hello birdies fall edition and a winner!

Hello!  Happy Thursday!  I hope that all is well with you!  We are having beautiful but a bit windy weather!  Such a nice way for September to end!  Today I am home with Carter as Ariel is in school!  She is loving school and is doing so well!  Every month at her school students are to memorize bible verses this month she had to memorize " I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;  your works are wonderful,  I know that full well. Psalm 139:14"  Not a small easy one at all!  She wanted to learn it and did it quickly!  And she learned it and recited it before the last day!  I am so proud of her!

Do you remember this card I made in the summer?  A little while ago I had an idea for a fall version! 




I also have a winter version in my head too but will not allow myself to make it until we have snow.  But friends that really could be any day where I live!  :>  I stamped the tree limbs and birds from Kiss from the Sun set by HA, love that set! To make the falling leaves I cut a leaf out of another HA clear stamp, and than stamped it all over.  The birds may not be actual colors but well I thought it was cute!  This card makes me happy!  

I am entering this card into the current Hero Arts challenge which is anything fall!  And also into the current Caardvarks challenge which is CAS!

So while I was gone at Scrapfest I had a few posts up and was planning on drawing a prize!  So here it is!  The winner is:

Wow wonderful card, Anita! I love the way you stamped the embossed bg and the butterflies are absolutely gorgeous! Can't wait to hear about your adventures at ScrapFest!
Yay Heather!  Please email me your addresses!  As for your prize I have decided to leave it as a surprise!  I think it will be more fun to have to wait to see what comes in your mailbox!  :>
I love giving things away!  :>

Hope your week is wonderful I am excited about Saturday and World Card Making Day!
