BC281: Fall

Today over at Blogger's Challenge we are working our way into Fall.  With the temperatures cooling off (just a little anyway) and the leaves about to start changing, and football season in full swing-we start thinking of FALL creations.

I sat down the other night to stamp and was on a roll.  That doesn't happen too often and I'm hoping that tonight will prove to be another one of those nights as I have a lot I want to get accomplished so that tomorrow night I can work on getting caught up on my Project Life album.

When I think of fall, it's the changing leaves here in GA that really make the season for me.  I love the cooler weather but my husband reminds me as I complain about how hot it is that soon I'll be complaining how cold it is (there is not heating or air in my little basement stamping area).

I pulled out this gorgeous tree from Clear & Simple Stamps called Happy Fall.  I created my little strip by coloring various copic markers on a strip of paper and blending them.  Once I was happy with that, I stamped the leave background randomly on it to create my pattered paper.


I combined a few different challenges for this card- I used the SSD144 Sketch but instead of adding a sentiment, I added the cute little park bench with squirrel on top.  The Paper Craft's Gallery Challenge this month is the Natural Element (I used twine and twill ribbon) and the Paper Player's Challenge this week is to use Leaves/Trees.

Hope it's cooling off where you are and that we'll see your fall creations over at Blogger's Challenge.
