Celebrate Fall

I was walking fluffy dog (my name for him) this morning and it was so amazing to see the tips of leaves starting to change colors.  A few have fallen and the gentle rustling is so sweet to my ears.  Although, it frightens the fluffy dog sometimes.  After said walks, this is where he goes. 
It's a mute point to get him off the furniture.  He's allowed to at his home so it's useless trying here.  He looks up at you with these huge puppy eyes and it makes me want to squeeze him next to me.  I don't know if he will ever give up that stare if it gets him so much attention.  Previous pets I have owned have never been allowed on the furniture.  This dog is lucky but also a great companion.  Plus he's super soft with that angel like hair. 
My fall card today was completely inspired with the weather and a little Patty Griffin.  I am revisiting her Downtown Church album with much happiness.  A little dancing in my chair while sewing, cutting, and coloring.  Pure joy to me!  Fluffy dog sitting across from me looks up every now and again to see my movements and then closes his eyes again.  :-)
This card uses Elizabeth Mae's "Candy" image.  I added a Webster's Pages pattern paper that I stitched to the yellow cardbase and then layered a leaf doily.  The image is popped up on a Creative Imaginations ledger paper that's been wrapped with a polka dot orange ribbon tied with a yellow button in white floss.  I cut a SRM sticker to make the sentiment.  I sometimes get crazy like that.  I wanted it be a little different than the usual.
