Happy Fall

The leaves are starting to change and fall here in NC...we aren't in full foliage yet, but there is a definite hint of it coming soon!  I made this card for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge which was to create a card/project using the colors of fall.  I had to add just a bit of Autumn Flower Soft to make the trees in full autumn foliage. I used the stamp sets Tree Silhouettes and Autumn Beauty.

The Scripture for the challenge was Ecclesiastes 3:1 and I just love that whole chapter of Ecclesiastes. There certainly is a purpose for everything... The verse in Ecclesiastes 3 that jumped out at me was vs.7 where is says: "A time to keep silence and a time to speak"...Oh my that is my trouble spot!   In  college, my best friend (who was similar in this area to me) gave me a little bookmark that I still have today that said, "Lord fill my mouth with worthwhile stuff, and nudge me when I've said enough."  That pretty much gets to the point of the matter :o)   I hope you have a wonderful day!

Blessings,

When I have had the occasion to go to Asheville, NC I always loved the drive in from East TN--it's gorgeous anytime of the year.

Your card is gorgeous too and the flower soft is the perfect touch.
