HELLO . . . FALL

The first day of fall already? While I love -- no, adore! -- the fantastical colors of fall, as well as the sometimes surprisingly balmy weather, I also dread it. Why? Because you know what comes next -- besides more of 2020, that is -- WINTER. My least favorite time of the year. For ever so many reasons.

To celebrate this auspicious day of the First Day of Autumn, I present to you a fallish card welcoming the new season. 


A completely flat card, it would be easy to send through the mail. 

As a backdrop to my Early Espresso die cut hello words, I chose some of that wonderful plaid paper from the Plaid Tidings pack on page 57 of the Mini Catalog. I was especially drawn to this particular design, not only because it truly reminds me of the fall season, but especially because it reminds me of upcoming Halloween and an icon of that day -- candy corn! Don't you agree? Doesn't it just make you smile?


I don't know if you can see it in the following photo, but the Early Espresso cardstock I mounted the plaid on has been embossed. I used the retired knit sweater embossing folder to embrace the colder weather and the need for snugglier clothing.

I die cut a few Pumpkin Pie leaves to tuck in among the words to add to the fall feel.


Anyway, just dropping by to wish you HAPPY FALL Y'ALL! 
Embrace the change(s). 
And stay healthy.


Autumn
Smiles.

  1. What a beautiful card! I too love the colors of fall but hate all that cold, wet, white stuff that tends to follow fall. :)
