Ok, here is #3

I love the look of falling leaves in the autumn, just not piling up in my yard! These leaves are so much prettier and involve less clean up and raking. And, repeated stamping gives you a nice piece of patterned paper to use. This is a great way to practice your coloring techniques, too, because each leaf is different and you can get creative with it. What could be better?

Well, I'll tell you what I REALLY like about this card: the font for the sentiment. I used to have a very similar font on my old PC, but I could not get it to transfer to our Mac. I was seriously pouting over that sad news. But now I have stamp sentiments with this font and I am so happy!!!

I'm making this short, just in case you are heading to another *sneak peek*. Have a great day and stop back by tomorrow!

What a beautiful card - I love it(love it love it)! I remember all that N VA raking very, very well - I could have easily lost several children in the piles of leaves. I remind myself it is good for the abs and arms, LOL!

BTW, what color brown did you use for the acorns? they are rich but not too dark - gorgeous! thanks!
