Inky Paws Challenge #81! I ♥ Fall!

Hello and happy Monday!
It's the beginning of a fresh new week and a new Inky Paws Challenge and almost a new season! Fall starts Friday and this Inky Paws Challenge is all about fall ♥

I used the Fall-ing For You stamp set and the Falling Leaves stencil from Newton's Nook Designs  for this one. I adore that sentiment (that stamp set was on my wishlist for the last year and then this year I also found it on a decorative sign at Michael's and snapped it up so now I can't wait to decorate for fall in November!) and I decided to frame the sentiment in tiny leaves. I did some ink blending with my Distress Oxides and then stamped the individual leaves over the blended color transitions (yellow to orange, orange to red, red to purple...) and then cut out what seemed like a billion tiny little leaves (and then I decided to fussy cut even more leaves out for next Monday's card!). I colored and cut out those sweet little pumpkins and assembled my wreath on some rustic cream cardstock around my sentiment. I did some more ink blending on my background with the Falling Leaves stencil and then put everything together. I finished it off with some pretty gold splatters ♥

The hurricane missed us last week thankfully, but it looked bad for a few days, Bree's school closed on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday so she still has not had a full week of school yet, hopefully the weather and the universe will cooperate and she can have 5 full (well, full-ish, she has a doctors appointment on Thursday that I'll have to pull her out of school for...) days of school this week!

Is anybody ready for me to start sharing Christmas cards yet? I have a whole batch from last year that I haven't blogged yet and all of the new releases are just begging to be used! 99 days until Christmas! ♥

Have a great day and please join us for this challenge, as usual you could win a $20 store credit for the Newton's Nook Designs Online Store if you link up to this challenge!
