Fall and Indian Summer!!

Happy Tuesday Chicas!!

Once again, it's my turn to share a crafty morsel for ABC Toys & Crafts. Today's card features another new image from Inkadinkadoo. I rarely buy stamps that are just sentiments - but this stamp just makes me happy. First of all, fall in the Pacific Northwest is an amazing time of year. The mornings and evenings are cool, there's almost always a layer of marine air that lingers in the morning, and then it gradually burns off to expose the sun. The leaves are changing everywhere, so the colors just glow!! So, this image tied in perfectly with what's going on around me. How I constructed this card is pretty self-explanatory, but if you have any questions about it, please feel free to email me or leave a comment here. Otherwise, I've listed the recipe below.

I hope that you're enjoying a beautiful Indian Summer where you live.

LOVE this card, Missy! Those fall papers are stinkin' cute and I love the fact that you just used a sentiment for your main image!

Your wonderful "fall" description, almost makes me want to move back....not! As far as Indian Summers...it was a balmy 105 here yesterday...can't wait for you to get back and enjoy it with me!

I love the colours Karolyn. We don't have an Autumn with those colours where I live.
