Fall is in the Air

Wow!!!  How quickly we went from 80* degree temperatures to having snow in our backyards.  Don't get me wrong, I love having the snow.  But can't we just enjoy Fall/Autumn first.

I apologize for not posting last weekend.  My hands seemed to be a little tied up with our Granddaughter.  With the snow arriving early on the roads, it's going to get harder to visit with her.  So we've been trying to spend as much time with her as possible.

With all said, here is today's feature.


Orange cardstock (DCWV Fall stack) - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
White cardstock - 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Yellow cardstock (DCWV Fall stack) - 4" x 5 1/4"
White cardstock - 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
Green cardstock (DCWV Fall stack) - 3 3/4" x 5"
White cardstock - 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"

I cut my basket out of the doodlecharms cricut cartridge at 2".  I added brown brads to the basket and used my black zig pen to outline.  I then cut all my leaves out from the same cartridge at 1".  I inked each leaf with Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" ink and layered them to back of the basket.  I adhered the basket to card with foam tape.  Adhered some of the leaves to the front of the basket with the same foam tape.  I punched the bottom of the white cardstock with an EK punch.  This same punch was used for the inside of the card (see below).  Orange ribbon was wrapped around some of the layered cardstock before adhering all to the main card.  Finally, I used some glitter glue to add dots to the upper corners.

I left the inside blank, so I can stamp my sentiment later.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend.
