The theme for this week’s CAS-ual Fridays challenge is “Inspired by Autumn.”
And yesterday, on the first official day of Autumn, we went on our annual hike in the local canyon. If you’re looking for Autumn (which of course, I AM), I am happy to report that IT IS HERE WHERE WE ARE!! And I have the photos to prove it. 😉
And here is my sweet little family at one of the lookout spots:
I love this annual hike we have – such a fun family tradition centered around what I consider to be the absolute best and most beautiful time of the year. It just doesn’t get any better than that – a perfect life moment. 😉
Well, I suppose my card for the challenge turned out a little more on the ‘drab’ side – compared to all the gorgeous Autumn color in those photos! But I can’t complain, because it only took me about 10 minutes to complete it – LOL. And I actually am happy with it.
Very, very simple here. I thought that the Love & Marriage tree would be cool to use, so I stamped it onto the white cardstock using PTI Soft Stone ink. The sentiment is from the Vintage Picnic stamp set, in PTI Classic Kraft ink. Then I added the little arrow/heart image to the trunk in PTI Melon Berry ink. A little Rustic Cream Button Twine finished it off at the bottom.
Again, I apologize for my lack of photographing-of-white-things skills. I wish I had time to work on that, but we are in full lessons mode already, and I’m actually pretty lucky to be getting all this creativity and blog time in, as it is!
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
