I have a secret..I don't like pumpkin pie. Never have and probably never will. And it wasn't until recently that I'll even try anything with pumpkin in it. After all, it's just squash disguised as dessert and I'm all about being forthcoming about what's in my food!
That doesn't stop me from enjoying the scent of pumpkin spice. Cloves, cinnamon, and allspice, mixed with a bit of vanilla and maybe a hint of apple and you've got the perfect fall combination! In fact, I think I just described my all time favorite Bath & Body Works candle - Leaves!
With the kids heading back to college - the Lad leaves today - and school starting starting in a week and half, I'm ready for fall. No more of this heat and humidity when school starts, please. I'm over the scent of sunscreen and cut grass. I'm ready for crunchy leaves, high school football games, apple pie...and pumpkin spice scented candles.
Today's card features the Merry Cafe (available 9/1) and Coffee Cafe Bundle, along with the gorgeous Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (available 9/1). The cup is cut from the Tangerine Tango polka dot Foil Frenzy Specialty Paper. It's super thick and add's a nice layer on top of the card. The leaves area cut from Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry using theSeasonal Layers Thinlet Dies. Adding the texture of the Cable Knit Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder makes it feel all warm and cozy. It may seem like a lot of layers, but it's all worth it.
