Autumn Blessings

Autumn is one of my absolute favorite seasons! I love the crisp air, the beautiful leaves; everything!! I realized that I haven't really made many seasonal cards lately, so I decided to make a card inpspired by some photos that I took of Rowan on Friday. I really like the unexpected color combination as well.



I started out by using "Botanicals" from SU! and the two sentiments are from this set. Botanicals is one of my favorite sets for so many reason. I chose to make one of the smaller stamps the focal point. Because it is so small, I decided to use it twice to give it a bigger impact. They are colored with copic and prismacolor markers. I was really thrilled to find a brown button that said the word "somewhere" on it because it reminded me of the song that says "somewhere...thinking of you". My mind has drawn a blank as to which exact song it is, but I keep singing that part in my mind.

The rest is pretty straightforward, but I hope you are all enjoying this time of year as much as I am. Before I go, I must share with you my muse! Isn't he the best kind of inspiration! He is so wonderful and yummy and juicy and yes....I could just eat him up! He is such a delight! Can you believe that he will be ten months old on the 20th? Time has a way of slipping by so quickly! I am trying to cherish every minute of him!





























Thanks for fluttering by!

Absolutely precious. The card and the muse. I love when simple things get you going on making amazing crafts.
Yes, I can believe Rowan will be 10 months soon. But that is only because my little guy is onle a week or so behind yours. Mine will be 10 months on my bday (Dec. 2nd) I can't believe we are going to be planning a 1 year birthday party soon.
