Falling Leaves

Autumn in my favourite season, I just love all the mouthwatering colours in the leaves, and the golden glow of the sun when it's lower in the sky.  Yesterday we got plenty of golden glow, with the weirdest weather I've seen in the UK - yellow half-light, almost like an eclipse, and a red sun, thanks to ex-hurricane Ophelia and dust from the wildfires in Spain and Portugal.  Getting other countries' weakened leftover weather is extreme as we get, thankfully.

I've just got my sticky little mitts on my new Layered Leaf stamps, from a new range of layered sets, and I couldn't wait to break them out and play with them.  They'll be debuting in early November, but for now here's a sneaky peek.

I'm playing along at CAS Watercolour Challenge's 1st birthday celebration, Fall Leaves.


and with Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Thinking of You.


  1. Gorgeous card! Love the watercolored leaves! Such a pretty design! Lovely colors too!

    Thank you very much for joining us this week at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!


  2. What fun leaves, Shirley! Can't wait to see the full set! Fall is my favorite season too. The colours are so gorgeous and I love the crisp, cool air! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!

  3. I love the artsy shape of these pretty autumn leaves, Shirley. And so cool that the stamp set will have the different layers. Looking forward to seeing the whole new set next month.

    Isn't the red sun amazing to see. We had that here for about two weeks, along with smoky air from all the fires burning in B.C. and also coming up from the U.S. to the south. Hope you are only seeing the red sun and not having to deal with smoky air!

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful card with us at CAS Watercolour! xx
