autumnal adventures

All right, I guess even I have to admit that it is autumn, now, unless you're lucky enough to live in the southern hemisphere.  Have you seen all the "fall theme" challenges this week?  I used the colors from Just Us Girls and the sketch from Sunday Stamps with the leaves theme from Addicted to CAS for this one - it also is easy to mail and fits "colors of fall" at Cards in Envy:
stamp sets - Vintage Leaves, Merry Everything; ink - Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler; card stock - Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake; punch - Ornate Tag Topper; 1/4" stitched grosgrain ribbon - Daffodil Delight (retired)

The next one is a CASE of the card design team member Amy Koenders made for for The Paper Players.  I used the colors from Fab Friday for the fall theme at Use Your Stuff:
stamp sets - Hardwood, A Dozen Thoughts, Serene Silhouettes; ink - Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry; card stock - Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede; Big Shot with Leaflets framelits

Two beautiful leafy designs Kathe!! Fall is here (well, not officially yet, but it's really in the air). And what a great way to celebrate with two beautiful autumn themed cards. Thanks so much for playing along at ATCAS.
