CAS395 - Falling into Fall
1 Attachment(s)
Challenge Title: Falling into Fall

Hostess: Kia (kiagc)
Keyword: CAS395
Date: Week of September 19th, 2016

We are only a few days from the Fall Equinox, which begins on Thursday, September 22, 2016. I could not be happier ... cooler air and beautiful colours will soon be upon us.

So, for today's CAS challenge I would like it if you used falling items on your card. It does not have to be leaves, it can be falling stars, falling snow, falling hearts. You get the drift.

Thanks so much for playing along in this week's Clean and Simple challenge.

And, not to disappoint, a few fun facts about Fall.

Red and purple leaves are actually caused by the presence of sugars from sap that is trapped inside of the leaves.

Yellow, orange and variations thereof always reside in the pigmentation of tree leaves, but they are overpowered by the abundance of green from the chlorophyll in the leaves. Come autumn, when the sun weakens and days grow shorter, the amount of chlorophyll in leaves diminishes, allowing the other pigments in the leaves to show through.

Fall is a peak migration time for many species of birds. During autumn, birds will fly to other areas seeking more hospitable climates. The Arctic tern journeys about 11,000 miles each way for its annual migration. That is like going all the way across the United States about three and a half times

Contrary to popular belief, squirrels who have spent the entire autumn collecting acorns and other foods do not hibernate for the winter. Rather, they spend the majority of their time in nests they built to shelter them from harsh weather. When squirrels do come out in winter, they are usually tunneling under the snow to find the food they buried during the fall.

You’re bound to see pumpkins as part of autumn decor. The pumpkin was first named by the Greeks. They called this edible orange item “pepon,” which means “large melon.”

Love the challenge, Kia, but not so much the card I created. :( Too much water and brushing made the paper peel, but love the image and sentiment. :)

This challenge came up at the right time! I needed a sympathy card for a friend whose father passed away. My stamp time is limited to late nights right now. So I grabbed my Totally Trees which can be autumn or any season. I am falling in love with this set even though this is the first time I've inked it! So versite and quick. Nothin but straight up stamping needed.
