Thankful for FALL

Today I have some pictures to share and two fall cards for two different challenges, the first one is a SUO {Stampin' Up Only} card for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge using the stamp sets French Foliage and Grateful Greetings.  The base of the card is Early Espresso with an Square Lattice embossed panel of Cajun Craze.  Then I added a panel of Really Rust along with a strip of More Mustard.  The leaves from the French Foliage set seem to stand out better when I stamped them individually and then filled in with other stamped leaves and images from the set.  I then sponged with Early Espresso ink around the outer edges of my main image and sentiment and added the three brads.
This second card is for the Papertrey Peeps Challenge which was to create a card using a tag with a focus on sentiments.  I'm not sure my tag actually looks like a tag but I guess tags come in all shapes and sizes.  I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Falling Leaves and Friendship Jar Fall Fillers for the Autumn Wishes.
This is the farm down the street from our house that I some times visit to purchase fresh sweet corn and vegetables and I couldn't resist snapping a few shots yesterday while I was there.
Mary {the owner} always has the best produce and has such a pretty display of vegetables.
Check out this antique wheelbarrow filled with fall goodness.

I hope this puts you in the mood for fall!

Wow, those are really beautiful fall cards! Love them both! If I forget to ask, would you mind bringing Fall Foliage with you when you come to stamp? I am seeing gorgeous cards with that set. Love seeing all the fall veges and displays, too. Definitely putting me in the fall mood : )
