Leaves Everywhere!

Guys, I think I need an intervention.  I can't stop making fall leaf cards.

On second thought, let's skip the intervention.  I'm having too much fun.  : )  And fall leaf cards never hurt anyone...except I guess if you got a papercut.  That might hurt.  I might be addicted to the Candy Dots too, I love having those in so many colors.

So, I sat down last night to make one card but for some reason I stamped out two leaves and I figured that I had enough patterned paper scraps on my table to make a second card so why not?  I used the latest challenge at As You See It, I think I'm gonna have fun with their challenges.

Just realized that I forgot to do a scalloped edge on that one bit...okay so it's a bit of a liberal interpretation of the sketch, but I was in the Zone last night.  Once I got started making the cards I didn't even look at the sketch again I think.

The colors are from Dynamic Duos, with the addition of Chocolate Chip:

And just for funsies I'm also going to enter this one at the new Around the World challenge site to make a fall card (or two, if you're me).

I also really like their inspiration pic there.  The one for spring is really cute too (hit the link above to visit their site), that dog is totes adorbs.

When did I start saying "totes adorbs"?

Anyway, I'm off to drink enough caffeine to take over the world, starting with taking my "totes adorbs" doglets for a walk.  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Gently Falling, Four You
Ink:  So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Chocolate Chip
Paper:  Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, retired Calypso Coral DSP & Parisian Summer DSP (I think that's what the Saffron plaid is from, I found it in my scrap pile and I love plaid)
Accessories:  corner rounder punch, Subtles Candy Dots, Dimensionals

Sooo love that chocolate chip. It's just the best brown ever! And I don't think I could EVER be tired of fall colors and leaves! Starts my morning!

WOW! Love your cards! Beautiful stamping and the patterns really go well together.
I have a very good friend who would also definitely say "tots adorbs" :) Thanks for playing at AYSI this week.

That has to be one of my favorite fall stamp sets too! I had better haul that one out before it's too late this year. Very nice, simple, and clean cards. Thanks for playing along with the AYSI!
