Let Us Begin

The deadline is almost here for the current ODBD challenge: Anything Goes with ODBD stamps.  I used the "Let Us Begin" stamp set & one of the Beautiful Borders dies. I added Stickles, pearls & satin ribbon to embellish my card.  Brown, cream & aqua is a combination that works anytime of year, I think. 
I don't usually participate in Our Beautiful World, as photography is not one of my strengths. However, I couldn't resist showing what Autumn is like in my part of the world--Western Oregon.
Here's the neighbor's tree I've been showing every few weeks & now you can see the one next to it also has color.
Here's a shot from our last camping trip with temps still warm, but you know it's actually Fall when you see the leaves changing color.
And here's puppy Fritz on Critter Watch! I admit he looks like this no matter what season we're camping, but the leaves on the ground show it's Fall. 
Thanks for sticking with me for this long post & I hope you enjoy the weekend.

  10. What a lovely post. Your card is beautiful and the photos are lovely.
    We were in New England two weeks ago and the colours were amazing, though still alot of green. I liked them still having green trees as it showed the contrast with the maples.
    Love your dog.
    Lovely

  17. I love that quote. What a terrific layout too!
    Fall seems to be very slow here - we've kept temps in the 60s and 70s, and many of the trees in my yard are still green. We've had snow flurries by this time in the past, so I know winter's coming but it's going to be a rude awakening when it does!
