For my part, I created a fun little folding card using a video tutorial I stumbled on by Kristina Werner . Lots of measuring and matting but with the Stampin Up set called Recess and Lawn Fawn's Harolds ABCs alphas, it was all worth it. Used a Stampin Up Ribbon Originals for my belly band. Hope you like it! (If you'd like to be in a drawing for a little surprise blog candy, just leave me a comment about what the best part of fall is for you and I'll choose a random comment next Thursday... *smile*)

The full effect:

Your next stop on the hop is Lydia at Understandblue, our illustrious hostess with the most-est!

Happy Fall! Have a wonderful day!

This is a great card! I love that it is a folding card. I never dare to try something like it. I think the best part of Fall is the cooler temps. Summer is always blisteringly hot here in Mississippi. So I look forward to cooler temps when Fall comes.

Such a great layered card all wrapped up in a sweet ribbon! I love the leaves of fall, so much colour before the snow comes and all is white.

What an adorable card! So sweet. Love your design and how fun it is. :) So glad that you shared the tutorial, as well. Thanks for that.

The best part of Fall to me is being able to dress a warmer. Put away the shorts & flip-flops and bring out the boots and sweaters. YAY!! :)

Love your sweet little card! The little images are so adorable.
I love the scents that go with autumn, pickles, leaves, new school supplies, warm soups and stews, sooo many great smells.
