Autumn Days

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by!
My title for today's post, "Autumn Days" is pretty much wishful thinking on my part!  As a matter of fact, as I write this, we are getting ready for what will be soon be Hurricane Isaac.  At this point it looks as if we will be getting lots of rain and possibly some wind.  We have put away all the pool toys, lawn chairs and anything that looks like it might take flight!  The forecast for our area is lots and lots of rain and thunderstorms over the next few days.  I think we will be fine...wet...but fine.  Don't forget to say a prayer for all those who will not be getting off as lightly.

Ok, on to my card!  I have been having so much fun playing along with the Peachy Keen weekly challenges.  I have used stamped sentiments for a long time, but coloring stamped images is pretty new for me.  I'm still a bit intimidated by my Copic Markers, but I am enjoying them more and more with each image I color.  This week's challenge (Challenge 31) is a sketch challenge.  Here's my version of this week's sketch...

I just love scarecrows and this little guy is so, so cute!

* I started with a Kraft paper card base
*Printed papers are from the DCWV paper stack "Autumn Splendor"
*Scarecrow - Peachy Keen - "Faceless Scarecrow Dolls-Large"
* Face - Peachy Keen - "Monster Mash Face Assortment"
* Sentiment - CTMH - "Charmed" stamp set
* Leaves - Cricut - "Art Philosophy" cartridge
* Copic Markers

* I used my sewing machine to do a bit of stitching around the layers
* I gathered my Crinkle Ribbon to create a ruffle effect
* Leaves were embossed with "Divine Swirls" embossing folder.

Well, that's my card for today!  I need to get busy and get supper on the table.  I hope to have another project to share with you in a few days, but I'm thinking that may depend on the weather.  I'm hoping that we don't lose power, but you just never know about these hurricanes!  If you are anywhere in the path of this store, batten down the hatches and you will be in my prayers!

Until next time,
