Catching up leaves!

I love fall!  I love the weather (cooler, windy, crisp,) ! I love the clothes (sweaters, jackets)! I love the foods (apples, pumpkins and squash)!  But my favorite part of fall is the leaves.

I walked to school most of my life (except when Mrs. Phillips, a merciful neighborhood mom, drove us).  I loved crunching on the leaves to and from school.  Also, sometimes after a rain they would temporarily stain the sidewalk in a cool overlapping pattern.

Over on it is time for "Hope You Can Cling To"!

One of the challenges was "Peaceful Leaves" and here is my card:

I hope you can participate in "Hope You Can Cling To" as well.

ALSO... it is HOGtoberfest over at Hambo Stamps. They are having an additional 30% off items on their sale pages.  THIS is the time to buy stamps!

Juliana, this turned out so well! Great colors and textures/elements... It's funny how images go from just "cute" to "need" just by seeing someone interpret them - haha! Thanks for the inspiration!

This really is wonderful! I love the leaves along the side and the embossed background. It all turned out fabulously!
