Card Of The Week – Autumn

Card Of The Week – Autumn

How do you, personally, know when Autumn has arrived? Do you mark the changing of the season by a date on the calendar? Do you tell time by the darkening of the days? Do you watch for the tell-tale sign of the changing of the leaves?

Today, my body told me that Autumn had truly arrived when I woke up shivering and longing for a cup of hot cocoa to warm my chilled bones!

So – to mark the “official” arrival of the season (according to my body clock) – I am marking the date with the creation of my first autumn card of the year.

Since I have been feeling unwell all day (my body does not respond well to seasonal change!) I decided to be spontaneous and create today’s card using the first autumn-themed products I came across as I began to dig through my scrapping supplies.

Those products would be:

  • Close To My Heart Free Spirit & Abundance Paper Products
  • Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink – Chestnut Roan
  • Assorted Ribbons and Embellishments

Considering that I designed the card on the fly, how do you think it turned out?
