Hello! The theme for the most recent challenge over at Wee Memories is "Fall into Autumn." I absolutely LOVE everything about Autumn, so I just had to play along!

I also decided to use Jen Del Muro's most recent "Sketch For You To Try"----it's a super fun one!

Here's what I created:

The tree image is from DeNami Design, and let me tell you, I was in love with it the very moment I saw it!!! It's a bare tree, which is GREAT because it makes it so versatile! For this card I decorated it with a leaf image from DeNami Design's "Autumn Stamp Set" (a four-pack).

Here are some close-ups:

The sentiment is from "Friendship Jar Fall Fillers" (Papertrey Ink)! I love how it fits so perfectly in this little label I cut with my Spellbinder's Labels One. I added some twine for a rustic touch.

I also stamped some leaves on colored cardstock, cut them out, and popped them up on the card to add a little bit of dimension.

Are you seeing signs of Autumn in your neck of the woods? The aspen leaves are quickly turning golden here in the mountains and the nights are really chilly! It truly is BEAUTIFUL! Love it!

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone for all of the SWEET comments on my Cuddly Critters Blog Hop creations!! I hope you enjoyed hopping around and seeing all of the fabulous inspiration! I know I sure did!
