Here's a fun fact; In the United States, actually the entire northern hemisphere (we can't forget our Canadian friends), the first day of autumn is the day of the year in which the sun crosses the celestial equator moving south. This day is called the Autumnal Equinox, and this year it's September 22.
So, with autumn just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to see what you love about this time of year. For me, it’s pumpkins! I love pumpkin pie, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin fudge, and pumpkin bread. Really, all things pumpkin.
I also enjoy the beautiful colors of the changing leaves.
Both cards are 3 inches square. If you've followed my blog for long, you know I love this little size. They're great for gift giving this time of year, but my favorite thing to do is tuck them in the girl's backpacks. It's a fun little "love note" from mom, letting them know how special they are! I like to have an assortment of these little cards on hand. They always come in handy.
1. A ONE-LAYER card is defined as a single
layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers allowed!
2. Make a
card that expresses what you love about autumn/fall.
Post your card somewhere online and link back to A Paperie Journey using the InLinkz button at
the bottom of this post. Please make sure you link to the specific
post on your blog rather than your blog's main page.
4. Have Fun!
Don't forget about the Gratitude Campaign! See Susan's blog for details.
