Prickley Pear:  Hibiscus 2 clear set (sentiment), Pumpkin Clear Stamps Set 2 (leaf), Pumpkin Die (leaf)

I’ve been veering off into the land of Pinterest more often the past week or two.  It seems like I go days without visiting that place and then, all of a sudden, I’m visiting daily!  Fall colors are beginning to surface and, I must say, I am loving teal and brown together!  So much so, that I had to use it on today’s Prickley Pear creation!  Yes, summer isn’t over yet, but I’m beginning to see an occasional brown leaf tumble down around here!  I’m not quite ready to say I’m in the mood for autumn, but I have to say I’m enjoying the cool nights we’re having right now!

I embossed the Chocolate Chip cardstock (SU) using a Sizzix embossing folder by Tim Holtz & layered it on Island Indigo cardstock (SU).  I stamped and die cut three leaves and then popped them up with foam dots.  A fairly simple card.

I spent Saturday going through two bookcases full of papers, books and other miscellaneous.  I still need to take photos of the boys’ art work, but I’m feeling pretty good about what I accomplished!  Our office/four-seasons room now looks like it should…free of clutter & organized.  Just in time for a new school year to begin!

Have yourself a very happy Monday!  I’ll be back tomorrow with CASology’s new cue word and corresponding card creation!

    This is such an adorable card, Melissa! I really love the teal and brown combo and love the design with the leaves. The embossing adds a fabulous detail, and I love how you did the sentiment, too!
