Celebrate

Let's celebrate the first day of autumn!  We'll have to use our imagination a little bit as the weather still feels like summer.  The temperatures have been in the 90's and will continue to be the same for at least the near future.

The leaves on the trees did not get the memo that today is the first day of autumn. They are as green as can be with a rare slightly yellow or red leaf amongst them.

In honor of this special day, I made a Celebrate Autumn card. It took me a while to get the leaves on the wreath just right. I love my leaf punch. ♥

    1. Diane, the leaf punch is like a hole punch but the punch part makes the leaf shapes. You just put your paper in and push down - leaf shapes! xx

    1. Connie, thank you so much. It took me a long time to get them to not look bunchy. It's still not perfect but it's the best I can do before the adhesive dried.
