Happy Fall, AGAIN! :D

Hi, everyone! It's LOOKING like fall out my window - leaves are starting to turn, and it is kinda gloomy, as it's been for almost two weeks. But the temperatures are still warm, and the hummingbirds are chasing around the back yard. :)

Thanks so much for the comments on yesterday's cards! I'm glad you liked them; I think everyone who had a chance to make them had fun, too. :)

Today, I'm going to show you ONE of the three cards from last night's FANCY FOLDS II class; it qualifies for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge this week, so it's going to be my SECOND entry. :D Three shots: the front, the card standing open, and a shot of the top down - it's a shutter card!

First, the recipe!

Card stock: More Mustard, Sahara Sand, Garden Green, Whisper White

Ink: Chocolate Chip, White craft

Stamp sets: Autumn Splendor, Simple Friendship, A Rose is a Rose

Accessories: Autumn Traditions DSP, heat tool, embossing buddy, white embossing powder, dimensionals

I really, really love how this one came together - and the way the three stamp sets' WORDS coordinated with the DSP and the leaf stamp!

Now, standing open:


And, finally, from an angle on top, so you can see how unique the fold is!

We had a really great time with class last night; this was the most difficult of all of them, just because of the decorating part. The actual CARD is surprisingly easy! :)

I'd love to hear what you think of this one. And be on the alert: I'll probably be posting blog candy soon, because the new counter just flipped over 10,000 hits! :) THANK YOU for being such a loyal follower (if you are); you keep me stampin'!! :)

Now, take the time to STAMP SOMETHING, would ya?!?!?

REALLY?? You used to live here? I am in Central Oregon, Madras to be exact :) It's about 2 hours south of Portland. My best friend from college lives up near the gorge in Pendleton. Although I hate all the Junipers and sagebrush (being the "high desert" area) I have to say that we have some of the best weather! Hardly rains... but we still get some fun snow in the winter. Had a couple heat waves this summer where it was over 100, but then I think most people in the U.S. had the same didn't they? I see pictures of Kentucky and Tennessee and think it's just gorgeous over there. Would love to have plush green grass and a garden! We tried one of those for the first time this year. Of course it had to be "above-ground" as our ground is full of rock! We watered and watered, but didn't do too well. Out of a dozen different kinds of veggies, all we produced were the zucchini! Which I made bread with--YUM! :) So where are you?
