DD #23 ~ Take Time!

Hi there! And a happy world card making day to my fellow card makers! It's Saturday once again and that means another Dynamic Duos color challenge! This week we give you the bold and sassy colors of Tangerine Tango and Old Olive.We also welcome three new guest designers for the month of October ~ Aimee, Alison and Paula!


This sentiment by Hero Arts is probably the first sentiment stamp I bought...years ago! And I encourage you to do just as it says. I love the simple act of taking my little Max on a long walk during the Autumn months. We rustle through the fallen leaves that smell so good and watch the squirrels as they scamper about preparing for the winter months ahead. The simple joy of seeing a chipmunk cross our path with his little tail sticking straight up and his cheeks bulging with nuts to store! It's a quiet and peaceful time that I truly enjoy. Something else I enjoy is this leaf stamp from 'A La Art given to me by my son when he was in college! 
 
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a splendid weekend ~Lisa

So true! Your card is such a pretty autumn card. I wish we were rustling thru fallen leaves! It is still hovering in the 80's and the leaves are still green! Much warmer than usual! So I love hearing you describe your glorious fall days!
