Thankful for you! - AHSC #179

I have a love/hate relationship with fall. I love the fall colours, the feel of the season, the leaves changing, and the cool crisp nights. What I do not like, in fact I will use this harsh word...hate...is that it puts me farther from summer and closer to the 6 months that is winter! Now that I got that off my chest, I will cherish the time we have in this wonderful fall season and really enjoy it!

So as I stated I love all things fall and fall colours so I could not wait to get my hands on the Swan Lake papers and Swans. I finally got my order in but could not bear to cut the paper just yet....I need to cherish it a bit more so I did use up some of my Florence which reminded me a lot of Fall colours but I did get out my Swan thin cuts and went put it to work for this card for the this weeks AHSC #179.
