Fall Inspiration

It's finally fall here in the desert! It rained yesterday which sent me into a fall baking tizzy, on top of fall house cleaning :) In between all of that, I was able to squeeze a quick card in for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday. It's all about priorities ;)


Every week, Flourishes picks a random winner, from the entries to win a store GC! For more info please visit their blog HERE
 Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge this week is this fall picture:


I just love front porches, don't you? Growing up, my Mom insisted every evening meal be eaten out in our back porch, during the summer weather. I cherish those wonderful memories and conversations :)




I used Flourishes "Seeds Of Friendship" and "Bee My Honey" stamp sets, colored in with Tombows. I used TCP Studios paper and bronze metallic cardstock, and I pulled out a decorative edge scissors to cute the edges of my CS. The ribbon is from American Crafts and the pearls are from KaiserCraft.


When I saw the inspiration photo, I thought of fall being harvesting time. But since I don't have Flourishes "Garden Fresh" or "Season of Thanks", I decided to start at the beginning. It all starts with seeds. If we don't plant anything, we don't reap our harvest :)
