FCCB #129 End of Summer

Happy Monday Friends!

I am so excited that we finally experienced some fall like weather this weekend.  

This week's challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is End of Summer. 

The design team created inspiration for you featuring things that remind us of summer.

I took a more literal view and opted to 
create my card showing the beginning 
and ending of all the seasons.  The end 
of one brings the beginning of another 
and constantly cycles.

I am reminded of  Ecclesiastes 3:1 

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 

I used Gypsy Wanderings for the trees
 and leaves, Freshly Picked for the fallen 
leaves of fall and the blossoms of spring and CTMH Art Philosophy for the mat.

Other supplies were:

Distress Ink - Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, 
Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade 
and Gathered Twigs.

The base was made from a sheet of 
Cosmo Cricket I had in my stash.  
This is a very simple card for me and 
I'm not sure if I like it or not.   
But, it is good to get out of your comfort 
zone on occasion.  
It spurs your creativity.

I would love to see your projects.  
Head over to  

and link them up.  Make sure to
 check out all of the other inspiration 
from the entire design team!


  1. Janae- Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment! Your cards are beautiful! This scene from beginning to end of fall looks great! I love the colors you used and how you mixed the cartridge elements so well!. Thanks for sharing your artwork and the Cricut challenge blog. I'll have to check out that site.
