Kind Words

Hi there! Happy Thursday! Ok, is it 100 billion degrees where you are? It is SO very hot here..ugh. I am NOT one for heat and humidity and this summer has been off the charts hot.


Today, I have my card for this week's FYI Challenge. It really reminds me of Fall, so it's one of my favorite inspiration pictures. Just thinking about Fall makes me cooler....college football, chili, cool crisp saturday mornings...I love it all! Here is this week's photo:



And here is my card:


Is that scene not so beautiful? I pulled the grey from the stairs and, of course, the red and tree from the surrounding scenery. The faux texture on the patterned paper also reminded me of the real texture on the stairs...kinda like a concrete type thing, ya know? 


Anyway, please stop in and play along with us. We've got a fabulous photo and would love to see what you do with it. Laters!!

What a beautiful inspiration card to go with a beautiful inspiration photo. Love your colors and pick of PP. I agree that it does look a bit like the texture of cement. BTW......I can't wait until fall and football! ;-)

Love your take on this vibrant photo! You captured the essence so well using this lovely tree image! I'm really hating this hot, humid weather, too...fall sounds like a welcome relief!

Keva this is SO pretty! I love your take on this picture! That thin red mat is perfect for pulling the red in the leaves! Just gorgeous!

Amy said...

Speaking of HOT!!! This card is!! I really love that tree done in those colors and it matches the inspiration perfect! When will we ever get any relief from this heat? My grass is gone....flowers are going soon too. :(
