Do you think of the changing colors and falling leaves, a visit to the apple orchard, raking piles of leaves and jumping in, cool crisp air, warm cider, football games, combines in the cornfields, a flock of ducks quacking overhead, carving jack-o-lanterns and the pumpkin goo on your fingers...
Your description of autumn may be different than mine, depending on where you live. Here in the great state of NEBRASKA, this is an especially beautiful time of year and one of my favorite seasons.
When I was shopping at Micheal's in Sioux City last week, I spotted this fantastic "Fall Harvest" mat pad with gorgeous colors and illustrations by Johnny Yanok. I have to tell you though, that as much as I *love* this paper, I struggled to make a card with it tonight. Why? Because it speaks for itself and I didn't want to cover it up. I played around with different sentiments and images and this is what I came up with...not one of my favorites, but I guess they can't all be, right?
In case you're interested, the
K & Company Fall Harvest pad includes 18 sheets of double-sided cardstock mats sized 4.75" x 6.75", three each of six designs.
The tree rubber stamp I used is "Falling Foliage" by Hero Arts and the "Happy Autumn" sentiment is a portion of a rubber stamp is PSX.
I would enjoy hearing what season is your favorite...or what Fall is like where you live. I read all your comments and appreciate them so so much.
Have a Happy Autumn!
