Fall Mums

Happy October! It's the first day of October and it is still going to be over 100 here today! Oh come on! Enough already. I shouldn't have to be listening to my air conditioner running, should I? It's supposed to cool down next week - into the high 80's - ahhhhh, a welcome relief!

In celebration of October, here is my mums card. We lived in the finger lakes region of New York several years ago and really enjoyed autumn there with the colorful leaves, beautiful fall flowers, including mums and acorns falling from the mighty oak tree in the front yard. I do miss that - except for the raking of all those leaves in our HUGE yard. lol

I created the frame by cutting/embossing Spellbinders Beaded Oval and airbrushing, then cutting the oval from the center. I then cut the oval into the So Saffron card front and embossed it with the Cuttlebug folder. I also cut the oval into the Riding Hood Red card front, aligned all of them and adhered them. I added the very vanilla cs to the inside of the card, used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the stamp and stamped it using versamark ink and gold embossed it before coloring with ink and a wet paintbrush. See that cute acorn charm on the bow?

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great fall day! I'll be here in the air conditioning and under a ceiling fan! lol
