Why They Call it Fall !

     I know we're only a third of the way through August but I get tired of the miserably hot weather some time in early July each summer and I begin pining for fall leaves and changing colors that come with the cooler evenings of autumn.  Here's my salute to the end of summer this year!  :-D

     I have this adorable kitten from Mo's Digital Pencil which I don't think I've used before (shame on me!) and it seemed a perfect time to dig it out and color it.  Since we're talking fall colors, I made the kitten a calico, patterned after my own sweet Queenie (see the right-hand sidebar.)

Inspired by the sketch at Sketch Saturday,
turned 1/4 turn.

Hi, Connie. Not only is your kitty sweeter than sweet, but your card is just beautiful! Loving the orange and gray in your kitty, and that wistful, ponderous expression on her dear face. Beautifully autumn (wonder when that might happen here? Maybe November or December for a couple weeks?) LOL Wishing you the best of health, and lots more fun crafting, my friend. hugs, de

Oh my goodness how cute is this card! I adore the sweet kitty. I love fall/autumn too with the wonderful colours that natures creates.

Colors are definitely fall flavored. The kitty is adorable and also colored perfectly to coincide with the fall theme. We've had some cool evenings here these past two weeks but it's back to hot and humid. Also looking forward to fall.
Hugs, Carol
