It's Fall! {Close To My Heart}

It felt like fall around here for two days last week. It was fabulous!
But now . . . . not so much.

During Florida's autumn months, we spend the time tricking ourselves - trying desperately to FEEL autumn, because we want to fully enjoy our pumpkin spice lattes, and decorate our front porches with pumpkins and hay bales.
But in reality, it's a bit difficult to get into the autumn spirit when it's 85 degrees outside. We leave the pumpkin patch a sweaty mess, and we don't carve our pumpkin until a few days before Halloween, otherwise it will be a moldy, buggy mess.
Autumn in Florida. . . not my fave.
But autumn in general?
TOTALLY my fave.

This card features the Poster Tidings stamp set from Close To My Heart. It was the September Stamp of the Month, but if you're desperate for it, I can probably help you find one! ;)
I hope your weekend is feeling MUCH more autumn-like than mine. Enjoy it, and throw some leaves in the air for me! Our leaves will start turning brown and a few will fall off the trees. . .sometime around January! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Yes Laura I completely understand about trying to get into the autumn spirit and pumpkins rotting if carved too early. Your card though with its fall colors is a good start! Mahalo for the sweet package as about goodies to play with for months to come!

Autumn. She is a fickle tease, isn't she?! Love your card. It at least helps me "think" about cooler weather!
