Thankful for You

 I'm definitely thankful for fall...and coffee!  Today, although rainy, was definitely cooler and it's starting to really feel like fall.  Can't wait to break out some sweaters!


I did break out my Color Burst powders to create these rich, fall-looking leaves!  It's so fun using those powders because you never quite know what you'll end up with.  Before cutting out the leaves, I spritzed over the watercolored paper with gold and splattered some clorox.  I added some branch die cuts and then this cute little coffee cup die from Lil Inker Designs.  The pretty plaid paper is new from Lawn Fawn.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration!
