Grateful For Fall

I have a "hate~love" relationship with August!!!  I love the feel of the air, even though it is extremely still has that "feel" of whats to come...I LOVE that!!  August also means that it's almost the end of summer here in Michigan....fall will come and go and next thing you know its cold and dreary...we can go days without sun...I hate that...guess I had better enjoy it while I can!!

This morning I was thinking I have all these SU wheels, I love them, but never seem to use them much, so I pulled out my "Bright Blessings" wheel, ran it thru "Old Olive" ink, then punched out 3 scallop circles with my SU extra large scallop circle punch...kind of neat how none of the "punching" was planned, it just worked out!  Because I punched 3 circles, I decided to make 3 fall cards!!  I will list the supplies used under each card...all supplies used are Stampin' Up!...if you are interested in buying any of these goodies, just let me know and I can help you out.  I think I am going to have a "wheel Wednesday".....every Wednesday I will create something with a "wheel"...lets see how long that lasts (first I have to "remember" to do it...)..LOL!!

OH Diane, these cards are awesome! Great fall colors and I love what you've done with the wheel. We won't feel fall in the air until sometime in October...about the time you get your first!
