CFC19 - Happy Autumn

Fall is coming in fast here in the Northeast!  I do love it though...........because.......it will be.........PUMPKIN SEASON!!!!!!!!  Now - if you thought I had a Nutella addiction............my pumpkin addiction is pretty bad too!!  I really think this year I'm going to have to make some pumpkin baked goods.  I did two years ago - not sure what happened last year....but I'm already having cravings typing up this post!!

I played along with the CAS-ual Fridays CFC#19 - which was to paper piece on your Fall-themed clean and simple card.  Easy enough!



And boy - do I mean EASY!  I took a piece of DCWV paper for my background, cut it to card size, then stamped a Friskars pumpkin on another piece from their Harvest Gathering paper pack.  A simple sentiment and some twine and I had these cards made!

I love the subtle leaves on the background paper!

I have a few more fall themed cards for the rest of the week!  See ya again soon :)


Thanks for your visit!

This is so pretty, love the paper you used on the pumpkin and the background. Hmmm....guess I will have to make some of my MIL's pumpkin bread soon, you have me craving it. Have a great day.

Simple, pretty, and just perfect for fall! Great idea to paper piece the pumpkin and love the use of twine on fall cards.
We're still smack dab in the middle of summer - or at least it feels like it. Hoping cooler temps get here soon.

Love the fall colors! If you find any great pumpkin recipes, pass them along. I was never much of a pumpkin fan, but my husband is and I am always looking for new things to bake for him.

Oooh, I love fall! And love everything pumpkin, too! Can't believe I haven't been to Starbucks for a Pumpkin Spice Latte yet. Think I'm just waiting for it to cool down a bit first. :) I truly adore this card, Maria! Such a stunning design. Really, really love the classic, clean lines. You are amazing, my friend!

I am soooo craving pumpkin baked goods too! I was going to try to make pumpkin chocolate chip muffins this week end but I ran out of time.

Your card is fabulous. I might have to CASE you to make some single layers cards. Great paper piecing too!

Both winners. Love the colour combo and the jute looks just so nice.
