The Arrival of Autumn

First things first...
Congratulations to Joyce! 
You are the winner of my Craft Spinner Giveaway. Please contact to claim your prize.

Has anyone noticed that the leaves on the trees are slowly changing into an array of vibrant earth tones, swaying on the trees as if to sing a song.  

I do love this time of the year although my allergies do rise. Living in Texas I don't get to see much of the beauty of Autumn, but a trip to North Carolina (home) erases all the pollution and noise of the city and rewards me with clean crisp air, tree-lined roads that curve in and out.  

Autumn announces its arrival with cleaner air or at least it seems to be cleaner. I love the cool mornings without the humidity and the evenings are perfect for a cup of tea. This is the time of year when you let the outside air inside and if I were home (in N.C.) I would wash my linen and hang it out to dry rather than use a dryer. Nothing better than falling asleep on fresh cool sheets. 

Yep this is the time of year when I really start to miss home, but fortunately I can visit for a week or two. here and there.

To celebrate this season I do have a simple card to share and I promise this post will be a short one.

I used My Mind's Eye designer paper and Bazzil card-stock to create this card. The image is a really old digital image I purchased a long time ago so I am not sure where I got it.

I used Copic markers to color the image, and Recollections/Prima floral embellishments.  I used Spellbinder dies and Martha Stewart punches to create the waved edge, the stitched oval and the scalloped oval.  Lastly, I added ribbon, eyelets and a sentiment to finish this card at 5.5 x 5.5.
