CCC meets SS and JFF...

There must be a touch of Autumn somewhere...........but certainly not in SW Florida, still in the mid 90's, and it's the dog days of Summer!  We don't get Fall here, but the colors of Autumn are some of my favorites.

This week it just so happens I have a bunch of challenges that really go together.  Linda's challenge this week at the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge is Batik; at Just For Fun, the color challenge is Olive, Orange & Rust; and at Simon Says Stamp and Show, it's my Stamp Guru, Tim....so I combined the challenges for this beautiful omen to Autumn with Tim's new Falling Leaves stamps.  I've done this tech before, but never have been as pleased as I am using these stamps for it, they worked out really great. 

Trying out a new photo program today, and I don't know what I'm doing yet, so instead of the bg being black, we have blue...I tried to fix it but ?

Thank ya'll for stoppin' by today, smilez & hugz.....

Oh Gerrie! I love your Fall take on the CCC, SS and JFF challenges! Your colors are gorgeous and I love, love those leaves! We hit 108 yesterday and even though it is a dryer climate, it is still breathtaking hot! Stay cool and have a great day!

This is a beauty, Gerrie! (I didn't know you were in S Florida.... we're still having 90-degree days, but we have very low humidity.) I've learned to love these fall colors...and the purple addition is perfect!

the blue background looks great with your tag. Love the embossing on the background and the crumpled ribbon really adds a lot to the tag!

Another awesome piece. The leaves against your color are so beautiful. I love that ribbon. Here in Chicago I love the fall colors; I just don't look forward to what comes next.
