Autumn Thanks


This month has absolutely flown by but the kids and I did manage to sneak in some fun fall activities over the weekend. We visited the pumpkin patch and picked out pumpkins, played in the hay, took a tractor ride, and got lost in a corn maze. And then there was caramels and apples and popcorn + a scary movie. And pumpkin carving and trick or treating at their school. Needless to say, we were all a little worn out by the time the weekend was over.


But the lovely sight of autumn leaves on the trees and on the ground never fails to inspire. I pulled out an older stamp set and paper kit  and created this card. The leaf was inked up with a newly released Colorbox Paintbox — Taos, which has all the right shades of ink for capturing fall. I embossed it with an opalescent powder and added one gold leaf as well to try and capture that pretty evening glow. Gosh, this truly is my favorite time of year!

Cozy knits and warm fires,
