Grateful for Fall

Fall has arrived! I don't know if it's official yet, but after Labor Day weekend I call it fall. I'm a little anxious because it's my favorite season! I had a wonderful long weekend with family. We went to an amusement park, had a picnic, built a campfire, went to an outdoor concert, and saw fireworks. I think I was a little too busy because I came down with a horrible cold the other day! I went to the doctor today and got a prescription, so hopefully I'll be better by the weekend.

Among all my travels this past weekend, I was amazed at how many trees have leaves that are already changing colors! It inspired me to use the Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper, Autumn Traditions. What perfect paper for fall themed cards or scrapbook pages. I stamped the leaves at the top of the card using the Falling Leaves stamp set, and then cut them out Paper Snips which are great for cutting into the tiniest of areas. Paper Snips are a must have!

The recipe for this creation can be found at the bottom of the post. You'll notice I used some ribbon from my Ribbon Originals share! This set, Orchard, coordinates with the Autumn Traditions paper. That's what I love about SU! They make it easy to create with everything that coordinates!

Please leave me a comment and let me know if you are a fall season lover or not? If you have a favorite fall themed stamp set, I'd love to know that too! I love Falling Leaves and Season of Friendship.

If you need further directions on how to create the card pictured today, please drop me an e-mail HERE and I'll be glad to help you.

Enjoy and have a wonderful day!

Perfect fall card! I hate saying goodbye to summer, but I do enjoy the fall - apple picking, pumpkin picking, jumping in leaves :), cozy sweaters - its bittersweet
