Autumn Blessings




The autumn equinox will occur at 4:44 pm today. With it being a cool 60 something out, you can feel fall in the air. It's funny just about this time of year regardless of the temperature, I just want to start wearing long pants, sweaters and cozy up in comfy chair with a cup of hot tea and a book. These are the blessings of autumn.

Just Us Girls is having a color challenge this week. This is the second week for design team applications. As I said last week, I am crossing my fingers.


I love this color combo and us it quite a bit at Christmas. I pushed myself to use this combo for a fall card. Thank goodness for distress inks, with their many shades of brown and red! 

The design inspiration for this card comes from Kathy Racoonsin's card over at CASE Study.
Several other challenges are featuring fall as the challenge this week:







I usually can't figure out how to make one card fit several challenges, but all of my friends at the various challenges made it easy for me this week! Thanks everyone!
