Fall is Coming

I’m keeping the faith — Summer is almost over and Fall is coming.  It was in the upper 90s here today, but the weatherman says a cold front is coming to North Texas.  Highs in the 70s and 80s over the next few days may not exactly sound like Fall, but hey, it sounds pretty darn good to me.

When I saw that The Paper Players had a Fall-themed challenge this week, I knew I wanted to play.  Plus, it has “y’all” in the title — perfect for a Texan, right?

So I pulled out my Fall Fest and For All Things stamp sets and coordinating Fun Fall Framelits dies and got to work.

Hello Fall Colors — Monday Montage #26

Monday Montage Banner -- October

Here we go with another Monday Montage blog hop!  There are ten of us participating, and you can follow along by clicking on the “next” buttons at the end of each post.

We are in the midst of the dog days of Summer here in Texas (think triple digits).  I have all of these new toys from the upcoming Holiday catalog, and it’s so hard to find the motivation to make Fall and Christmas themed projects when it is so hot.  However, we got a little rain yesterday afternoon, and it cooled the temperatures down into the 70s, so I was able to pull out some Fall-themed supplies.

Hello Fall Colors

I’ve used some of the new Fall dsp called Color Me Autumn.  I do love these colors.  Fall is my favorite season of the year.  I love the excitement of back to school, college football season, being able to comfortably exercise outdoors again, and getting to wear sweaters.  And of course, I love cooler temperatures after the 100 degrees days of August.

Hello Fall Colors Close UpThe stamp set I used is called For All Things.  I also used some of the new gold buttons and the Kraft card stock, which is really terrific stuff.

You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog now.  She is such a talented and fabulous stamper — you’ll love her creations.  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can hop on over to the sweet and amazing Wendy Weixler’s blog.  Either way, jut make sure you work your way through all of the other nine blogs.
