SHOPPING OUR STASH #318 - Your Favorite Season

Hi there crafty friends!
This week at
we want you to show us what your favorite season is!
You probably thought I'd go with another beach themed card, but
surprise! I'm actually falling in love more and more with Autumn.
The cooler air, the tree leaves bursting in all sorts of color, sleeping with the
windows open instead of the AC running. Ahhhhh!
(Going through menopause and experiencing dozens of hot flashes day 
and night has nothing to do with my choice. *wink*)

Here's my card:

Sometime last year, I was experimenting with the smooshing technique, using a piece 
of acetate to smoosh my inks. I didn't like how the panels came out though.

But instead of filing them under "G" (for garbage), I kept them, thinking I could
cut them up or die cut smaller images from them. And that is where all my
die cut leaves and flowers came from!

So, which season is your favorite? We'd love to see what it is. Simply link
up your project at Shopping Our Stash so we can admire it!

Thanks for visiting. Enjoy your day!
