Tomorrow is the first day of Fall. The leaves in this area are just starting to turn. Fall is a beautiful time in Northern New York because the leaf colors are always so bright and beautiful. Occasionally, we have a dull Fall because of the weather but for the most part it is gorgeous. I never know why it is dull sometimes. Some say it is because there is too much rain. Others say it is because it is too dry. I think Mother Nature and other powers above just decide that Fall will be dull and there is no rhyme or reason to it.
Last year we went to Denver in September. One day we took a trip up to the mountains. It was a guided tour because we didn’t have a car so we went with some other people. There was a woman in our group that constantly talked about seeing the yellow Aspens. “I hope they are yellow now.” “I hope we can see the Aspens.” “Where are the Aspens?” I am thinking to myself who cares about yellow Aspens? We have bright yellows, bright oranges and bright reds. Just yellow trees? How boring! Then I found out she was from Texas. Apparently trees don’t turn yellow (or any color other than brown) in Texas in the Fall so yellow was very exciting to her. It made me realize how lucky we are. I started pointing out the Aspens to her and she was so excited.
I made this Fall card using the stamp sets called Colorful Seasons for the leaves and Hello Friend for the sentiment. I love big sentiments so you are going to see this one a lot! The splatters are from Timeless Textures. I felt like the card needed something although after adding the splatters, I am not so sure it did.
Beautiful card Susan. Yes, I lived in Texas for 3 years and was desperate to see nature in all it’s colors. I bet that fall will be very pretty on you lake!
Pretty card Susan. I also love the Hello sentiment. It can be used for birthdays, thinking of you , and for no reason at all . Fall is my favorite time of the year.
Susan, this is beautiful! I love all the fall colors – and the splatters look great. I think they add a special something to the card.
One day I’ll get back to the East coast for fall – but we do have lovely colours here, as well (just a little later). Fall colours are my favourite – and they look gorgeous on your card, Susan! Thanks for sharing 🙂
