Every Leaf Is a Flower

The temperatures have dropped. The leaves are changing color. Soup is simmering on the stove (or in my case, in the Crock Pot). I love this time of year!

To celebrate the changing of the seasons, I made an Autumn card, using the Raisin Boat Arboretum Leaves stamp set from SumMore Fun. And the good news is - you can get this stamp set for FREE with a $50 purchase (but only through the end of October). It can also be purchased for only $5.99 right now (yes, it's on sale)... but hurry! I'm not sure when the sale will end.

There is a little splash type of stamp in the stamp set. I randomly stamped it and then blended some of the same ink onto the lighter piece of designer paper, too.

I love the Albert Camus quote that is in the stamp set, too. It reminds me of a conversation I had with our oldest son when he was just three years old. We were driving home that October after visiting my parents out-of-state. I was admiring the fall foliage and told Jeremy to look at the pretty colored leaves. With a very seriousness to his voice, he replied, "No, Mama. Flowers!" 

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
