ColourQing Fall

  
Another wonderful colour combo by Arielle for this week's Colour Q challenge.  I combined it with this week's SCS's sketch challenge - something I have not played along with in a very long time and it felt good to jump in again :)

In keeping with my fall theme, I pulled out this wonderful PTI Falling Leaves set.  Love this little tree - it just makes me smile.

Kept things pretty basic by just using card stock, but like the bold colour blocks.  A few details jazzed it up a bit and I was good to go.

Excited for when the leaves start turning colours around here, but that is a double edged sword as that also means I have a lot of raking to do when they fall down.  Until then, I'll enjoy their Autumn splendor to the fullest :)

I must fess up and apologize about the fact that in my not quite awake state yesterday morning, I accidentally deleted the the first eleven comments on my Christmas card instead of publishing them!!  Hate when I do that!!!  Just wanted to let you know I read every one of them and wish to thank you for taking the time to leave me a  comment.  Unfortunately, the black hole in cyber world is now in possession of them so you won't see your comment on that post....wearing a big "L" on my forehead today LOL!

Have a fabulous day and thanks for popping in today!

Sweet color-blocking, Marisa!! Your autumn tree is as cute as can be :). No need to wear an "L"--I'm pretty sure we can ALL relate!!! ;)

Whew! Thanks for explaining what happened to the comments. I just knew I had commented on that card, but I checked and was not there. I read the post and just knew I had read it before. Glad to know what happened and that I haven't lost my mind..yet. :-)

I LOVE your tree, too. What a great card and I know it is the kind you delight in...with the Fall leaves.
