The Leaves are Falling!

Well, the snow is all gone (hurray!), but there are leaves everywhere after the 50 mph wind we had all day! I even have a few on my card! :)

Today's SCS Limited Supplies Challenge, hosted by my friend, Wendy, was to use leaves as a focal point and some pink on your card. It's Pink Week at SCS and each challenge has incorporated some kind of pink. My pink is in the background of the leaves; specifically at the top of the top leaf!

Tomorrow is the last Marching Band Competition of the season - the BIG state one - where all the bands from around the state come and compete. I am so thankful that it's not raining, snowing, or blowing and that the temperature tomorrow is going to be in the high 60's!
Have a great weekend!

Gosh, I love those squares down the left with the piercing and twine and darling little beads. Such rich warm colours. Plenty of leaves around here too - had a lovely time scrunching through them walking home across the park yesterday.
