Happy Fall

My grandson sings 
(to the tune of London Bridge
"All the leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down.  
All the leaves are falling down.  It is Autumn." 
My apologies if the tune sticks in your brain all day. 

We aren't too enamored with the falling leaves at our house 
because it means a lot of raking, sweeping, mulching, etc.
 I do like making fall cards with all the rich colors.

(Left side of the card wasn't laying flat when I took the shot, which makes the border look crooked.  Sorry!)

For this card I used a rubber stamp I got from Great Impressions 
and the current sketch from the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog.
The image was stamped 4 times on different colors of CS,
 because I wanted to do the paper piecing.

This card is being entered in the following challenges:
Great Impressions September Challenge - Fall Colors
Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge - Fall/Autumn Colors
Creative Craft Challenges 2 - Challenge #19 - Use ribbon
ABC Challenge #45 - Fall
Craft Your Passion Challenge #180 - Autumn/Fall Colors

I may have to have a go at the sketch after all. Thank you for the inspiration - I love that little mouse - and your paper piecing is wonderful! I so enjoy getting your emails each day. Have a great day, Debi!
