Changing Seasons

Today feels like summer, but the cooler evenings and the crispness of the air hints at fall.  It won't be long before the leaves turn spectacular colors and the "leaf peepers" flock to Maine for the views of autumn in her glory.  Here's one last card celebrating the green. It's one of the cards we'll create in this afternoon's class at Your Maine Stamper.
