Welcome Autumn!

Happy Sunday morning!
It's a really lovely morning.  Last night storms blew past and the humidity finally broke.  The AC is off and the windows are open!

As I said, I'm making some cards to send to Rose, my daughter, who is in her freshman year of college.  She is a big Starbucks girl.  I'll put a gift card inside and she can have a latte on me some chilly fall morning on her way to class. 

The image is from Jane's Doodles, the sentiment from Paper Smooches and to be honest, I don't remember where that leaf is from!  The paper, however, is from Simple Stories.  I did just the tiniest bit of marker coloring to ground the image and create the cup lid.

I'm entering this card in the Virginia's View patterned paper challenge. This is a new challenge for me. Be sure to check it out!


Have a great day!
