Not ready for Fall

Yes, today is the first day of fall but I am holding onto Summer, screaming, throwing a little tantrum!!!
 Now, I really do love the colors of fall and with that I always find it fun to create fall projects but I love the longer hours of sunlight that summer brings so I don't let hold of that easily but no one ask me and fall is marching on. I did want to create a card to celebrate fall arriving today. I used the new retro sketch and some Paper Smooches stamps. The black striped piece is a piece of Paper Tape. I love Paper Tape so I wanted to create another project using that.
 The patterned paper is from a mini pad from Echo Park.  This was so easy with these really cute, fall themed stamps.
 Here is the retro sketch.
 Another card I wanted to share is one that I created to go with the 10 minute craft dash.  This super adorable set of stamps from Paper Smooches and a variety of Clearsnap stamp pads made this really fast and easy.
 The little cups actually stamp solid and I added the leaves and the smoke with stamps.

Here is the 10 minute craft dash.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
