Fall is Here!

The weather this week has been wonderful! The leaves are starting to change, and there is a cool crisp breeze that blows all of the time. If you don't already know this I live at the edge of the Shenandoah National Park boundaries. The famous "Skyline Drive" is on the next mountain over from my house! We have bear that roam around the neighborhood, and many other kinds of wild-life. My house is surrounded by giant poplar trees that are so tall we can't have Direct TV or Dish Network! Sad, I know. Anyways, I think you get the picture, and as soon as the leaves really start to change I will be posting lots of pictures of the fall foliage around my house!
For this card I used the $1 Fall paper pack I bought at Target. The stamp set is by CTMH and it is called "Fall Splendor". I was thrilled to find that the colors in the paper pack match SU's new in-colors! I guess they really are "in". hehe. The satin ribbon was another super find that I bought at Big Lots, 10 yards for $1. They also had it in Kiwi Kiss, Pale Pink, and Very Vanilla. Today I am having an ingrown toenail on my right foot removed. It has been bugging me for over a year and I want to get it taken care of before it gets really bad. I am not a huge fan of needles so wish me luck. I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!!

It sounds lovely where you live! I'd love to see some photos. I like this card too! Great colors, and that ribbon is beautiful. I like the way you tied it. I hope you are feeling better after your toe procedure!
