Happy Fall

Hi ladies.... I'm back to share my Autumn card with you

I used a Bugaboo image which I coloured with my Prismacolor pencils.  Added some Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to bits and pieces.   I trimmed the panel and added dark green and  yellow card behind it.  It was  then added to a purple card base.

Please make sure you come see our challenge and have fun.

Autumn Owl and Winter Fairy


Be sure to play with the Die Cut Divas for the October MOOD challenge.  It should be fun and get you in the mood for Autumn. Our sponsor is Bugaboo Digi Stamps and they have some darling images.

My first card for October 7th was fun to color and quite an easy scene to create. That little owl just makes me smile.

It was so much fun to add Nuvo Crystal drops to this little owl's eyes and the nails on the fence.  I love how Nuvo makes that pumpkin glisten.

I hope you like this little scene and the closeup.

Next up is a Winter Fairy

I couldn't help myself. I had to see how a Winter fairy would look in Autumn colors, using the mood board above.  I think she turned out fantastic.  I actually love the leggings.  I hope you are inspired to go Autumn.

Almost Sledding Time

I know it's only September and too soon for sledding, but I thought this would make some boy happy, maybe some older boy whose birthday was near winter and he received the key to the car.  Maybe?   Whichever, I thought a blue and yellow card was the combo for me.  Please join us for the challenge at Die Cut Divas.

I die-cut the sled parts and used floss for the reins for the sled.  I've pulled apart twine so it would fit in the holes too.  Whatever you decide to use, use something, because there is a greater impact and enjoyment of the finished sled with some kind of reins.
