Happy Fall !
I LOVE fall ! Cool, crisp days with no humidity; opening the house to let in fresh air; colorful leaves on the trees against the bright blue skies; apple picking and apple pie making; attending car cruises and festivals =)
I imagine someone has made a card like this already..... It is inspired by the numerous crafts projects I've seen (and some that I've completed) over the years. I entered it into the soshelli.com Fabulous Fall challenge.
Happy Fall !
