All of your creations are very nice but I especially love the last one, rolling hills from the pumpkin die and the Autumn Hills house. So cute and colorful.

Fabulous projects, as always, Melis! I have to say though, my absolute favourite is the last one with all those patterned paper hills--- so creative and adorable!


Beautiful as always. I'm so inspired this month.

I'll just pretend that they made that stamp set just for both of us! I love everything about your post today and can't wait to try out some of the new PTI stuff coming out this month. Oh, and that last card with the rolling hills is super fun and funky. I love seeing different color combos for fall. :)
PS. i totally get the last leg of summer blues. my boys go back to school next week and i'll probably ramp up my blogging then. but for now.... it's been slim pickin's

These are all so wonderful! I love how you focus on just a couple of colors and accent them with your patterned papers and embellishments! The effect is very calming! Thanks so much for sharing!

Gorgeous projects, Melissa. Fall is coming!


You are so right to spend the last days of sunmmer together with Sierra; blogging can wait:)
But it's always good to be here again to see what you have been up to and I think you've outdone yourself. I am not great with the combo of fall colors as in your first card but you did an amazing job. I really love this! Speaking of faborites in this post; I am in love with the way you warpped up the mni loaf( sounds delicious...)

Jill Norwood

Beautiful cards with such pretty details! I too am enjoying these last weeks of summer and swimming and playing with my little one in the is all too fleeting as school will start in September...


Melissa - I could look at your cards all day - they are so fabulous. You have such a great eye for color and design. I just love the way you used the herringbone impression plate on your clouds - so very clever and unexpected.

Patty O'Malley

What a pleasure it is to look at these cards and that banana bread! I am so ready for fall! The colors used here are fabulous. I especially love that pumpkin shaped card. You must share the chocolate banana bread recipe!



Just can't stop coming back to look at your gorgeous cards. Love the shades you used especially on the first card and don't get me started on the pumpkin and the tag on the bread...As always, such a feelgood post.

Thank you
