Happy Fall Y'all

Woo-hoo, it's here! It's fall now.  OK, so the weather today wasn't exactly what I would call a good ole autumn day but it seems to be ending that way.  We had a storm and the temps dropped.  It's funny, I use to live for the summer, I mean the hotter the better but it appears the older I get the more I look forward to Fall and Winter...what's up with that?  I hate being cold so why am I looking forward to colder weather?  I am definitely a strange individual at times, lol.  Anyhoo, to mark the first day of Fall, I thought I would post a Fall card I recently did.  On one of my Yahoo groups, the challenge 2 weeks ago was to make a card using "fall colors" (orange, red, browns, etc) but not necessarily a fall card.  Since I had this adorable Sassy Cheryl digi, I just had to go all out Fall!!
I just love Sassy Cheryl images!! They are just too adorable.  Even more horrible coloring can't make this girlie look bad.
The sentiment is from Tracey at BrossArt.  You want to see creative genius, go look at her blog.  Oh my, I just adore her! Papers are all digis and the flowers....of course, Wild Orchid.
Well, it's about bedtime for me, better get off this computer and get ready for tomorrow.  See y'all back here soon (I hope).

Paula your coloring is beautiful and that little girl is delightful. You always seem to have the best papers to use when putting your cards together.
I feel the same way you do about the seasons - summer is my least favorite. I guess where you live it is not as humid in the winter and there should not be as many people swarming around!
I always love seeing your creations!!!

When I saw this 1st thing this morning I said YES, there's our girl. I LOVE it when you post your oh so cute cards.
I too love these images & have a couple that haven't even seen ink . Guess I should fix that so I can give some life to mine. They are tired of living in a box ... Haha
Seriously Paula, your little card is adorable & colored beautifully. I'm so glad you are in a group that inspires you in a challenge each week ... I need that inspiration myself Got too many supplies here calling my name & my mojo just needs to kick me a little harder. I MISS THIS SO MUCH !!! I will get busy & get back to work.
Hugs, Janie

Hi Paula, long time no visit - I realise I've been very slack recently about visiting the blogs I follow so I'm trying to put that right!

I love your autumn colours in this design, and all the beautiful flowers surrounding it. Like you, I welcome the arrival of autumn, but it's because I hate hot weather! Summer is my least favourite season. I love the autumn colours and the smell of woodsmoke in the air, but not the bugs lol!!
