The Year's Last, Loveliest Smile

As I excitedly grabbed the last bag of pumpkin spice bagels off the shelf at the grocery store yesterday, it hit me. Fall is truly here! Of course, the cool crisp New England mornings and the fact that I have a light weight sweater on today were also a pretty strong tip off. Just sayin'. Alas, with that we say goodbye to summer and welcome in the beauty of this season of change! For today's card I decided to celebrate that transition using the beautiful Autumn Leaves Clear Stamp Set from Sweet n' Sassy Stamps as I am guest designing for them this month!

The Year's Last Smile

I stamped the leaves on the background and embossed them with gold enamel from Stampendous!. I stamped the sentiment on a simple banner and added just a touch of coordinating washi tape and some gorgeous burlap string from May Arts - a fall crafting essential!

Have you begun your fall crafting? If not, pull on some comfy crafting clothes, pour yourself a hot cup of spice tea or yummy cider or pumpkin spice coffee and grab a handful of candy corn because it's time to stamp some leaves and stuff! Just sayin'!

Happy Fall, friends!
