Fabulous Fall Card

Good morning friends.  Well, try as we might, we cannot hold onto summer any longer.  This makes me sad to see the days growing shorter and cooler, but it is inevitable and does happen every year.  You would think I would be used to it by now at my age ;)  Once I get over my grieving at the loss of summer, I will enjoy the anticipation of the beautiful colors of fall, the smell of the leaves and sounds of them crunching under my feet.  The wind swirling them through the air and kids jumping and playing in them.  To give me a boost at the mood that Fall can bring, I have decided to make and share a Fall card with you today.  The colors really are so pretty.  Have you seen the pumpkins out in abundance already and the gorgeous fall flowers gracing our porches?  It is a lovely sight to see.  I went with the simple pumpkin image but accented with glossy accents and glitter.  I added many gemstone and die cut flourishes and some of those wonderful fall flowers to really dress up my card.  I am very happy with the result and do enjoy just looking at it.  I hope you do too. 

I hope that you are enjoying the quickly approaching season too and thank you for coming over for a visit with me today.   Feel free to leave me a comment and share your thoughts of Fall too.  Do you love it...are you sad to see summer go....does it make you feel as if the year has gone by too fast, or is this the one season that you wait all year to see?  Look forward to hearing from you.

Have a wonderful day and many blessings to you my friends.
