Autumn Leaves are Falling on Little Bear

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Nut

Here in northeast Ohio it is truly beginning to feel like Fall! Temps have dropped into the 60's & 70's, and the leaves are starting to change color. A few are falling from the trees. Hubby was none to happy when I reminded him that for Halloween Trick-or-Treaters, just a mere 6 weeks from now, we have been known to have snow! grins!

Autumn is without a doubt one of my most fave seasons. So today's card is all about those beautiful falling leaves!


I have used this cutey 'Autumn Bear' image by Rick St. Dennis. there is an entire season of these fun bears! They remind me of the 'Little Bear' stories I used to read when I was a young girl.

Papers are from my beloved Basic Grey Indian Summer collection, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, leaves are by Petaloo, burlap ribbon is May Arts, banner punch & linen thread are SU!, and buttons are from my vintage stash. the gorgeous golden yellow satin ribbon is also from my stash, so I apologize that I don't know the mfg.  a bit of faux stitching was added along with my usual distressing.

btw - as I've been going around leaving blog comments, I've noticed that some of the blogs I used to follow aren't showing up in my feed. not sure what happened while I was on hiatus. if you happen to notice that I'm not stopping by, please pop me a note in the 'email me' section over on my sidebar. it's not a personal slight, I promise. just a weird something going on with my blog feed. I've had to re-join several blogs. yours might be one I need to add again to my 'friends connect'. thanks!

Have a happy weekend! :)
