Autumn Blessings

Happy Autumn! I woke up this morning to a cloud burst! Scared me right out of bed...I thought we had a sprinkler gone wild in the back yard, but it was just rain falling into the swimming pool and hitting the patio umbrellas. It was very nice. I do so love Autumn and I am anxious to get to my decorations and start making soup again.

I have a card to share today! I was in the mood for a Fall card so that is what I made. I hope you like it.

What a lovely card to usher in the Fall season! A cloud burst scaring you out of bed, not so much, but this card. Yes! The leaves look so neat fluttering down the screen.

Have a wonderful weekend, sweet friend!

Beautiful card! Your color is still superb! I love fall too. The crisp air and beautiful bouquet of colored leaves of the trees. I agree with Jeanne about the leaves on your blog floating down. So peaceful!

I can't wait to make so soup too. I have a great white chili recipe from my Aunt Dotty. Yummy!

Have a great day!

Pretty card, Barb! Love the color combo, and sunflowers are always so bright and cheery! Looks like your mojo's back in full swing! ;)

While I'm no longer a fan of being rained on (post-Fukushima), and storms can be frightening at times, falling rain is still a beautiful sound. Fall's my very favorite time of year, with its cool, crisp air, and we're just now starting to see the leaves turn (which is strange because usually by now they're all about gone). We've already had soup a couple times, and I'm gearing up for more (after our weekend temps of 80s subside -lol)!

Oh, and at the risk of showing my ineptitude, can you share how you made such a gorgeous bow with your seam binding? I've tried and tried and always come up lacking. ;(

Beautiful card! You got a great piece of shadow under the pot. Mine never look right to me...
