Happy Autumn to you

I can't believe how fast November is going.  Maybe it's just that I have too many things to do this year and feel overwhelmed.  Since both of my kids are gone there isn't anyone around to help....I actually hired someone to do my yardwork because I have so many trees and leaves.  I had quite a few of them cut down last week because they were over hanging the house and I was worried a storm would break a branch on the roof, and I couldn't climb up there to get it off.  Also, I have problems with the rain gutters being full of leaves.  For this card the twist was leaves and pumpkins.  I used an image from Doodle Pantry, and embossed leaves and well as had leaves on the die cut Spellbinder.  The image has curves/swirls in the vine as well as the pearls I added to the bottom.  The sentiment is from TLC, Create

Hi Lisa, Lynn, sounds like a good idea that you hired some help. We are empty nesters too - I also miss the help. =) Your card is adorable! I love the fun layout and those spellbinder dies are perfect for this time of year. Your image is beautiful - of course, it's Doodle Pantry. =) Thanks so much for joining us over at the Doodle Pantry "any digi" challenge. Good luck to you and enjoy the free stamp set from Laurie. It is a fun set! I hope to see your creativity back again!
