Thankful For You

I love everything Fall including this "Colorful Fall" inspiration photo over at Inspired By Challenge:

Gorgeous!!! Right?!?

Here's my take:

I'm really digging this color combo: Blackberry Bliss and Crushed Curry from Stampin' Up with Canyon Clay from Papertrey Ink. So rich and striking in real life.

The die is an oldie but goodie from Papertrey Ink called Mighty Oak. I die-cut the entire panel from each of the three leaf colors, so then I was able to mix and match the leaves to create three cards :) YAY! I get so excited when things work out like that! Ha!

Thanks for stopping by today! I truly appreciate it!

Two of our dear mountainhood friends recently sprung some exciting news on us---they hiked up to Arapaho Lake and got married!!! Just the two of them, their dog, a marriage certificate and a couple of rings :) We're super happy for them! So of course I wanted to make them a card for this incredibly special occasion.

Since all of this transpired on the second day of Autumn (my favorite season btw) I went for an Autumn theme. The Cozy Cup Coaster (The Greetery) was die-cut from Blackberry Bliss cardstock (Stampin' Up) which is a gorgeous, rich purple. (The background on the patterned paper is also a deep purple but it looks brown in the photo. Beautiful colors in person, I promise you! Ha!)

I was also inspired by this fantastic sketch over at Just Add Ink:

...and linking this up at the current Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge too:

Thank you so much for visiting!

Have a great day!
