Ah! The Crisp Air of Autumn!

Don't you just love when you wake up and know that it's Fall? Maybe not technically on the calendar yet, but by the air? There is a freshness about it that just wakes up all of my senses. That happened here last week. It was as if September came, and away went the humidity-laden 100 degree temperatures.  If you are not there yet, and are still in the throes of summer, imagine it! It will come soon~!

This week we are going to use the rich hues of Autumn to inspire us in our designs. I am not going to specify colors, because Autumn colors are different in different parts of the world -- but whatever colors you think of when you hear the word "Autumn" or "Fall" - use those! And for our image we will be using this cute set of FLOWERS:

Today we have a Guest Designer with us! Please welcome Lucianna Dilsaver of Dilsaver Designs! Here is Lucianna's challenge card for this week:

I'm SO ready for the DRY cooler weather! In fact I think I'm going to go ahead and pull out my autumn decor, because these colors have me so ready to start the season! Great job with the samples ladies! :)

Hey guys! Great cards this week...sorry if mine is a little personal...September, fall, those flowers...they all have a very sentimental meaning for me...but don't worry, I am happy! Can't wait to see the rest of the submissions!

Very fun, thanks for letting me play!


Melissa said...

This is my first time to play along. I hope I did everything right...I don't have the flowers, but used a Hambo image I had on hand. Hope that's okay for this time?! :)

Monica Hunter said...

That's perfectly okay Melissa -- ANY Hambo image works! I'm so glad you played along with us this week! :)
