Just A Hint Of Fall

Good Morning!  A very quiet Saturday morning here on Cape Cod, cool, crisp, and clear.  Well, it isn't even 6 a.m. as about 3.5 hours you will hear the slam of every cottage rental door, time to move out and make room for the new renters.  If you have ever have been here on a Saturday change-over, you also know the traffic woes that lie ahead.  We try to stay home on Saturdays, playing in the yard, watching a good movie, grilling with friends.  We make do.  But the air has a chill and September is fast approaching.  Trust me when I say, September and October are the BEST months on Cape Cod.....truly......BUT don't tell anyone!

Today's card I would like to show you is for the Flourishes Autumn Challenge #233.

I have used the Dahlias stamp set from Flourishes.  These beautiful images color up so nicely with Copic Markers.  Although I only own 2 of their sets, so far, I LOVE what I have.  Their new stamp sets for the August Release are now available, the sets include;  Chrysanthemum, Mountain View and Autumn Blessings.

I found this great paper pack in my stash, S.E.I. Dill Blossom, love the look with the dahlias. Stamped image on Ivory card stock and then mounted that on Just Peachy cut out with the Lacy Circles die from Spellbinders, all mounted on Cranberry Tart card stock.  All card stock available at Gina K Designs.  Button and twine as accents. The inside is stamped with, When I Count My Blessings, I Count You Twice....

That's it for today.  Time to watch and listen to the families pack up, there's just something about seeing a family eat Popsicles for breakfast.  lol  I do remember those days, fondly!
