IB88 Celebrate Fall

Happy Thursday, peeps!  It still feels like summer, but fall is definitely on everyone's mind!  Laurel has a wonderful fall image for our Inspired By challenge's my take on it:

And here is her pretty prompt:

I used an older Close to My Heart stamp called Charmed Holidays; I placed the stamp in my Stamparatus and used sponge daubers to color in each portion of the image with Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, Old Olive:

I sponged the edges with Mango Melody, ran it through the Big Shot with the Subtle embossing folder, mounted it on some Authentique papers, then added some Mossy Meadow ribbon and a sentiment banner created from two stamp sets:  A Wreath for All Seasons by Papertrey ("FALL") and Itty Bitty Christmas by SU.  I just love fall and these warm autumn colors!  I hope you'll play along with our Inspired By challenge this week!  Be sure to check out what the DT created as well!  Thanks for popping in today!

Cassidy has been fighting what I call a "back to school" cold....after being here all summer long, she's been exposed to lots of nasty germs from all those kiddos at school....she has really been down and out!  Hopefully she'll be on the mend soon.  Here she is having lunch earlier last week with mommy and Wayne!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I love the vintage look you achieved with your sponge daubers. I always forget to employ those! Sorry Cassidy is not feeling so hot.

LeAnne I love the look of your sponging... what took it over the top for me was the embossing!! LOOK at THAT!! Just fabulous!

Your beautiful textured fall card has a gorgeous nostalgic feel LeAnne. I love the colours of this season. We are beginning to feel an autumn freshness in the air here in England too. Poor Cassidy with her cold. Hope she feels better soon :)

This is just so rich and beautiful! Marvelous card LeAnne. Poor Cassidy, I hope she feels better soon. It's definitely a back to school thing. Sweet P has been stuffy too and had a touch of a cough for a few days.
