What Are the Signs of Fall?


As August rolls to a close and September appears on the horizon, fall is approaching. So my question for you “what are the signs of Fall?”  Is it leaves changing color?  Pumpkins ready for the carving.  Apples ready for apple pie?  Squirrels are busy scurrying.  Men preparing for hunting season. Okay, you get the idea and the last thought ties into today’s card.  The new Holiday Catalog which I am in love with has pheasants as a stamp set.  It is called Pleasant Pheasants.  It is simply beautiful and you color them with your Blends. When I saw it I knew it would be a great masculine card.  I think it would be a great sympathy card to give to a man that has lost his wife. I made mine a birthday card.

When I choose the colors for the pheasants, I wanted the female a lighter color. So I still used the Soft Suede for the body and feathers, but I used the Color Lifter to lighten her body. The head was colored with Crumb Cake. The initial stamping was done in Early Espresso. The greeting came from Southern Serenade.
