Most of the country is feeling the crisp air of Fall, the colors, smells and fruit harvest that make my favorite pies. Not so much here in Arizona. We are still experiencing temps well over 100 degrees on this first day of October.
Growing up and living my early adult years in the northeast I had a love/hate relationship with Fall. I loved the vivid colors and jumping in the leaves, pumpkin and apple pies. I hated that the falling leaves signaled the coming of winter and months of cold, snowy weather. I was not fond of snow and cold even as a kid. I was happier staying inside reading or crafting up a mess.
I am still inspired by those vivid Fall colors though. Here are a couple of cards I made this week using Color Burst that nod to the season.
