Happy Tuesday, happy fall!  Well, I know, it was fall on Saturday, but it REALLY felt like fall yesterday!  Wow!  Perfect timing for this beautiful challenge from Arielle for the ColourQ:


I think I read that this pillow is woven leather strips!  What a terrific inspiration!  I pulled out French Foliage…the BEST fall set, to make my card:


Normally I would pair this with Very Vanilla, but I love the clean, crisp look that the white cardstock gives!  I embossed it with a fall EF, added some DP strips, my leaves, which are also stamped with Gold Glory, a sentiment tag with some faux suede ribbon, and a little button gourd:


I had an extra leaf cut out, so I added it to the inside along with one of my favorite fall sayings:


My minister actually used this saying in one of his sermons last year, and he pronounced “Camus” like “kay-moo”… apparently it is French and I have been mispronouncing it for a long time!!  Hope you can play along with our beautiful fall color palette this week!  Can’t wait to see what you share with us over at the ColourQ blog!

Cassidy won’t be back until tonight, so I checked some of my pictures and I don’t think I shared this one from a few weeks ago….just chillin’ in the laundry basket:


If I did already share it, it’s still fun to see it again!  Have a wonderfully blessed day!
