Fall in love...

Happy everyday, it's Thursday everyone! Are you ready to 'fall in love' with a new TDS challenge? Because that's the theme!
I know so many people who enjoy the cooler weather, personally I love the colors of Autumn (orange in all different shades) and the "warmth" it brings: crock pot meals, jackets for the kiddos, bundling up to watch football games. Love love love it...
Here is my fall card made with last week's freebie:
If you haven't heard, The Digi Shack gives out a free image every Friday. The following week it is in the shop for $1. Be sure to check out the blog HERE for yours! I knew that I wanted to use this image because this is what I will be doing very soon in our backyard. ;)
I used one of the current sketches from Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Here is a closer peek at the deets of this card:
I wanted it to have a very home-y feel to it, so I used faux stitching and different patterns.
Last year I fell in love (there's the theme again!) with this DP from PTI and was so fortunate to receive it in a Hostess Appreciation swap over at SCS. Thank you Mama Jacki, After a year I am finally bringing myself to use it!
This is one of my favorite sentiment sets from SU as it has all 4 seasons. Do you know the difference between Fall and Autumn? I learned that there is none! Fall is the term that Americans use, Autumn is what Europeans prefer. I googled it one day out of curiosity.

Now come on by and join us at the Shack! Link your card HERE on the blog, and be sure to check the blog tomorrow for your new freebie as well. There is also a fabulous sale going on in the shop right now, click HERE for the penny pinching details.

--->Before I go, I just wanted to explain a little something. I was extremely excited with yesterday's post and all that has gone on this week. I truly hope it didn't come across as arrogant! My DD taught me so much during her chemotherapy treatments that it's important to celebrate more than it is to complain. Too often misery loves company...I say it's time for happiness to be contagious. ;)
And with that said, have a wonderful Thursday everyone!
*Love and Aloha*

Beautiful card Joni! The colors are so warm and rich. Love them.

Congratulations to you all around (yesterday's post) and I don't think anyone would think of you as arrogant.

You arrogant? NEVER! You totally deserved to "brag" :)

What a beautiful Fall card, Joni :) You have much of the same weather we have so it's hard to think "Autumn" when it's so warm and delicous outside! But you have done this image justice with your lovely card!
