Enjoy...this beautiful autumn day!

Happy Thursday!

Well, after many days of rain, the sun has returned!   Not complaining about the rain, we prayed for it and "it was good!"   Our grass was brown & crunchy most of the summer!   Some of our trees were even starting to change colors due to lack of water.   But today is a sunny, glorious autumn day....in celebration I made a quick card this morning!

I used a Fred She Said pre-colored image, Emma in the Leaves and combined it with this fun paper I purchased over the weekend!  (it was on clearance!)


Enjoy...this beautiful autumn day!
Stamps: FSS digital (Emma in the Leaves)
Paper: Me & My Big Idea dp
Other: MS border punch, Nesties,
