FALL *Thank You* cards

Its a gorgeous, crisp Autumn morning here in New York where there are many Fall festivals happening this weekend.....The beautiful changing colors of the leaves almost parallels the many new changes in my life. Cant wait to get out there with my kids to enjoy the beautiful scenery. 

Ive been playing around with new tools and checking out techniques. I wanted to try my hand at some so here are 2 FALL-ish *Thank You* cards...

First up is one inspired by SCS Inspirational Challenge #IC254 ~ Better Bit of Butter Cookies, found HERE. I took my inspiration from this fun 2 inch square Mini B Cookie #24.

Both cards are wonderful! Good to see you creating again. We are also enjoying the leaves changing colors, at the other end of our state, its always such a spectacular sight and I have lived here my whole life except for a year in California. Love the layers and colors you chose for both beauties.
