Autumn in a Country Lane

As summer winds down, and we look towards the Labour Day weekend coming up, it's with more than a twinge of regret and a heap of relief for myself and many British Columbians, as we anticipate cooler weather, more rain and hopefully, the end of the forest fires and smoke-choked skies. The regret is for the summer that we had to spend half of indoors because of the poor air quality, which at times, was the worst in the world. But we had some rain which washed away the smoke temporarily and gave us a glimpse of clear skies and a bit of hope. And honestly, it was easy for us. We weren't among those who had to battle the flames, or be evacuated or who lost everything in the fires, so we count our blessings and pray for those who had it much worse.

These photos show a little of what it was like. The map shows the number of forest fires burning in the province a week or so ago. It looks like someone with a bad case of the measles!

So, yes, we're ready to write off summer and look forward to autumn, which brings me around to the card I want to share with you today. It uses a new suite from the up-coming Holiday Catalogue, Country Lane!

  • There are so many elements of this Country Lane Suite that I adore, I almost don't know where to start, but the Country Home stamp set* is as good a place as any! I love the two containers: the rustic jug and the milk can and then there are two bouquets of fall designs that you can stamp on top of either container. (The Stamparatus comes in handy here.) There are 8 sentiments, a tin tile design and a little plaque that fits the smaller sentiments.
  • If you look behind the stamped panel you see a portion of an embossed Tin Tile layer. To make this I used the new Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder* and the Galvanized Metallic Paper*! It's so effective. Some of the other elements of the suite not included in this sample are Chicken Wire Elements*, Braided Linen Trim* and Galvanized Clips*, plus the Country Lane Designer Series Paper*.
