When I saw this week's CAS(e) This Sketch I knew exactly what stamps I wanted to pull out.
I've always love the "Take Three" series by Papertrey Ink, and the fall images are great. I chose pumpkins for this card.
You can see by the shadows that the pumpkins were attached with some dimensional tape. This card also meets the challenge at Addicted to CAS: Autumn/Fall.
We had a fabulous weekend in the Adirondacks this past weekend. We left at 6:00 am, stopped in Old Forge for a hearty brunch, and dropped off the intrepid backpackers around noon.
Bob and Tracy have been working to hike most of the 46 High Peaks in the Adirondacks. Cathy and I have done a few as well with our kids when they were growing up, but we gave up serious backpacking quite a few years ago. After dropping the guys off, we head for Keene Valley for a bit of shopping (turned out neither of us bought a thing), and then checked into our hotel in Wilmington, NY. This was the view of Whiteface Mt. from our balcony.
We drove into Lake Placid, did some window shopping and had a lovely dinner overlooking Mirror Lake. The next morning we had a fabulous breakfast at our favorite diner, did a bit of shopping, and then changed into our sneakers to walk around Mirror Lake.
It was a stunning day, in the mid-70's and sunny. By the time we got around the lake (about 2 1/2 miles) we were pretty warm and headed back to our hotel. We sat on our balcony, had some veggies and dip, and enjoyed the wonderful fall day. We decided not to drive back into Lake Placid and went to a lovely restaurant just a mile or so from our hotel. We'd been there before. The food is great, and very reasonable. I'll leave you with one last photo of the stream that runs by the parking lot of the restaurant.
The leaves are beginning to turn here, but it will be a couple of weeks before it's as beautiful here as it was in the Adirondacks. (The guys, by the way, had a great time, and added another peak to their list.)
