Crushed Suede Thanksgiving

Although it's still over 100 degrees in Arizona, I'm trying to transition to fall colors. Here's my first go at our new In Colors: Soft Suede, Dusty Durango and Crushed Curry. They are just perfect for Fall!

I haven't ordered any new fall themed stamp sets YET, so I had to go into the archives for this one. This is the Season of Friendship Set and it can literally be used for every season: Flowers for Spring, Snowflakes for Winter, Leaves for Fall and a cute little bird to throw in any time ;)

I chose to use the leaves and stamped them in the Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango. The tree is stamped in Soft Suede. I ordered the Soft Suede Ribbon last week, but haven't received it yet, so I had to go a different route for my focal image. I've seen 'banners' popping up all over blogs, so I thought I would give one a try. I just cut a strip of cardstock, measured in about an inch, scored a line, measured in another 1/4 inch and scored again. Then, repeat on the other end. This creates a fold so the banner can pop up. I clipped the ends and added buttons, and Ta-Da, a banner is born!

Hope you like it! TFL.
