Autumn Splendor

Hi all! It's Monday again, and that means it's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.

As I've mentioned before, October is my favorite month of the year. Our new house has this gorgeous tree in the backyard that turns bright red in the fall. A year ago we were having the house built and when I saw that tree I was just so happy! So Mark asked me yesterday if it had turned colors yet, and I said I wasn't sure. Well, yes indeed, it had turned colors, but unfortunately the tree was completely bare with a layer of red at its feet. And then the wind blew, and scattered everything, so I missed out on the photo shoot with the boys I had been planning in my mind. Doh! So when I started my Mojo Monday card, I was thinking about those red leaves scattered in the wind, and so I picked out Autumn Splendor and some new Cosmo Cricket paper and got to work. There aren't a lot of extra frills on the card because nap time didn't last too long, but I was just happy to get a little bit of stamping in.

For those of you who are excited about some new Verve in the future, our release date has been pushed out another week due to production delays. So we'll be showing off the new sets next week and releasing on the night of November 2.

Ink: Cajun Craze (SU!), Antique Linen (Ranger), Truffle (Mix'd Media)

Looking forward to the release. The push back date works out better for me as I've had unexpected vet bills this past weekend ;) LOL!

Absolutely LOVE this card, Julee. I'm swooning over the yummy colours you've used (fall colours are my fave) and your cluster of leaves and that polka dotted ribbon are fabulous.

We have all sorts of amazing maple trees blazing red right now and when mixed with the yellow as greens it is breath taking (that is until you have to rake them all up LOL!). Have a fabulous week :)

What a beautiful card! Red and orange maple leaves are my favorite and your coloring is just so vibrant, and looks outstanding against the cream card base.

I happened to read your prior post and it sounds like things are pretty overwhelming right now. Hope you're hanging in there!
