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?

Now it’s your turn to share your creations with us! What have you created or acquired this week? Whether you’re showing off your desk, sharing your latest acquisitions, or spotlighting your latest creation – be sure to share it with our creative community at our weekly parties!

    The weather has turned here too (Spain) and I have to wear a cardigan. I’m feeling cold this morning too. I was just about to make myself a hot drink when I read your post.
    The card is lovely. The colors are very warm (much needed now) and you did a great job on the fly!
    Have a great week,

    I think that considering you designed your card “on the fly” it turned out amazing. Lovely fall colors and pretty layers. We have very mild fall and winter where I live but the first thing I notice is the shorter days. I’m always sad to say goodbye to summer and days at the beach. However I love a great sweater or scarf so I get over it quickly! Thank you for sharing your lovely creation with us at Craftin Desert Divas. I hope you are warm and cozy today! xx Donna K

    Oh, and Fall is my favorite season – even if you could not tell that it was Fall here in Las Vegas. Blessings
