Autumn Blessings


This time of year in Seattle is always a little strange weather-wise. It's always very cold in the morning, so we layer layer layer, but then by the afternoon the sun is out and it's blazing hot, so then we peel away the layers! But regardless of the temperature the leaves are still changing, the pumpkin spice lattes are available and my favorite time of year has arrived! It's also my sweet friend, Roxane's favorite season and that's why she chose "Anything Fall" for this month's sisterhood of the traveling cards theme. To go along with that theme I chose to use items from October Afternoon (fitting for our fave season, eh?). It always seems when I sit down to make a card that there's a million possiblities. I fiddled around with this one for awhile and then settled on my card for today. Thanks for popping over today and Happy Thursday!

Such a cute card! The weather has been wonky lately, lol...guess we're still trying to hold on to summer a bit. :)

Ahh! I really love this soothing card Kadie! It's got the perfect combination of patterned paper and there you go again with those cool banners! :D I'm happy all over now!

We have had some funny weather our way too. It was hot and humid last night and we've had nothing but rain and cool mornings up until then! Weird!

We have the same weather here in WI too. Cold and foggy in the morning and hot in the afternoon...
Your card is so beautiful, Kadie! Love the fall feel to it!

Sad to say the weather is no better here in Ohio. It's like Spring with so much humidity and these temps.
Love the papers on this one, Kadie! Cute!
