Autumn is here...Brrrrrr.


We've had several days of chilly weather here, and it is making me want to create fall-themed cards, wear sweaters, and make soup. So it's perfect for this week's Tuesday Throwdown challenge to celebrate Fall! *grin*

Now I'll let you in on a secret...see that tag?
I made it in 2004 for a tag swap on a message board I used to host called Art Happens. Yep, six years ago! Craziness.

I decided to pull it out and use it on a card for the TT challenge. I think it works, don't you? All I had to do was impress the card base, add some ribbon and buttons with twine and it was done! I think it took me all of 6 minutes to finish!

If you are in a fall card making mood, join us this week for Tuesday Throwdown

Thanks for stopping by friends,

Your card is absolutely gorgeous. I love everything about it.

The weather here in Minnesota has turned cold too and it makes me want to turn on the oven and make comfort food all day.

Stunning Dana! I love the colors and the overlapping leaves on the tag and the acorn, so pretty. I'm off on vacation again for a week, I'll miss visiting you, but I'll "see" you when I get back! :) Hugs

Ah, y'see you've always had that fab stamping style, Dana! Even seven years ago!
I'm feeling autumn come too - even had to wear long sleeves to work today!

Heehee, I love when you can reuse things like that! :) I guess your stamping style hasn't changed too much? Guess you don't have to when you've been awesome all along. Heehee! :)

Most of what I stamped 6 years ago wouldn't be worthy to pull back out again but this is perfect!! I love the tag and how you added it to the card!! Very pretty!
