Technically we have summer for about another month, but I've noticed the leaves are already starting to change. Considering that I live in California, and we don't normally have much of a Fall, this is pretty remarkable to me. My backyard is already covered in fallen leaves from our oak trees, and this morning I noticed maple leaves skittering on the sidewalk out front from our neighbor's tree. Maybe this year we will get a real Fall -- a girl can hope! :-)
Seeing all those lovely, multi-colored, fallen leaves put me in the mind to do some Fall crafting. I am working hard to get our older Fall digis into the store for those who might be of similar mind, but we do have some new Fall digis for you to choose from. Here is a card that I made with one of those sets, "Rustic Leaves." I used the pre-colored images on this one. As you know, I love to color, and sometimes when I use pre-colored images, I feel like I'm cheating, but then I remember that I colored the pre-colored images, so it's all good -- LOL! The sentiment I used is also included in the set, and reflects one of the guiding principles of my life: no matter how tough things get, no matter how many tragedies we face -- like the symbolic falling of an apparently healthy leaf from a tree -- God never falls, and never fails. That keeps me going every day!
On that thought, which I hope encourages you as much as it does me, I wish you a happy day and a wonderful weekend! Oh, and don't forget that we have a FREEBIE at the bottom of THIS POST for you to play with. If you use it, we'd love to see what you make, so please be sure to share!
