It is the time of falling leaves

I found this little bag of the neatest fall colored leaves at a craft store and so I pulled them out this week. My card is based on the bonus sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You.
So, what could be better then a fall themed card?
I punched a circle from the dot patterned paper and formed a wreath with those leaves. I just glued them in place.
And, can you guess what my most recent craft purchase is? This amazing border punch by Martha Stewart! WOW. I punched it with some Jenni Bowlin Core'dinations cardstock. You can see the text embossed design in it when I sanded it.
******
And, I want to share a few more photos from our recent trip. These were taken along the Columbia River in Oregon.
We were driving just outside of Hermiston as the sun was getting low. All of a sudden I could see the amazing beauty in the side mirror.
Have you seen wind turbins before? As we drove along the Columbia River, we came to an area where these giants were lining the hills. I loved the late day sun shining on them.
This photo is just off to the side of the car, the sky full of amazing clouds and again, the sun getting low.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
