Fall Blessings

It's finally raining here today....
the leaves are dropping and not from fall weather but from the drought.....
I am loving listening to the gently falling rain today....
 
 
I have a pretty fall card to share with you....
On one of my last trips to Joan's Gardens I picked up a gorgeous Cheery Lynn Designs die
called "Fall Leaf Doily"....
it is such a beautiful die when cut....
I painted it with my Twinkling H2O's, giving it a shimmery look
The card is 4 1/2 x 4 1/2" square...I added a little hummingbird to it
which is also a Cheery Lynn die
I mounted it on a gorgeous foil, flower print paper....
 
The challenge this week at Joan's Gardens is

  • Include Leaves on your card
  • Fall colors
  • Tree and/or bird
  • You must use a product sold at Joan's Gardens. Also, mention that you are doing the card/project for Joan's Gardens Challenge.
  • and

AWESOME Autumn creation Diane! I guess I must have bought the 'matching' die to this one ... I don't recall seeing the 'doily' die ... hmmm! Either way ... this is just beautiful and I love how you colored the leaves ... BEAUTIFUL creation!
