Give Thanks

>> Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Hi Everyone,

Whenever I go on vacation, I always lament about how I wish my home was more like (insert said vacation spot here).  It could be anything from the beach to a concrete jungle big city, whatever, I'm always wishing for something that my home doesn't have.  Except in October.  It's glorious here in northeast Ohio.  The weather is usually cool and crisp, and I love, love, love the fall colors! I don't even have to travel far from home to see the beauty.  Look...

This is a photo of the empty land next to the store where I grocery shop, and it's only around the corner from my house.  Super pretty, right?

And this scenic overlook is only a few miles from my home.  

Seeing all of this around me, inspired me to grab the new Autumn Leaf Pile (575F) stamp and design today's fall card.  I stamped that first, the Single Fall Tree next, and then nestled the Give Thanks Bible Verse (585E) next to them.  I then die cut this and colored the leaves in all of the gorgeous fall colors with my Copic markers. 

The background was created using the Fall Leaf  with Acorn stamp and I made a strip of patterned paper using the Woven Plaid.  Before I attached my image panel, I added an embossed, die cut fall leaf on top of my background.  It added that extra pop of color that my card needed.

Thanks for visiting today and be sure to visit the DRS Designs store and check out all the fun new stamps!

What a perfect fall card! I love the single tree next to the pile of leaves - it's like they were made to go together!! Beautiful photos too - I'm picturing the overlook in full fall must be stunning!

What beautiful scenes! How wonderful you have such a pretty site right by your grocery store. I drive by some pretty scenes every day but we lack the real depth of color since we are so heavily covered in pine (so covered that the area is called Pine Level - lol). Love your card - the colors are beautiful and I love how you made your bg (but then I always love your bgs). Many hugz!
