Celebrate Fall Blooms


Brrr!!!  Is it as cold where you are as it has been here?  I'm normally a hot natured person, but lately I'm FREEZING with the cooler weather.  I'm a shorts/t-shirt person even during the fall, but I've been in pants, long sleeve & sweatshirts this week.

I'm up early, on my day off, getting my post up and hoping to stamp for a few hours before I go take a little nap.  Unfortunately, I'm stranded at home without a car as my reliable ol' car decided it needed a vacation for a few days.

Today over at Blogger's Challenge, Lisa has challenged us with Fall Blooms.  When Fall blooms around here, that means the leaves are changing colors and littering my lawn for clean-up.  I was amazed that last weekend we did some major lawn work and last night when I was out there, all the acorns from the trees are ALL over the place.  The squirrels are definitely happy with the lazy work they will have to do!


For this card, I pulled out one of my Clear & Simple Stamps sets, Icons I, which has this cute leaf stamp in it.  I daubed some of my Distress Stains on my mat, spritzed it with some water and laid my card stock on top of it.  Then I stamped the image in a grid pattern using the Card Positioning Systems sketch this week.

Hope you will join us this week at Blogger's Challenge by linking your Fall Blooms creation here.
