I {heart} Autumn

Have I mentioned that Autumn is my most favorite season? I fell in love with it when I was young living in the super hot state of Texas! lol After moving to Connecticut... it's not ever had any other season even come close to knocking it off its pedestal. 
While living in Connecticut, I discovered all the fun things to do besides just cooler weather Texas had taught me. My love for the season only deepened when we moved to New Hampshire. I. Just. LOVE. Autumn! lol Back then, my adult children were teenagers but still allowed me to drag them around to family outings. I discovered apple picking... hay rides... corn mazes... donuts and apple cider... the love of sweaters... the beautiful rich colors... oranges, golds, reds, browns and greens... long drives just enjoying the scenery... in NH, there were two towns that went all out with what I grew to call Scarecrow City and Pumpkin Town. They were just what the name implies. :)
I've just made an Autumn card that is gonna be my favorite card for this year. I am thinking of framing it and putting it in my kitchen... which by the way... coincidentally... is decorated in Autumn colors! :) First... let me start by showing you this fantastic image I've colored from Anonymous Stamps freebies:
Can you believe that it can get better? Well, it can! lol

I meant to make this in my favorite twisted easel format but I got distracted. I'd already completed the inside:
