There is nothing like a leaf covered lawn to signal the arrival of fall. As my son and I sat on our deck, we truly realized the meaning of fall as many of the trees in our yard shared their bounty with us by falling to the ground.
After awhile I asked him to get the push broom to clear the deck while I prepared lunch. He came to the kitchen door to tell me that it was a losing battle. He said, "Mom, that tree is fighting against me." As soon as he had one half cleared, the other became covered again. I made him keep going anyway.
I got an awesome Fiskars rake at Tuesday Morning along with one of the leaf collection thingy...it is GREAT. If I can find some pics I will post them. Makes raking and bagging leaves a breeze.
The next day we filled about 5 bags of leaves and called it a day. The wind and rain has since brought more leaves our way. The lawn is now a jeweled splendor of nature's hues. I just love it. Here are a couple of more variations of the cards I made in my YT Vee-dio.
Happy Fall EVERYONE!!!! I know it has been awhile, but I have posted some vids on my YouTube channel so be sure to check them out: The Couture Crafter.
On to some of the cards I shared in my latest Vee-dio. This way you will get a chance to see them up close. The stamp is an Inkadinkado cling and the leaf punch is from EK Success. The embossing is the CB folder Musical Flourish. (i think)
These were done solely by using distress inks as the medium. If you see a bit of sparkliness, that is from my Sakura stardust pens. Love those.
The one leaf on this one was covered with some of the Martha Stewart clear glitter. Really like it as an accent. As always, thanks for stopping by and keep inking.
