Painted Harvest ~ Sunflower and Acorns

Halloween is now behind us and Thanksgiving will be in a few weeks.  I have always loved autumn colors, the gentle mellowness of the lovely golden based tones.

The Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper is filled with Crushed Curry, Early Expresso, Cajun Craze and Tangerine Tango.  Today I have two cards showcasing this paper and the coordinating Painted Harvest Stamp Set. Continue reading

Today is the eve of Thanksgiving here in the USA.  Until I came to the States just over 15 years ago it was not a holiday I was familiar with, but over the years I have learned the meaning of the day and what it represents.

Falling in the autumn also means using the lovely rich tones that I love so much.  Many years ago my mother and I had our colors ‘analysed’ she was deemed to be a ‘Green Autumn’ and I was a ‘Golden Autumn’  ~ so I have used golden autumn colors in my card today. Continue reading
