Hello friends, I have a sweet little Autumn card for you today.   I just love this season and we just don't get much change here in the desert! I so miss the smell of Autumn, the crunch of the leaves as you walk and most of all apple picking!  I can't wait to move back east so we have the seasons again.  I am using 2 awesome sets from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, Autumn Leaves and Grateful Greetings both of which are 20% off right now.  I stamped with distress inks onto watercolor paper, added the sentiments with memento ink and heat embossed to make them stand out  and just layered away.
