Autumn Leaves

How is your week progressing? Since I have had Mondays off it seems like Tuesday is the new Monday for me. When I go back into work it just takes me all day to get back up to speed again. Tuesday can be really frustrating. We had an all department meeting today which took about 2 hours out of the day since our building doesn't have a room big enough for everyone we have to walk across campus to another building with bigger rooms. Seems like it takes a big chunk out of the day.
The nights have been cooler around here. The days have been pleasant and sunny. No rain for a while. Of course we just planted grass seed out at Baby Creek so it's not getting any moisture to help it grow. We could use some rain. But the cooler nights prompted this card.


The sentiment is the digi of the month from DeeDee's Digis called Leaf Your Cares Behind. I just love that name for the stamp set. I used one of the sentiments in the set. It reminds me of being a kid. We'd spend hours playing in the leaves. I'm sure we were supposed to be raking them but I wonder how much work really got done. LOL!


I die cut the sentiment with MFT Cross Stitched Ovals. I inked the oval with distress inks: mustard seed, fired brick, mowed lawn, and spiced marmalade. I embossed the background with the Flourished embossing folder. It reminded me of the wind blowing. The patterned paper strip is Basic Grey. To embellish I added some sparkly leaf stickers. I rounded the corners at the bottom of the card.
I am entering these challenges:

We bought a new car tonight. It will take a couple days to get it as they have to bring it from another dealer. I got a twilight blue Outback. I'm excited about getting the car. I wanted to get used to it before the weather turns nasty. 
Hope your week is going well. I'm looking forward to a fast end to the week. Thanks for visiting me today. 

Hugs,

Donna

Oh this is so pretty, Donna! I really like how the sentiment piece is multi-colored, and those glittery leaves make such stand-out accents. It sounds like we had similar childhood experiences. Those leaves did eventually stay raked, though. ;-) Thanks so much for joining us again this month at Deedee's Digis!
