Very few leaves are actually falling so far in our yard, but the little scene on this card will be reality before too long! We brought our chipper/shredder from the old house because the shredded leaves are so good for the compost. The quantity of leaves to vac and shred here will be probably only 20% of what had last year!
The stamp on this card is from September’s 25th anniversary set, Best of Autumn. You may remember the set that had this image — four seasons of the same tree. This card, based on a Create with Connie and Mary sketch from a few months ago, is simple and quick (and appropriate for a guy, I think). We needed a quick card in camp because there were others that were a little more time consuming, but the extra on this one was a matching envelope from the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper. Mastering the Envelope Punch Board is a snap!
