Week of Unity Day 3

Welcome back! Remember to leave a comment on today's post to be entered in my comment candy for a Unity single of your choice!

Fall is always so short here in interior Alaska. The weather cools starting mid-August, then by the end of September we've already had our first snow. The trees are completely bare now, we're getting frost every morning, and we've had at least 3 snows. I miss fall!

So this card is in honor of the very short fall we have. I stamped the images on some DCWV paper, then cut out the trees before matting them. The pumpkin image has stitch lines drawn on it, so I thought it would add a fun touch to do REAL stitching. I colored in the buttons and the stem with a colored pencil. I used the Mojo Monday sketch for this week, too.
