The final month of summer has felt more like the first month of autumn -- we've had cool, crisp weather and blue skies. The trees are even starting to turn, so it seems like an appropriate time to start breaking out the autumn-themed stamps!

My first thought on images to go with this sentiment would be a turkey, but since I was fresh out of poultry, my next thought was this scarecrow who also appears well-stuffed.

For my second autumn card, I had to go with my favorite part of Fall -- the leaves. This sentiment is beautiful on its own, so I used a simple layout from Unscripted Sketches #22 and highlighted it with mini prima leaves:

Wishing you a beautiful Autumn stuffed with happiness!

What great colors for fall! Great coloring and layout of your scarecrow card. The blue panel on your 2nd card makes the sentiment and leaves pop! Lovely!
