Enjoying Autumn with Friday Mashup!

Wow, I cant believe its my turn to host another Friday Mashup challenge. Time flies when you are having fun!

Here in my neck of the woods autumn is in full swing and I am enjoying every minute of it...the kids in school, the crisp air, fresh snow on the mtn peaks, and the leaves changing colors and falling to the ground! I grew up in New England, where some of the prettiest fall colors you'll ever see can be found but here in Alaska we pretty much only see our leaves turn shades of yellow and orange(which is pretty too!), hence the inspiration for this weeks challenge (how awesome is the picture Holly found for the graphic? I love it!).

I've been on a retired set kick, and this week is no different. I love this image from the Sweet Seasons set and made it the focal point of my card, with some bright Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight in the background to set it off.

Make sure you come by The Friday Mashup to play along with us....check out the great cards from the design team, leave them some love and then link up your own card!
