Happy Fall

I can't believe it's Thursday again already! 

As I write this post, we are in the middle of a brutal heat wave. We have had temps with humidity feeling into the 40's most of the week. To play with a fall image definitely helped me cool off and it reminded me the cooler, sweater weather is coming! 

This week my card features "Tommy's Fall Fun" and the "Happy Fall Y'all" sentiment. I have been known to jump in a pile of leaves the odd time with my nieces and nephews <wink>. I think a pile of leaves brings out the kid in all of us doesn't it? 

Close Up

I started by colouring my image with alcohol markers cut it out using a stitched rectangle die. I used some bright, fun paper and added some clouds, a fence and some grass to create my background. I added a big leaf - out of my comfort zone for sure - to the corner and added my sentiment (I only used part of the sentiment and cut it apart). I used a leaf punch to create some more falling leaves and rolled them on a pen to give them a bit of dimension. Adding my favourite - gumdrops - finishes off my card.
