Almost Fall


I love fall. The crispness in the air, the leaves changing colors, the cooler temperature (not the cold – don’t like the cold) – the way fall in Ohio looks and feels. Even coffee tastes better in the fall. We’ve some really cool mornings lately – in the 50’s in the morning – wonderful!

It’s not quite fall here yet, but it’s getting there in the next month or so. This tree just always reminds me of f all, before the leaves start falling.

I used a ton of colors on this card – Choc. Chip, Creamy Caramel, Certainly Celery, More Mustard, Barely Banana, So Saffron, Summer Sun, Kiwi Kiss, and Tangerine Tango. I stamped with Palette Noir and versamarked over my tree then used EP.

I used my Nestie as a mask for my dramatic white border.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

Fall is in the air. Our temps went from 90 and humid to 62 overnight last week and has stayed there. No Indian Summer for us this year. I love fall and your card is just perfect. Great coloring.
