Falling for Fall

Howdy folks, I hope your day is off to a lovely start. :)

Even though these past few days have been kind of grey and rainy I still love this time of year. The nip in the air, the falling leaves, that golden light as afternoon quickly gives way to evening... it's all magical if you ask me. I think that was the inspiration behind my card for today. I love how that October Afternoon paper looks like Miss Anya is out for an afternoon stroll through the neighborhood.

Because she is a digi I actually printed her out smaller than her usual size to better fit scale wise with the pattern on the narrow card. It also made coloring her up a bit quicker too. All in all a pretty quick and easy card. ;)

So my fellow Gleeks... who's excited for duets night?! Me, me, me! The music has been SO good so far this season and I'm excited to hear the new guy sing again too. Should be a good one and I'm hoping my work day goes by quickly so I can get my Glee on, LOL!

Check ya later!

Love, LOVE this cute scene! The PP is astonishing and Miss Anya fits in perfectly w/ that sentiment. Came back from vacay last night and I watched Glee first off my DVR (of course!). Another wonderful episode -- I just love that song by Jason Mraz and Colbie Calliet!
