I love, love, love fall. So had fun last weekend making several fall themed cards. Finally have a chance to share them. For the first, I used a sweet image from Di's Digi Stamps named "Peace on the Prairie" [now available for just $1.00] and am entering it into Di's current challenge.  Colored the Native Princess and her furry friends with Spectrum Nior markers, fussy cut them and set out to decide on a background. Couldn't find a stamp or background paper that fit my fancy, then remembered my stash of upcycled calendar pages. That is where I found the perfect fit. Softened it a bit with a bit of vellum that I attached by cutting slits into the background and slipping the vellum corners underneath. Then adhered the trio of watchers. Finished the card with a beautiful butterfly. And added a second butterfly to the inside sentiment [which is from a Whimsy stamp digi set named "Vintage Sentiments."] Am entering this card into a few other challenges including the Butterfly Challenge where the card follows two of the "Letter A" requirements, color s[apricot and azure in the background and images] plus theme [add layering] and the Cutie Pie Challenge that requires shades of Autumn colors plus the card must be cute. What isn't cuter than a little trio of friends?

The current Creative Confetti at PowerPoppy is named "Designing in the Dark." It requires that the background be darker in tone. I decided use Power Poppy's beautiful set named "Maize for Days." Printed the ears of corn on Kraft brown paper and colored them with watercolor pencils, plus added a bit of white gel pen to add realism to the kernels of corn and berries.

For this card, I used an adorable digi image named "Harvest Raccoon" from Little Scraps of Heaven. (You can find the image here, in a set with several others, and now on sale for just $1! I made a circle card and used a harvest photo from an upcycled calendar page for the background. Colored the sweet little image with Spectrum Noir markers and white gel pen, fussy-cut and attached him to a circle card. [The background kind of overwhelmed the image so I layered a circle of vellum behind him. The sentiment is a freebie from TLC Creations (
Am entering this into a few challenged including The Paper Shelter that requires a sentiment and the current mood board at SumMoreFun that features harvest scenes.
