Season of Giving

Hello Readers,

We are now approaching my favorite season ever!! Fall!!

Things start to slow down and the most remarkable thing happens, Harvest time... A time to feast on all that has happened to us this year. Autumn is about reflecting on the year and giving thanks for our blessings, who we are, and who we are so privileged to know. That brings me to today's card that I will be entering in The Male Room and AAA Cards.

I hope you like it!

I used a metallic sheet of scrap paper and embossed
it using this basket weave embossing folder from SpellBinders.
A pop of color was added to this monochromatic color scheme.
Notice the texture of the burlap banner all frayed and dirty.
Nothing says Autumn like fresh picked apples from the orchard. We look forward to visiting our local orchard to pick apples, go on a hayride, and try find our way out of the corn maze. My husband and I always banter where to go next..

Entering Challenges:


American football is now in full swing, the other day I saw a colored leaf on the ground, and the air is starting to change. So happy to see all the hallmarks of fall.  

So yes Martha, I love the smell of Fall. Thank you very much my friend!! 

That is all for now I want to thank you for taking time out of your busy day to be with me.. If you'd like please leave a comment.. Take care all and we will see you sooner then later!!

All the Best,

Your basket of fruit reminds me so much of all the Harvest Festivals displays we always used to have in school. Great card. Thanks for linking up at The Male Room and AAA Cards.
