's all way too cha-cha!

Okay folks, that's all I've got for you today....I'll try and keep 'em coming at ya!

Stamps: Occassional Quotes
Paper: Early Espresso
