Feeling Like Fall

Hello friends! Welcome to this week's Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge.  My talented Design Team sister, Janis, selected this week's challenge - Autumn. I love autumn, but I have not experienced it in "many o' year."  South Carolina does not offer an autumn season with the same brisk changes as Michigan or New York.  I miss the cooler temperatures, and chilly rain showers, the amazing colorful leaves, and the fruit trees.  

For my Autumn project I chose to use primarily the new Close To My Heart You Are Here cartridge.  I really am enjoying this cartridge!  The fall fruits group and the feathers were cut from You Are Here.  The green leaves are from CTMH's Flower Market cartridge - a cartridge the I still LOVE very much!  The card shape, mats, and circle are Cricut Basic Shapes.  The word Grateful was stamped onto the "moon" circle using September's Stamp of the Month.  

Have you been by the Bitten By the Bug 2 blog this week?  The Design Team has done a great job of crafting fabulous Autumn themed projects.  I hope you take time to view their work, perhaps leave a comment or two, then join us in this week's challenge!!  Basically it is anything Autumn goes!

This is your last week to be able to obtain the September Stamp of the Month, Feel So Blessed!  This is a super fun and super versatile stamp set, perfect for fall cards, layouts, and projects!


  1. Wow, is what I say! This card is gorgeous. The fall image is so stunning!

  2. Wonderful fall card. Those cuts are so detailed and different than most. Love the feather and pumpkin combo

  3. I can't wait to use this cut! It looks amazing on your card! I'm having a great time playing with You Are Here-I was beside myself with excitement when my birthday package arrived with the cartridge and all my paper! So much paper makes me happy, lol!

  4. Beautiful artwork, Susan! I love that group of fall fruits too and the feathers really add that special something!
