I love it- you?
The crisp, cool air. The crunch of multicolored foliage under your feet. Pumpkin spice creamer in my cinnamon coffee. Apple pie. Chili.
I mean, seriously. I love it.
It makes me feel like this:
Oh yes, “happy, happy, joy, joy” is totally it for me + autumn.
My sweet husband…. not so much. It’s not that he dislikes it, he just has a different perspective on one tiny little aspect of the season. The leaves.
Our home has many, many, many large trees which deposit many, many, many more leaves in our yard. We also live at the end of the block and seem to accumulate all the neighbors leaves, too. He is outside every free chance he gets from September through January, and then again in the spring gathering the leftovers.
Poor guy. At least he’s got the big boys to help him out now.
And while they’re outside, I get to play card maker ;)
I made this with not only my affection for the season in mind, but also for Cath’s Diggin’ on Damask challenge in the Moxie Fab World. Hope you had time to play along, too! There’s always soooo much trendy inspiration over there.
My damask leaves were placed behind the die cut kraft piece and accented with some stickles to bring out their fabulousness.
Also, the bottom cream piece is debossed with a woodgrain pattern and the “gust of wind” flourish is continued onto the kraft background. As I gathered all those buttons for the groundcover I gazed longingly at my sweetie through the window (gathering his), and…. I made him a pumpkin spice coffee. A labor of love for us both.
Happy Monday, friends! See you soon.
