I Can Smell Autumn!!!!!

I Love FALL!!!!! I love the smell of Autumn, the leaves swirling all over, walking through the leaves and hearing the crunch of the leaves, going to a pumpkin patch and picking out my pumpkin to make pies and then smell the wonderful scent of the pies while baking!!!!! Create with TLC's wonderful images, "I Can Smell Autumn" Poem Word Art Vintage Image Transferdescribes EXACTLY how I feel!!!!   This is one of the newest sets at Create with TLC and it makes a quick and easy card and all I needed was embellishing with buttons from my stash no less with ribbon and a bow along with a few tulle fall leaves that someway had given to me- how easy is that??? AND I made three (3) cards on Wednesday just using that simple recipe with the being the second one I'm sharing today with the final card on Saturday as my Design Team Project for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge Blog with as always, ANYTHING GOES!

  • card is a size A card with rust-colored Recollection card stock
  • background is a gorgeous piece with acorns
  • Create with TLC "I Can Smell Autumn" Poem Word Art Vintage Image Transfer corners were rounded and chalked around the edges
  • buttons from JHB Buttons and pumpkin buttons from my wonderful stash - you ask just how many buttons I have - WELL, I have at least 8 tins of buttons not to mention a basket along with a jug with my great grandmother's!!!!!!
  • sentiment, "APPLE CIDER PUMPKIN PIE Autumn's Here My Oh My" had been a previous freebie from Create with TLC which was given rounded corners and chalked around the edges and placed on a scrap from the cover background 
  • added Darice Fall Satin ribbon on the one side and then tied another piece of that ribbon into a bow on top of my card
How was that for a quick and elegant card for Autumn - don't forget to start making your fall and Autumn cards as the first day of fall is September 23rd!!!
