Autumn is upon us

Hi Friends,

Well, for some parts of the country Autumn has finally started to show its true colors, I am delighted because this is my very favorite season of them all.  Cooler, yes, cooler as I am enjoying every bit of it.

I hope where ever you are in the world, the new season brings smiles to your face. 

For today's card to share, I had an idea in mind for an Autumn design but had to try a few things first before I could put it on a card face and call it a good idea lol.  But my creativity on this one started with a bucket, then leaves, what you see on this card all came together by trying this and that to my final product.  I hope you enjoy it as well.

 I used the small leaf set from Impression Obsession mainly as well as their small bucket with handle.  I also used Cheery Designs lamp post.  Marianne Designs for other leaf accent, Gold leaf product, glossy accent, fast grab glue, translucent embossing powder, and inks.  Paper is from Digital stash.


Have a great day, thanks for stopping by...


  1. What beautiful colours ... your leaves look so real
    This would be a GREAT card for someone who has a birthday in Autumn. I wonder if there are hedgehogs hibernating inside that bucket ? LOL ! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  2. Great minds think alike, Angela, as i thought the same thing when i saw this is a lovely autumnal the colours on the leaves too and the added touch of a lamp post....xxxx

  3. I have seen this card in person and let me tell you the camera does not do this one justice. In person those leaves are AMAZING. The technique you used on those leaves just make this card POP. As soon as I saw those leaves I knew I had to try using the clear embossing technique. I can't wait to get a chance to work on something like this. This card is gorgeous, and it really does hit a home run with the fall motif. Thank you for sharing your wonderful cards with us.

  4. Oh my this card! Love the fall colors and the shiny leaves. The lamp post is adorable, and the use of gold leafing adds such a wonderful touch. Fall is definitely in the air, and your card expresses that feeling perfectly! Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Geri
