Welcome to the porch!

 Hi friends!
I'm a little late to my own 'porch party!'
This has been an incredibly busy week for our family
with autumn activities in full swing.

And I'm trying to pack as my husband and I are taking a trip this weekend!

C'est l'amour! ♥

 I love seeing the homes in our neighborhood beautifully decorated
for this time of year ♥
It inspired me to think of this challenge this week.

My challenge this week for the CCEE Stampers 1943 is
'Porch in the Fall."
  Think leaves, pumpkins, rocking chairs, autumn wreaths on the door, décor. 
  Let's create a card with a fall porch in mind or use fall colors.
And here is my humble card this week ↓

I've used the gorgeous stamp from Impression Obsession
appropriately called Fall Porch.
The minute I saw it, my inner Joanna Gaines came out
and I started thinking soft colors for the wood frame doors,
shiplap on the exterior of the home,
the sweet kitty and pup laying in the warm afternoon sunshine!
And GOD BLESS the man who took off his work boots and
left them outside :)

Isn't this the most amazing stamp!
I'd love to give this a try using watercolors.

Make sure to check out the Design Team cards ~
they hit the ground running!
Their cards are simply GORGEOUS!
You can see them here on the CCEE Stampers blog.

I'll enter my card into:  Impression Obsession:  Harvest Treats (pumpkin)

Thanks so much for your visit!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
