Fall is here

Fall is here and it seems that the leaves are turning already.  I love collecting beautiful leaves and putting them in bowls in my house until my allergies kick in and I have to take them back outside.  As I was doing my daily walk today with my friend Jean, I spotted a beautiful leaf and stopped to pick it up. She told me of a great idea she had seen where you gather up fall leaves and send them to a friend who lives in a place where the seasons don't change.  Here in SW Ohio we can get 2 or 3 seasons in the same week!  So today's card is a changing seasons card to celebrate Fall.  It is one layer, sponged using a mask and then run thru the Big Shot with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  I used the stamp sets, French Foliage and Trust God,  two of my favorites.  My husband looked at it and said it was high quality art, so I decided to send it to his high school friend Mary who lives in Florida and will miss all of the beauty of a SW Ohio Fall.
