Falling Leaves – This challenge was actually inspired by an upcoming Bridal Shower I was asked to make a card for. A great theme for this time of year! So today’s challenge is to incorporate leaves into our projects — any type of leaves, any type of card or project — let’s just see some beautiful Falling Leaves this week as we transition into fall mode!
Anyone is welcome and invited to play! SCS Keyword is ssnotime155 for those who upload at SCS. There is no time limit. You can play this challenge anytime at all. The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun!!!
With a new month under way we say goodbye to our August Guest Designer, Charlene Driggs from Paper and Ink Playground. Thank you SO MUCH, Charlene, for hanging out with us all last month.

And here’s my card for today:
For my leaves I used an older Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, punching the bottom with a Martha Stewart Punch. I have always loved the look of an embossed sheet of white cardstock and I love to let it stand on its own. I added a strip of Webster’s Pages Fabric Flower Bloomers with Scor-Tape, a Silk Bow in Moss (made on the Bow Easy), and adorned it with one Kaiser Pearl. The cardstock is SU Old Olive.
A note on greens: My 100% Silk Ribbon in MOSS is a much better match to SU Old Olive than is the Olive Silk Ribbon.
And here’s the inside — sorry for the blurry photo — it’s been one busy day (week) and this is as good as it’s getting tonight — LOL!!! This card was made for an autumn bridal shower and I thought this sentiment was perfect! It’s from Romantic Sentiments by JustRite and fits the 1 5/8″ and 2″ round stampers. (I do have the entire JustRite line in stock) I used VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. Just a quick card, and I do enjoy the combination of clean lines and shabby roses — fun!!!
Thanks so much for stopping in and PLEASE play along this week if you want to be in the running for a 2 week guest spot the end of September! It’ll be a fun way to get me off the hook for neglecting to find a guest this month!!! Have a great Labor Day Weekend everyone! See you real soon!
