Happy Fall

I have so many wonderful feelings about the fall season..As a child I use to love the smell of the neighborhood, as I lived on Oak Tree Lane... and the trees were huge... and the amount of leaves never seemed to stop... snow would fall on them prior to them all being raked up... and it never failed... my Dad would get ours all raked up... and the man next door didn't... and guess where the man next door leaves all ended up??? Yup... in our yard... just in time for my Dad to rake again... not a fun thing... Anyway... it kept my Dad going... that is for sure..

But I would love to run and jump in the leaves, and then when I got older, loved to actually rake them... if I had the time... I was very involved in sports in the fall so there wasn't much time to rake leaves... or for that matter to do anything... but I did keep active...

I also loved the colors and when in college was in the mountains of West Virginia and loved to paint and sketch the beautiful colors of the leaves... so very pretty... NOW.. I know it is fall when I see the trees start to change thier color... but also have you ever noticed the fall flowers where you live...

Around here ... we have these beautiful golden rods... I guess about at least 15 different kinds... so very magnificent... and then all of a sudden over night... these beautiful pale lavender flowers all start to pop out... also a smalle pale purple daisy... love them... Oh I picked a huge bouquet today of them all.. also some great red leaves...and some fire thorn... love these fall colors...

Okay... so after all that... we came home... and I had to relax for a few hours... then I was up and going...
I had decided that I was going to do a few things a little bit different .... and so you will have to go to Pretties by Bonnie to see the changes...  but I drew this leaf design so that you can cut it out with a Spellbinder... This is so much fun... Print, cut and color and put onto a card... wild...
I also used some of my new Pumpkins and colander design... I have to say that I love the look of this card..

Oh yeah... I didn't show it to you yet...The part that is white behind the pumpkins is the newest digital!!!!

PRINT .. CUT.. COLOR and use... wow... how easy is that...

Leaves for the Pumpkins, Bittersweet berries, and Happy Fall... I of course had to pop dot the leaves... but other wise that is the way it arrives onto your computer...

This card is also for The Shabby Tea Room... their challenge today is PUMPKINS... love it...

Hope that you will run over to Pretties by Bonnie  and get this digital along with the pumpkin...
Have fun.. and enjoy this pretty season of the year... FALL.... Happy Fall to each and every one of you...
Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
