My Favorite

This it my favorite time of year!  I love that the heat is leaving and the days are still nice and the nights are clear and all in all, it is good sleeping weather.  I am not sure that I could live without the changing of the seasons.

There are so many digis out that depicting autumn and the changing of the seasons.  This one from Deedee's Digis is no exception.  I love this image and had to color it right up!


I live in the Finger Lakes Region of New York and we are wine country.  There are many local vineyards and they provided great inspiration for this!

I paired up the digi with one of the included sentiments - you can see them all here.
I also followed the challenge over at Stamp N Doodle of purple and brown.  I won't submit it for their challenge, but had to give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by!
Huggz,
April

Look at those fabulous grapes! You gave them such depth with your coloring, and I love the fun inking on the image frame. GORGEOUS card! We are in wine country, too, though on the opposite side of the country. We get to watch the grape leaves change while others watch the tree leaves change -- how fun is that? :-) Hugs, Deedee
