FALL is in the air!

HI Everyone!
Boy! Yesterday was sure a FALL day around here! A couple days ago I took a friend to the Valley and we saw leaves turning color already! What's with that, anyway?
Well - I guess along that line - I have been thinking of the Fall leaves; and the Thanksgiving season which will be upon us (in Canada) in another month - and decided to haul out the Big Shot Die "Leaves #2". I cut out some colored leaves, ran them thru an embossing folder and made a couple cards!

For this first one I also used the stamp set - Lovely as A Tree - I stamped it in Early Espresso; and then second generation stamped it behind the first image.... creating the woodsy scene. I could have been more creative and sponged a sky and grass - but as you can see ... that didn't happen! :) I love these die-cut leaves but don't think to use them until Fall rolls around each year. The DSP is from the Mocha Morning combo!


 here is the inside of this card -

The second card is pretty basic - used some punches for the circles and a piece of the scallopped dotted ribbon --- love this ribbon! It comes in so many colors!  I used versamark ink and stamped leaves all over the card itself.


Thanks for visiting me today!
I hope you will come again!
Blessings and HUGS!

Love the embossed leaves and your color choices. Now if we could just figure out how you can send your cool weather to Texas, we'd be set! Happy stamping!
