Happy Fall Ya'll

After a long hot summer the first day of fall is finally here. Actual fall weather in the deep south starts much later than in other parts of the country. Even so, one can still feel the change in the season as the days are already shorter. And although it's still hot here, it's definitely cooler than it has been.

Here are my top 10 favorite things about fall:

1.  The fact that we can sit out on our deck in the afternoon without passing out from the heat or get carried away by mosquitos
2.  Alabama football
3.  Colorful leaves
4.  Dark nail polish
5.  Pumpkins
6.  Long sleeves
7.  Terracotta pots filled with mums
8.  Halloween
9.  Open windows
10. Chili and soups

Now on for today's fall themed card. I printed the C.C. Designs Sweet November Spindle Mossyrock digital image onto Bazzill Simply Smooth cardstock and then colored with Copic markers. The felt leaf was cut using a Cuttlebug die/embossing folder I picked up at Big Lots for $2. Love a bargain!

  2. This is as beautiful as the perfect fall day, the colors and papers are devine! LOVE how you've colored Spindle, she couldn't look any more like the fall fairy she is!
    Loved your Top Ten, couldn't help but chuckle at your #1, a picture of giant mosquitos instantly popped in my head, I think I've watched too many creature features on SyFy! ;)
