Fall Gratitude

I think I've mentioned once or twice how much I love fall. It is hands-down my favorite season of the year. I love the warm days, the cool nights, the crisp smell of the air, the colors of the leaves. Fall means I get to start baking again (another one of my passions) and it means, at least to me, a time for starting again. I enjoy making fall-themed cards, too! Today's card is another project from Saturday's stamp-a-stack. I think one of my favorite products in the Holiday Mini is this Spice Cake designer paper. The colors and designs are fantastic, just perfect for autumn-themed creations.

I used my Big Shot and the Leaves #2 die to create my leaf embellishments. I crumpled up the leaves and sponged them with ink, trying to make them more realistic.

We've been spending a lot of time outside, trying to absorb every last ounce of nice weather. I know that a cool down is coming, and I'm so thankful for this sweet picture of my cutie-pies, on a recent hike:

They are getting so big! I keep looking at the two of them, wondering when it happened. I keep reminding myself to enjoy them as they are, right now, today, because they are growing so fast. OK, enough rambling... :) Thanks for checking in, and I hope that you get a chance to enjoy your day today.
