Autumn Moon

I made this card awhile ago in honor of all things fall.  There are a couple of well-watered trees in my neighborhood that were imported from back east.  That is noteworthy because that means the leaves turn colors and fall off.  Native trees can't be bothered with such nonsense.
The yellowish half circle in the background made me think of an autumn moon on a slightly cloudy but crisp, clean night. I miss those fall evenings crunching through the leaves and watching summer come to an end.  In my mind I miss them that is.  In my lungs, that's another story, as dried out leaves and cooler weather always pestered my asthma.

PJ this is a beautiful card. As far as falling leaves, my front and back yards are full of golden leaves that need to be raked, and as I'm lucky enough NOT to have asthma I'll have to get out there tomorrow and at least make piles of leaves for DH to put in the trash. Yes, I will be thinking of you sitting inside nice and cozy as I rake wet leaves......LOL

That's a beautiful card and I love the sentiment. Been missing you on WOYWW and then I remembered I follow you so you're in my dashboard! In other words, I couldn't figure out how to get here until I remembered that! :) And can you believe I'm in school for a Master's degree?! lol Anyways, I wanted to say beautiful card and Hi! :)
