CR84FN #43 ~ Farewell November!

I must say I'm going to miss November. The smells of autumn in the air as the leaves loft slowly to the ground only to dry and be rustled about by the still warm breezes. I suppose I'll miss it since I know what's ahead in the long cold days of winter...brrr. I think the colors at CR84FN this time are perfect for biding farewell to the blissful days of November ~ brown, tan and green. That's pretty much what we have left here in Ohio; that is if you close one eye to the Christmas decorations that have begun to pop up in the neighborhood!!!



I've used papers from the Cosmo Cricket: Earth Love collection along with a row of Jenni Bowlin tickets. The newsprint flowers are by Graphics 45 and the tattered bloom with the button center is Prima. I die cut the PTI butterflies then gave them a coating of Stampendous Champagne crushed glass glitter! Now this is a glitter I could get used to, big chunks...easy clean up!!! A couple of wee buttons and some pretty tan/kraft lace from Hobby Lobby help me to say goodbye to November. Thanks for popping in today ~ Lisa

You did the Autumn feel complete justice here. ;-) Such a beautiful card! Those tattered flowers are perfect with the tickets and the lace, and I have GOT to get me some of that glitter - oh my! Fabulous stuff. Love those patterned papers. You have the best patterned papers, I've decided. ;-) Beautiful card! Hugs and best wishes for tomorrow. Hope all goes well! ;-)

Fabulous card Lisa, I love your brown fabric flower.

That flower and the glitter butterflies are fantastic, and that brown lace is yummy! I hate saying goodbye to November, too, but only because it means it's getting ready to get really cold. Of course, I live in Georgia, so we only get cold, cold weather about 2 weeks a year, so I guess I shouldn't complain. :) ~Hugs, Cheryl
