Fall is here!

As you may know by now, I live in the sunny state of Florida. We don't experience the four seasons, but we do experience some of it. One thing I have come to realize living here for almost 15 years is that I do like the autumn/fall season. It is a nice break from the scorching, humid heat that is summer for us. And it takes you by surprise! One afternoon you walk out of the air conditioned office building where you work and all of a sudden you realize that it is not muggy outside... and there might even be a nice breeze caressing your face coming out of nowhere. Then it hits you: fall is here! Again this is Florida, the heat comes and goes. But the nights get cooler and more comfortable to be outside, and you may even be able to start opening your windows. I guess you can see at this point why I really, really do like fall! Here is the card I made for the season I'm enjoying so much right now. I hope you enjoy it too!

    Anyhoo, glad your Fall has arrived and brought you some relief. This card is just too darn cute and definitely represents Fall perfect. Love how you've done a rocker card and your coloring is fantastic.
