Welcoming Autumn

I am so anxious to welcome autumn to Texas. I love the cool crisp days and the colorful fall leaves! With today's 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More designs, I am hoping to hurry it along a little! Both of this week's Kitchen Sink Stamps cards were created using 3 Step Autumn Squirrel. Not only does this set have this delightful squirrel, but there are also acorns in two sizes, two types of leaves, and several fun sentiments!

  1. Fabulous cards Lynn! The squirrel looks like he trying to decide if he should bury the acorn or eat it!

  2. Love the way you did the background on both cards! Cute little squirrel and Rambo would have so much fun chasing it! Fantastic cards!
    Not sure when we'll see any fall type weather around here - maybe December?!!

  3. OMG, your 10 minute more card is spectacular! Love the addition of the cluster of leaves, acorns and ribbon as well as your colored embossing. Your CAS design is a knockout too, allowing the sweet squirrel to take center stage and show off your wonderful 3-step stamping.
