Warm Autumnal Thanks Card

Hi friends! How is everything going with you? Lately I've been finding myself spending an awful lot of time outside since we have been having such a warm and beautiful start to fall here. Grand is an understatement when it comes to describing our autumn. Its the kind of weather just makes me cozy, relaxed and giddy inside all at once.

I love these quotes about fall. I connect with each & wish I could express my feelings about this time of the year so eloquently. I hope you enjoy them.

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” 
― George Eliot

“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.” 
― Nathaniel HawthorneThe American Notebooks

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” 
― Albert Camus

“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.” 
― Henry David Thoreau

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” 
― Lauren DeStefanoWither

Which quote to do like best? Do you have any favorites that you could share?

Since weather is what inspired the card that I created here, I thought I'd share it. I'm never as inspired as I am in the fall to create. How about you? What season inspires you to get crafty?
To create card:
1) Make card base that measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" from white cardstock.
2) Cut woodgrain cardstock (warning: this cardstock is HIGHLY addicting) into a rectangle that is slightly smaller than face of card. Lay stencil on a portion of cardstock and sponge acrylic paint through it. Carefully remove stencil and allow piece to dry. Stamp script.
3) Mat painted and stamped cardstock on black cardstock and adhere to face of card.
4) Cut/emboss label die and stamp sentiment. Add brads. Adhere to card with foam tape.
