Almost Fall

I use these two images every fall and they remind me of back to school, fresh cool air, leaves falling, pumpkins, shorter days. We have had two beautiful days here in the Philadelphia area. It has been cool enough to turn off the air conditioning and open up the windows. Sitting out on the back porch after dinner with a glass of wine has been very relaxing.

The digital images are from Sassy Cheryl’s Stamps. I love how she brings childrens images to life with her sassiness.

Autumn SwingThis sweet image is called Autumn Swing. I used Copic markers to color the image and the papers, ribbon, cardstock and sentiment are from Stamps of Life (Happiness Collection). Stitched circle is Die-namics from My Favorite Things.

Noah's Prize Winning Pumpkin

I couldn’t leave the boys out. Look at this cute little fella. This image is Noah’s Prize Winning Pumpkin. I colored him with copics as well. I added a little detail with a copic liner on the pumpkin which I learned over at The Daily Marker where Kathy encouraged us to practice “eyelashes” — tiny lines to add some more interest to an image.  Adding the lines really made the pumpkin pop. I also used a wood grain embossing folder on Kraft cardstock. The sentiment is an Elizabeth Crafts die.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Hi Anne,

    Thanks so much for your kind words. Brody was just the medicine our broken hearts needed… and he’s such a sweetie. Good for you, too, for rescuing an older dog. This is the third rescue we’ve adopted, and I swear they know that they’ve been given a second chance.

    I’m with Carol. These two cards are just adorable! I love the images and colors.
