Happy first day of Fall!

Hi friends!

Happy first day of fall!
Don't you just love this time of year?
Fall is in the air :)

 While it's still very hot here and everything is a lovely shade of green,
I so love this time of year.
The world offers us a crispness to the air and the crunch of the leaves,
and the smell of all things autumn in recipes ♥
From candles to coffee, from kitchen decor and front porch doors,
I'm seeing lots and lots of fall!
For me, it's always a wonderful reminder that the holidays
 are right around the corner and the promise of many wonderful things to come.

I'm posting my card for The Project Bin a tiny bit early
so I can post on Fall the 1st :)
I've used an older set from The Project Bin but one that I still love so much.
It's called New Leaf and this set is just too cute 
with that cute little owl with his big 'ol eyeballs!

Lately, I've been staring at my stacks and stacks of unused paper pads 
and thinking ..

 'Kel, you really need to use those more!'

My friend Jeanette is the queen of perfectly picked designer papers
and uses them so wisely on her cards ...
The images are perfectly matched to the paper!

I saw the Echo Park autumn papers in my stash
and thought it wouldl make a cute card
by creating a faux tree for the owl.
The card base is from a Lawn Fawn paper pad
and the owls are from Echo Park with my die cut/colored owl sitting
in the tree with all the friends!
The sentiment is a perfect one for the arrival of autumn.

This stamp set is in the shop
and if you click on ANY stamp set, it will take you to a galleries
where you can see samples of gorgeous cards and how you can use the stamps!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
