Four Seasons Challenge - FALL

Hello Dear Friends ...

A new month means a new challenge over on the Four Seasons Challenge Blog.  Our theme this month once again is FALL (the last Fall for this year) and we have a fun mood board to share for your inspiration.  Keep in mind you do NOT have to use the board ... it's there for your inspiration only.


 I was inspired by all the fall leaves for today's card and the opening in the wreath made me think I might like to make an 'opening' on my card ... hence my design.

  How cute is this little guy!!

This cute image is from one of the Very Vintage! packets I purchased this past spring at the local Adventures in Stamping convention.  You can find these images at the Too Much Fun Rubberstamps store and they have these for a variety of occasions.  When I wrote up this post their site was under construction but I'll try to remember to come back and link you directly to these sheets of images.

In the meantime, here's a quick photo I took to show you what to look for!
There are TWO sheet with FOUR images on both sheets.

I used Tutti Designs layering dies to create the aperture on my card front and the little leaves are from the Impression Obsession - Leaves die set (DIE-095).  The Happy Birthday sentiment dies are also Tutti Designs.

Whoop!  Thanks so much for your generosity Karen.  Be sure to pop by her blog ... there even more goodies being offered ... she'll share the details on her post.

As always,



  1. What a beautiful card! I love the colors you chose to work with; so bright and cheerful! I also had to smile when I saw the little squirrel in the corner.

  2. Pretty Fall card, love the opening into the inside and the pretty leaves framing it on the outside!

  3. I love your card with the squirrel in the scene! He looks like one of our small Douglas squirrels which are fun to watch and not annoying at all when it comes to the bird feeders. I know a lot of people say they don't like squirrels, but I imagine those are mostly the large gray ones. Deer and raccoons were always our biggest problem, sheesh! It's cute that you made a window. Seems that's how I'm usually viewing the wildlife in my garden.

  4. Lovely autumn colours on your birthday card .. thanks for sharing with us at Allsorts challenge this week

  5. This is a beautiful Autumnal image and card. Thank you for joining us at Allsorts this week.

  6. Such a cute Autumn image, and such a wonderful idea to make an opening to see it through and how you carried the leaves onto the inside of the card!

  7. What a great idea to make a window card, Darlene. Thanks for sharing it with us at Just Us Girls.

  8. The squirrel really is a cute image and I love that you placed him into that window opening! This is such a beautiful nod to fall with those warm colors and leaves too!

  9. Oh my goodness that little squirrel image is so adorable. I love how you paired it with the pretty die cut leaves.

  10. Fabulous card
    Thank you for entering our Anything Goes Challenge atThrough The Craft Room Door this week. Looking forward to see you again next challenge. Good luck Ginny
