Happy Fall

Hello my blog friends.  Are you having a wonderful week so far?  We should finally be cooling down a bit here.  I am so looking forward to that.  My poor son is covered in mosquito bites and his allergies are horrible here.  I have a sinus headache myself right now.  Anyway...I realized that I haven't made any fall cards yet.  I had better get them out quick.  I colored this jar of fall fillers a couple weeks ago and wasn't happy how it turned out.  I decided to go ahead and try to use.  I figured maybe it would look better all put together.
I saw Michelle's new Christmas Jar filler set.  It is very cute.  I wasn't planning on ordering this release from PTI since nothing really caught my eye.  But I realized I don't have very many Christmas stamps and that Jar Filler set has a lot of possibilities for cute tags and such.  I used the sketch at Taylored Expressions to get me started.  She has some cute new stamps sets on her release too.  There can almost be too many choices sometimes. 
I am off to go check out the craft store and see if I spy any new goodies.  I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week.  I am going to try and make another card today.  I was dreaming of a card last night as I was trying to sleep.  Anyone else do that?  Or am I just crazy?  LOL

Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/Terracotta Tile, Rustic Cream, Ripe Avacado
Stamps: PTI/Friendship Jar Fall Fillers
DP: PTI/Green Tea Leaves, Bitty Dot Basics 2009
Copics: G21,G24,E31,E33,E37,YR07,Y17,R29,
Twine: PTI
Flower: Recollections
Lace: Wrights
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather

Heather.....your coloring is just wonderful. Love all the colors of fall and this is a beautifull card creation. Yes, I too lay in bed at night and just can't get to sleep until I finalize in my mind different ways to finish off a card. That's the best time to think.......nice and quiet and no distractions. Thanks again for all the info you gave me.
