autumn is in the air

i've already had the first sinus infection/cold of the season and the leaves are already falling.  it is my favourite time of the year with the colour of the leaves and vines changing, the sound of the leaves rustling under your feet, the smell of the crisp air, the taste of a crunchy apple and memories of school starting and seeing friends again. while this still happens as i am a part of a teaching team at a school for students with developemental disabilities, i don't get the new backpack or runners to start the school year anymore!  lol!!!  so many things flood my senses at this time of year!  i love it! so while the trees and plants slow down, i get energized with the cooler air and more time indoors seeing the things i neglected all summer!

oh! and the card is my avatar on the new cricut message board...

flowers and bugs

button flowers and cuttle bug embossing...  when i saw the button embossing border i was excited to incorporate it into many creations.   i started with a copper tag but gave that away before photographing, perhaps i will make another.  however, getting back to this card, i used the button folder for the edge and cut stems from the walk in my garden cart and added layers of buttons for the heads of the flowers.

i am finally posting again as i have new batteries and can download the photos of previous creations, i have time as i have  a severe sinus infestion that had me in bed yesterday and looks like today as well,  so just using the laptop to get up to date.
