One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Autumn Cards

I had sponged a lot of distress inks onto a piece of paper and die cut all the leaves from Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves and Small Stitched leaves.  These were leftover from another card I made.  OMG, I noticed my dashed white line did not go all the way up the side...I fixed it, so the card is alright, the picture is NOT, sorry about that!
I do love Fall when the world is just full of all those awesome colors, the yellows, golds, oranges, reds and greens, I LOVE IT!  And I must admit to loving the shorter days and even cooler or rainy ones because then I don't feel so guilty playing in the studio all day!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.


  1. Loving this beautiful Fall card Colleen! The colors are just gorgeous on your leaves...the leaves are actually starting to turn color here in Michigan and look just like your pretty ones!! We've got the rain here too, but none of the cooler weather yet...I'm ready!! :0)

  2. Ooozing fabulousness and sophistication here Colleen.
    I'm loving the Kraft panel and such elegant leaves and colours.
