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!
