Fall is my most favorite time of year!



I love Fall. I love the cool, crisp mornings, the warm afternoons and the chill in the evenings that make me want to cuddle under a blanket with a good book and cup of hot tea. The colors are so amazing here in West Virginia. As some of you know, I am a Colorado native and my heart will always be there. The changing of the Aspens is so spectacular - but then we moved to WV and the colors are truly amazing. The golds, reds and oranges are so vibrant! This is a picture I took in our old neighborhood. I am sure it doesn't capture the beauty I am describing to you.


I also have a card to share with you. This is my very first House Mouse card. Of course I bought my stamp from the "mean, old nasty Dick" at HM Stamps! Haha! He signed one of his recent email to his customers that way and I'm sure it made everyone laugh, because I don't think he could pull off mean and nasty with any amount of effort. Great guy, great customer service.
This is for a swap that is due soon, I just finished it. Tell me what you think. Oh, and I think my picture is better, lighting wise - it's fuzzy but I had already shared that my particular model of Kodak EasyShare doesn't have a close up mode. Let me know what think!! I likey those comments!!
I used House Mouse cater-mouse, I colored him with my Stampin' Markers (Kimmie, are you proud?), I had to try the Cami's Trifold Card that Kimmie featured on her blog recently and I found the tutorial on SCS. My paper is from SEI (love their products)! I also used the Marvy Giga Scalloped circle punch, or is that Mega - whichever one is bigger, and my Coluzzle circle template.
I do wish the picture was clearer for you to see this adorable little guy - including his icky fingers and toes. I had a lot of fun making this card. I hope you like it, too.

Hey, I recognize that paper! Boy is that cool feeling!

Adorable card. I love your blog. I was hoping for a little more reassurance that my kids would get out from under my feet sometime soon, though. ;-) Sigh.
