Waltzingmouse Blog Party ~ September



Fall. My favorite Season of the year. So I LOVE making cards using a Fall theme. For today's Waltzingmouse Blog Party, we were to create a project with a Fall theme.

I wanted to make some negative space leaves using fun fall paper designs and some of the fabulous Waltzingmouse sentiments!! So I thought why not spell out "F-A-L-L" with the WMS Victorian Alphabet, and use the "Celebrate" sentiment from Say it Loud with it. Perfect!!



I just added a few embellishments, and woila...a Fall inspired card. Now if only the weather around here would cooperate. I must admit when I hear about areas that are already experiencing cooler weather, I get a bit jealous. We've been in the 100's, and it's getting a bit old. So, if any of you want to share, I won't keep ya from it. ;) But then again, when ya'll are shoveling snow and dealing with ice in a few months, the jealousy will probably be pointed toward me. So, I probably shouldn't complain too much, eh? ;)

Anyway, thanks for visiting. I hope you had a fantastic weekend!!
Happy Stamping!

Yeah, maple leaves - even better, vine maple leaves :) Great card and fun detail with the seam binding flower and mesh behind it.

We are having glorious weather up here...happy sigh. Cooler nights and lovely afternoons. Definitely warmer than usual, but we'll take it as it's in the mid 70s to low 80s. Hope the heat cools down a bit for you!! 100 is too hot!!!
