Here I am enjoying simply gorgeous and unseasonably warm Fall days. I just love being in my craft room filled with natural sunlight. It makes creating cards a bit easier as I feel so happy. This card is for my brother-in-law's birthday

I stamped the leaves and fussy cut them, adding a bit of color randomly with colored pencils. I think the card has a nice masculine look.

I am loving the unseasonably warm days too Sheila, wish it would stay this way for the whole winter! lol But I know it will get colder and the snow will fly, but for now I'm enjoying these beautiful days! Love the bright sunshine as well, my craft room has a lot of sun that comes through the windows and it makes me feel happy too. Love your beautiful birthday card. Your leaves are so pretty, love the way you did them. I'm sure your BIL will love it too! Hugs, Brenda
