Weekend FUN & A Fall Card

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

What a weekend it was here!
I had a great time with my friend Deb Saturday at the Heirloom Stamp Show in York, PA.
We were very disappointed that half the usual vendors were not there this time. Neither one of us found what we went there looking for but we made the best of it and finished up with lunch at Chili's! 

Saturday evening my hubby & I went to the Pumpkin Walk on the York Heritage Rail Trail. We went early to beat the crowds. They say they have 2000 people attend this from all over Pennsylvania & Maryland. This was our first year attending and I thought it was nice and the weather was even better! Part of the trail is lined up with decorated pumpkins for about half a mile on both sides. I'm sure it was probably awesome to go when it got dark and especially since it was full moon!

Here are a few pictures...

These little train cars are so cool. I've seen them & a bunch of other ones one Sunday afternoon Shawn & I were biking. I believe it's a club. 

Shawn & I walking. There were lots of people!

This is part of the rail trail that was not decorated for the Pumpkin Walk so we walked a bit farther before dark time set in.

The pumpkins were carved by kids and adults and each had a little tealight inside so when it got dark the pumpkin lit up. This is all done for a fun family evening out to raise money for the York Heritage Rail Trail Authority so they can continue to build trails for the public to get out and enjoy.
We have come to love the York Heritage Rail Trail and try to get out and walk or bike it as much as we possibly can! 

So now onto a card that I was inspired to create after my Pumpkin Walk Saturday.
I saw that the trees are changing colors and the leaves are starting to gently fall to the ground around here. Here is my card of falling leaves....

 Such pretty fall colors!

Falling Leaves Card:

Stamps: Impression Obsession
Ink: Early Espresso
Cardstock: Confetti Cream (retired), Early Espresso, The Paper Studio DSP
Accessories: Circle Punches, Rhinestones, Dimensional, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue


My thoughts....

Most definitely get out there and find the beauty in every day!

That is all for me on the beautiful fall day!
Thanks for stopping by & have a terrific day!

Nice fall card! So happy to see the leaves beginning to change. Mom and I went to the convention on Saturday afternoon and noticed a few of the regular vendors were missing. Was told there was another convention in TN and some went there instead. Was happy to see Stamps by Judith though - she is Mom's favorite company. Have to say though, it was nice in the afternoon since the mad rush had died down and we could walk without having to wiggle in between so many people. Hopefully next year, the other vendors will come back to York.

Oh Wendy, I really like this card! The diagonal panel looks so nice with that great sentiment, and I just came in from sitting on the porch watching leaves fall - what a coincidence! Thanks for sharing the pictures - it looks like you and Shaun had a fun autumn day on your walk, and I love those pumpkins! Have a wonderful autumn week ahead!

That looks like a fun Autumn walk! I also love the leaf card. Perfect for this color changing weather. Not really sure I want the temps back in the 80's.
