Indian Summer to Wonder{Fall}

Pumpkin Spice lattes, crisp cool mornings...warm, sunny, flip flop wearing afternoons...Indian Summer is officially here!  This is my favorite time of year!
It's been a busy few weeks for me and I haven't had a lot of time for stamping for fun :(  Between getting everything ready for my Stamp for a Cause class (which was a great success!) and finishing up my swaps for Tacoma Regional this coming weekend, I've been a busy momma!
As I sat and enjoyed a cup of coffee this morning and cruised through some of my favorite blogs and challenge sites, I came across the Friday Mashup Challenge for this week...Indian Summer.  It just so happens that one of my swap cards fits into this category perfectly :) 

My inspiration from this card came from the MANY acorns my twins collect each day when we take our walk :)  They love to collect them and leave them under random trees along our walk for the squirrels.  And every so often, I find a few of them in my washing machine...the joys of boys!

Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Orchard Harvest DSP
Ink ~ Raspberry Ripple, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade
Stamp Sets ~ Wonderfall, Mixed Medley (Hostess Set)
Other Supplies ~ 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Square Punch, Autumn Accents Bigz Die, Naturals Buttons, Linen Thread

I love all of the warm fall colors in the Orchard Harvest DSP...I see myself using this paper a lot over the next few weeks.

Hope you are all enjoying the last little bit of summer and embrace the fall!
Happy Stamping!
