Hello Autumn

I was so disappointed when it ended up raining most of the day on my day off! When it gets near peak foliage time in VA,  I love to drive to the mountains and stop at overlooks. wasn't meant to be today.  So, I brought some fall foliage to my card creation for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge instead! These are not traditional fall colors, but I'm a papercrafter and I figure I can tweak the routine a bit. :-)  Guess I'm feeling rebellious today!  I used a couple of the new in colors from SU and paired them up with Sahara Sand - the colors in this fun Moonlight designer series pad.  The leaves and coordinating dies are by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I die cut the sentiment twice and layered it to give a bit more dimension.  

STAMPS: Season of Change (Sweet 'n Sassy).
INK: Hello Honey, Blackberry Bliss, Sahara Sand.
DIES: Small Hello by Simon Says Stamp; Season of Change (Sweet 'n Sassy).

It's that time of year again, so I'm putting a plug in for you to get your flu shot!  I checked that off my to do list today.  I've been a believer in this vaccine for many years.  No, it doesn't cover all strains, but a former doctor in our clinic used to say you will not get as bad of a version of the different strains if you do get sick.  Remember, it takes up to 2 weeks for your antibodies to build up so you have to allow for that build up time before you're "covered".  Have I convinced you yet? :-)   For more information, here is a link to the CDC information sheet.
