Sunshine in October

Greeting Stampers! The weather is starting to chill and I have to admit, I'm not much of a wintery cold weather type of person. I love summer and flipflops. But sadly my favorite pair of sandals broke as if to tell me to get ready for the changing season. Fortunately I have a second emergency pair. haha. Like a spare tire, my emergency flipflops aren't the best but they will do for now. *sigh* I actually had to break out the fuzzy boots a few nights ago because it was so cold out.

In my vain attempt to hold onto summer's dwindling warmth, I searched the gallery for sunshiney cards and here they are! YES, I can feeeeel July emanating from these cards. =)

Tasha said...

This is my favourite time of year. I love it when its dark outside when you wake up and when you get home. I love the cosy feel of being inside whilst it rains. But the best bit is that all the shops start playing christmas music. Oh and its my birthday on christmas day so i guess im a littln swayed by that too lol. Love tasha x x

Amy said...

I am SO ready for fall, I love the cool crisp mornings and bundling up in sweaters and blankets... mmmmmmm... :)

montygonza said...

I love those cards, the colouring is wonderful.

We are currently getting ready for spring but mother nature is fooling around down here and has dusted us with snow and rain.

Ria said...

Ohh nooooo I am never ready for fall or winter :( I am such a summerchild. Born in the summer and i really miss the warm sunshine in the coming months ;( the only good thing about fall/winter is XMAS I think I need to move to one of the caribean islands ;) LOL

hugs Ria

Stefanie said...

I am so totally ready for the fall!!! I love the chilly air and big warm sweaters!! I am NOT a summer girl! The heat makes me grouch! >:-[

Nena said...

I LOVE the warm seasons and usually
dread the cold months. I will say
now that I have Grandchildren I am
really enjoying the holidays which
makes the winter months a blessing.
Thank you for the cheery cards; I
love your blog~~~thank you!!

MicheyMoo said...

I wasn't yet ready to say goodbye to winter here in Australia apparently. We've had big dumps of late snow nearby and the windchill is almost sub zero!! Argggh!! I love winter.....but the days were just starting to warm up and I was enjoying that too!! Spring lasted for 2 mins and we were then straight back into winter weather.

I love the changing seasons.....but don't like the hot, sticky summer days all that much.

Kim Y. said...

Awesome cards!
I am ready for WINTER! I don't really like Fall because it's cold in the morning, hot during the day and cold at night.....

O.....can't wait what's new...

Christine said...

That makes me long for summer again! NOT!!!

Blessings,
Christine

Caz said...

I am all ready for Autumn/Fall. The leaves have all changed colour in the last week and now they are all over the pavement rather than on the tree...I so love the blue skies, nip in the air and the amazing sunsets.

Kris said...

Beautiful Line up of cards!!! love the bright summery colors.... well, can't say i'm ready for fall since it feels like summer all year long in Hawaii! but i love the changing of the season and the colors of the leaves... too bad i can only enjoy it on TV...

Angie said...

Fabulous lineup today! I love the Autumn, with the new colors that pop up in the flora, and the cooler, crisp mornings and evenings! But I'm not too excited about the bitter cold winter that follows... Oh, and I totally feel your pain on the Flip-flop problem! I am a "slippahs" kinda gal, even when it's cold, and having the right pair makes all the difference!

crafty amy said...

They are all sooo cute and very summery :D I am not ready for fall at all I hate getting up and having to leave for work and come back in the dark :(

Pöydän kulmalla näpertelijä said...

We have snow in Northern Finland, so I should be ready for winter.

~*Joni said...

Ohhh I hear you Marie. I am a summer girl too, this fall weather has brought on coughing and sniffling in my household. :(
Thank you for the summer card line up! The brightness is perfect for this chilly morning. I needed it as I am sitting here in sweatpants and a hoodie. bleh.

SannaS said...

Lovely cards! Brilliant creations! =)
NO NO NO for me too, I don't like the weather cooling, I want summer back, NOW! =)
Hugs, SannaS

Jenn Borjeson said...

Rachel said...

Yes, I absolutely, positively LOVE fall. I had my Halloween decorations up last month and we've been getting the fire pit out at night and "burning" (daughters words) marshamallows. Love it!

Susa said...

StampinCathy said...

The cards are all so inspiring and very creative.
I'm ready for fall! I just love to see all the beautiful colors of the leaves changing.

Renie said...

I love, love, love, the fall! I love the smells of fires burning, wearing jeans and sweatshirts, and in MI we have beautiful changing colors! I say bring it on.......but winter can stay at bay!

Can't wait to see what you have in store for us!

Sue D said...

Great cards! I like all the seasons so I am ready for Fall--it is my favorite!

Molly Joly said...

Love the summery cards!

I enjoy autumn - but it seems like here in Iowa we go from summer to winter without much of a pause! I like to enjoy it for awhile!

Krista said...

No I'm not ready but the Adirondacks don't give me much choice....

Pam S. said...

I'm wondering if we aren't skipping Fall and heading right into Winter! EEK! lol
Hope it warms up some again!
Pam Going Postal

Julie said...

No... not really. Want to hold on to the slightly warm weather just a little bit longer. (This is UK. We didn't get HOT this summer. But a warmer weather sure is better than the cool autumn weather!)

Carol said...

I love Fall...but it has been really cold here in Michigan this last week. I need at least 60's or snow! lol

Mary said...

Beautiful cards! Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. Love the leaves changing colors. What I'm not ready for is winter. And they are saying snow up here in Maine on Tuesday!!!

Mary

JenRaff said...

I love autumn! But we don't see it much here in Florida. However, I am grateful that our "winter" isn't icy cold! I will take heat any day!

Amy's Stocking Stuffers said...

Oh, you have no idea how very ready for fall I am! Here it is October, and it's still so hot and humid in Houston that my glasses steam up completely every time I walk outside!

JanJ said...

We had such a rubbish Summer here in the UK & so far Autumn has been gorgeous, so it's more than welcome! And it's such a beautiful time of the year, all those gorgeous colours.

Tammy said...

What great cards! Can't wait for the 15th!!!!!!!!!! :)

Rachel said...

I am SO ready for fall! I have my jacket ready... but it has been really warm here South Carolina still.

Katie Cotton said...

love these cards!

I'm definitely ready for fall! I love the colors and the new makeup and fashion trends and definitely anything pumpkin! :)

Donna said...

I am never ready for Fall. It is always one big blur.

The cards are beautiful, but they didn't make it feel any warmer here in Thunder Bay, Ontario - Canada.

Melissa Craig said...

Beautiful cards!! Yes, I love Fall. Love the colors. Being a Colorado girl, love the changing of the Aspens... living in WV - talk about GORGEOUS colors.

Moni said...

Waw so fab creations, lvoe them all! Yes I am ready for fall! Hugs,moni

Steph Zerbe said...

Yes, yes, yes. Love the fall season! The colors, the cool air. I live in North Carolina so the cool air is welcomed. However, it's never cool enough during Halloween... under that witch hat and wig!
Makes for a crankier witch, and that's a good thing!

Jessica said...

I'm ready for fall, but soooo not ready for winter. I do love the fall leaves changing, cozy sweaters, cocoa and cider, and all that goes along with the colder weather, though.

PaperCrafty said...

Fabulous cards!! Not ready for Fall but I will take it over Winter!! :D

kat9 said...

No I am not ready for fall. That just means Winter around here and MN has too much snow and cold for me....why stay? family and friends.

Tracy.H said...

Wow! These are all wonderful...especially love the Edward card! ;0)

I guess I am ready for fall...not so ready for winter though...and that is what it feels like today! More snow in the forecast today...yuck! :0(

Berenice said...

So cute cards! So ready, I love Fall :)

Tanya said...

Wow love the cards. I can feel the warmth coming off of them.

I am not ready for fall or winter at all! I love the 70 and 80° temperatures.

Callie said...

I think we passed fall here in Idhao... woke up to a very chilly 22 degrees this morning. BRRRR... i do love the fall colors though.

Danni said...

Oh my! I feel so honored that you featured a card by me!! thank you!!
Ready for fall? I wish...we don't get much of a fall here in El Paso so I live through everyone else..I really miss it!!

MiamiKel said...

Yes, I am! Though in Miami, we don't get much of anything but SUMMER ,lol!

Jen said...

Fall still has not reached Vegas! But yes I'm ready for it, you could pretty much wear flip flops year around here.

Jamie K said...

What beautiful cards. Really nice and cheery when its overcast and 40-degrees out...

Stephanie said...

Great cards! I'm just about ready for fall, I just have to put out the fall decor and put away our summer attire!

Tanya Rudd said...

No I am not ready for the cold wet fall weather. Thank you for showing us some sun. My Dad lives in Colorado, I will gladly trade you your climate, over our cold North in Ottawa Canada.

Jennifer said...

Yes, I'm ready. Tired of the heat.

PatsyB said...

I live in SC and it is still 80 here. I so love fall and winter. My son just moved to Denver, CO and he says they are calling for snow already. He has never been around snow so he is in for a treat (or trick!!) I am so ready for some cooler weather so my bulldogs can get outside and play some! Can't do it in the summer heat!! These cards are great!!

Monkichi said...

Beautiful cards!! Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside!

Crafty Num Nums said...

I love the cards, they are all so cute!!!

I am so not ready for fall, not that I really like the 100+ degree weather, but cold and I dont mix, LOL!!!

Ida P. Krause said...

I love Fall - The colors are just amazing and there's nothing better then a nice cup of cocoa or coffee on a crisp autumn morning and maybe a nice warm chocolate chip cookie or two (or three....)

AShu93 said...

Don't think fall technically starts until Sep 20 or 21. I'm not ready for fall because we didn't get much warmth this summer & it means 6 months of cold coming!

Pam Varnell said...

Beautiful cards all around. Loving all the orange.

A big YES on the ready for fall question. I live in GA and it's still in the 80's here. Ready for some 60's!!!

Heather said...

Of the cards are adorable!!!

and to answer your question...no, I'm absolutely not ready. I need the sunny days of summer back at least until I get all of the cool weather clothes out.

Stephanie said...

=( Fall has been miserable here this year - we went from 90^F on labour day weekend, right down to 37^F the day after. It's been rainy & windy, and downright cold! Oh well - at least it's not -40 yet! (AND hubs is working on the house, instead of harvesting... that's a mixed blessing.)

Carisa said...

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ready for fall. It's my FAVORITE Season. I hate being hot. LOL Days like today are divine for me. Snuggle up with some hot chocolate....Nothing better. hehe

MaryBeth said...

Oh yes! I love the cool, crisp weather and the amazing colors of all the leaves. My favorite season of all.

Tammy said...

Yes where has Summer gone. It's cold and wet here in SW Missouri. :-(
I guess it's time for the sweaters.
I just hope we have a Fall season this year. I love the Fall but it feels like Winter is closing in fast.

Erin said...

I live in MN. Our seasons are Summer, Winter, Winter, & Winter. The cool weather started about 2 weeks ago and they are calling for flurries this Sat. night. YUK!

jstacy said...

Yes, I love fall! The colors are amazing! Love the cards too.
~Jody~

Shaela said...

gorgeous cards! I am ready for Autumn, it is my favorite season :)

MommaJess said...

Wow what pretty cards. I am wishing I had some of that talent.

Fall is my fave season and so I am definately ready. We are going apple picking this weekend and then making pie, cider and sauce. Yum.

Kim Etherington said...

Somewhat ready. Got the warm vests out and warm boots ready to go, but still trying to squeeze in any flipflop wear i can.

Annie said...

oooh, these are so beautiful and so bright and sunny! I love them all!!! :)

Dragonlady said...

pinky said...

I love love love fall, well autumn over here lol. Beautiful oranges, browns and reds, still some heat in the sunshine with a little ting of frostiness, perfect.
Pinky

Tina said...

Great cards!

No, I'm not ready. Although, I do like fall, but that means winter is drawing near and I'm definately not ready for winter. I've lived in Indiana all my life and still cannot get used to the cold weather. I hate it! :)

Mette said...

Super cards in my favorite colour - orange.
Am I ready for fall - No No No. But it's here and like you said it's definately getting chilly - here in the UK too. Holding off putting the heating on but I have a 3 year old ............ maybe tomorrow.
Can't wait for your new give-away next week.
Hugs, Mette

Craftyanny said...

Pretty cards today ladies.
I love autumn, crips, fresh mornings, so yes, I'm ready
Anne x

Lisa Hjulberg said...

Oh, I love all these cards... but they remind me more of autumn than summer. I think that's because I'm a fall/winter gal. Maybe we should trade places... you come down to So Cal and I'll go to Colorado!

Yes, I'm more than ready for fall... too bad we get such a stingy one here in So Cal. In fact, we're in for a heat wave and Santa Ana winds one of these days... (sigh).

Stephanie said...

luv luv these cards! so bright and sunny...adorable! I refuse to accept it's fall. I still wear my summer clothes...did i mention i live in southern california? :)

Tracey Feeger said...

We just came into spring so no not looking forward to fall at all. Bring on summer. LOL.

mwah

Caroline said...

Yes, I'm ready for fall. I love the colours of autumn. Not ready for the white stuff that follows though.

Mary said...

Beautiful colors!
Our climate is so mild...however this summer was a warm one so I am glad to be done with that!
So I guess yes I am ready for fall!

Heidi Brawley said...

OMG! YESSSSSSSS! I am ready for fall. Living here in Tucson, AZ where it is hotter than hell all summer long I am soooooo ready for Fall!!!!!!!!!!!! With open arms too! Love the cards from the gallery you picked out too!!!

glowinshadow23 said...

I love fall because of the tree leaves changing colors!
