Hello Crafty Friends!  I hope you're all having a wonderful autumn day and getting geared up for these upcoming holidays.  I just finally got my fall/Halloween decorations down from the garage shelves yesterday and hope to do a little decorating in between crafting which, may not get me very far.  I barely leave my craft shed long enough to grab a bite to eat...

I have for you today, a card that goes with our theme over at Going Grey with Scrap Creations, and that is LEAVES.  I love fall leaves!  I was born and raised in Wisconsin and always loved the change of seasons, but fall was my favorite.  Not only for the gorgeous color, but it always signaled that the holidays were coming too.
I realized, while going through my stuff, that I don't have much for fall stamps.  I have a few digital images but no fall themed Magnolia stamps (GASP!), no leaves, just pumpkins (but that isn't the theme I'm working with this week).  I believe I need to visit Diana's store very soon even though I have an order showing up any day now.

For this card, I pulled out my all time favorite leaf paper by Provo Craft that I have had forrrrevvvverrr!  It's Fluttery Things by Michelle Anderson and the stripe that I've paired it up with is Tim Coffee's Fall Stripe by K&Co.  I cut the maple leaf from thin chipboard using my Cricut and layered it three times.  Michael's is having a sale on their glitter paper this week and I went a little CRAZY!  I used the orange to back my chipboard cut-out.  The letters are Heidi Swapp's chipboard letters that I inked, and then tied that little tag to.  I stamped "I am" using my Hero Arts alphabet letters set called Handwritten onto a tag that I die cut.  The sentiment inside says "For You".  If you're interested in the full recipe, just head to the bottom of the post.

Thank You So Much for stopping by today!
