Happy Fall Ya'll!

I know its felt like fall in the north for a while now, but it has hit us here in N. Texas last night! I'm already freezing and its only 50! Hope ya'll had a great Thanksgiving and ready to get down to business! time to get ready for the Holidays! I need to start thinking about making my Christmas cards and I just can't think of what I want to do this year. I think I'm overwhelmed. I have so many great ideas and can't use them all on 1 card! And a very good friend of mine found out the day before Thanksgiving that she has Lymphoma and has to see her oncologist and start chemo ASAP! So I've been a little down thinking about what she's going to have to go through and couldn't be a worse time! Not that there's ever a good time, but you know what I mean....
Anyhoo! this is my submission for the Cricut Circle monthly challenge for November. The Challenge this month  was to create a project of any kind using "signs/symbol" of fall. It can be any item that brings the fall feeling to you! Must inclue some way of adding texture to your project, whether its using a cuttlebug, distress the edges, ink, stickles, etc and use at least 2 different Cricut cuts.
The prize is $150.00 on cricut,com!

My recipe:
Cricut Craftroom
Cricut Imagine
Colorbok paper from Walmart
Martha Stewart corner punch
Enjoy the Seasons for the image and the background brown paper and the acorn corner banner
Orange ribbon from Walmart
Martha Stewart stamp kit for the Happy Fall ya'll stamped on flags
Gold glitter pen
Orange inkpad (around the orange mat)
Martha Stewart scoring board for the scoring of the brown mat (what was I thinking!!  As soon as I got a few of those lines done I was sorry I started that! )

Thanks for stopping by! And I hope you have a great week! I'm so glad I don't have to go back to work tomorrow! I feel for ya! I wish everyone could stay home and play with me!
