Fall is here….Challenge #172 at Shopping Our Stash is The Most Colourful Time of the Year.

Looking for my Clear it Out post scroll down or click HERE.
Whether we want it or not Fall is here and here in SWO the trees are changing colours although we have not had a frost yet. We have had a lot of rain in the past 4 days, the old Indian says When the ponds are full Winter will come.
At Shopping our Stash we want to see your fall colours so head on over there, check out the rules and see what the design team has made for your inspiration.
I haven’t used my House Mouse stamps in a little while and this one just wanted out of the box. I made an easel card, they are very easy to make and go together quite fast.
Here is the card closed for mailing. I stamped the image twice so I could pop the little rodent up and three of the leaves.

Here is a close look at the paper and the button.
