Happy Fall, Y'all!

Hello, blog friends!  I am so happy that Autumn is here!  This cooler, more colorful time of year is my favorite!  Summer is too hot and humid for me, and I don't take the heat well.  I don't tan, just burn in no time at all!  God's beautiful palette of colorful leaves is just gorgeous, and I can't tell you how many colors there are!  To celebrate this beautiful time, I made some cards having to do with pumpkins, my most favoritous "squash" of this time, especially as pie!  Or bread, or soup, or muffins, etc.!  Can't you just smell that wonderful cinnamony pumpkin scent all over the house?  I can - could be because my daughter just used one of the pumpkins we bought for Halloween, and made little chocolate chip pumpkins loaves for a bake sale at church!  hehe  They are soooooooooooo good!  You wouldn't think chocolate chips and pumpkin would go well together, but it's almost, I said ALMOST as good as chocolate and peanut butter together!

Well, with no further ado, here are photos of my cards.  I hope you enjoy!  Thanks so much for visiting, and please know that I really appreciate you taking the time to check in!  Happy Fall, and Happy Thanksgiving!
This card was so fun to make!  I love this stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs.  The focal image is from a Vintage Winter Holiday Postcards cd from Twisted Papers.  The little pumpkin on the envelope is from the same.

This is the inside of the card.

The pumpkin label was printed in muted colors, so I brightened
the pumpkin by coloring with Copic markers.

I got some new "toys" in the mail - some actual silver and copper stripping, and applied
some of the copper here.  It molded right onto the embossing on the orange background.  This
image is from the cd mentioned above, and the seed packet and wording are from
Our Daily Bread Designs.
I love this vintage pumpkin image from the cd above!  It's so different, and the coloring is unique.
It reminds me of all the different pumpkins we saw at the pumpkin patch, but some not this pretty!

Closeup of sparkle added to pumpkin - PUMKUM as my little grandson called it!

This is the card inside, and it could be used for any occasion during the fall.

I didn't care for the background paper here too much when just looking at it by itself,
but when I put the image on top, with it's similar colors, it didn't look bad!  The paper
looked like a bunch of eyeballs!  lol  The swirls and leaves are from Heartfelt Creations.
The Thanksgiving Greetings panel is from the Vintage Winter Holiday Postcard cd.

Here's a good look at the "eyeball" paper!  hehe  "May many blessings come your way
on this Thanksgiving Day" sentiment by Heartfelt Creations. 
The maple leaf is a sticker from my stash.

I love the ribbon used on this card with its leaves, pumpkins, corn and such.  It really went
well with the ODBD Stamps.  The pumpkin image is from the cd mentioned previously. 

The little leaves stamped on the burgundy background are from a stubby stamper
from Stamps by Judith.

Inside the card.

This image from the Vintage cd is just wonderful!  I put gold sparkly ink on the sun rays. 
The sticker leaves just added to the elegance as they are embossed with gold too! 

Here you can see the gold embossing on the leaves and a little on the sun rays, and the bow.

This sentiment from my stash, spells it out!

I would love it if you would leave a comment!  I appreciate all comments left!
