With the summer ending...

Of course I start dreaming of Fall! That is my favorite time of year. Love the cool crisp air, and most of all the COLORS! The trees become sooo gorgeous! One of these days I'm going to go all the way to Maine and see the foliage there, I hear its breathtaking at times.

I made this card for 2 challenges really...one for a Fall challenge in the Gina K forum at SCS and the other for the technique challenge, but I only did that on the words, its called faux dry embossing, and I definitely need a stamp-a-ma thingy before attempting again! But the cards in the gallery at SCS using that technique are gorgeous! And now my card, haha!

I colored this leaf with reds, yellows, oranges, and even some green, but you cant tell it from the picture. I tried taking this picture about 10 times, and it still looses its coloring! Very frustrating...guess this is one of those cards, 'looks much better in person' lol. Cause really it does. I wanted to try and capture all the brilliant colors of the Fall...especially the reds, love those trees of that color.

Well, feeling much better today! Made 2 cards, got caught up on my daily blog reads and also received a wonderful award from Donna that I will post later with. I was so tickled *big grin*. Hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday!
