Autumn is creeping!

First off thank you to Stamping 411!  I made the showcase this past week!  So honored!

Although we are in the midst of summer last night my creations took a turn towards fall.  Warm colors, back to school and brown brown brown.  My first card using K&Company patterned paper complimented by Stampin Up's Rich Razzelberry, Very Vanilla & Soft Suede.  I adore the sentiment and Papaya Collage stamp set for the elements.

While creating this next card I kept thinking how strange it will be when my kids are off to school.  We also received a Land's End catalog just full of school backpacks, lunch bags and other school essentials.  My son is already picking out his backpack for kindergarten (he's 4 and won't be going until fall 2013). 

For the card I used the new InColors and Riding Hood Red.  Then I pulled out some measuring tape from my collection and snipped a bit to add to the card.  I'm not a big fan of coloring but I like how my Greeting Card kids turned out.  They remind me of some retro wrapping paper or story book from the 1950's. 
love em!
