Autumn Blessings

Our yard has two very large trees. The leaves are falling. (I'm not sure my husband considers that a blessing. LOL!) I love the beauty of Autumn!

So I created a card reminiscent of the beautiful fall colors:

It reminds me of a story from the past; way back when our oldest son was just three years old. My mother was traveling with my son and I on our way home from a visit at their house. As we drove along, I admired the beautiful fall leaves and said to my son, "Jeremy, look at the beautiful leaves." He responded, in a voice of confidence, "No, mama, FLOWERS!"

I'm hosting my first ever Cardmaking Stack-a-thon this Saturday and this is one of the cards we'll be making! I'm so excited about this new adventure! Wish me luck!!!

Enjoy the Autumn colors!

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
