IC402 Welcome Autumn


Hello everyone....hope you are having a great evening!!! My sweet granddaughter, Mackenzie, is spending a few days with us so I better get to bed early...I know she will want to spend the day tomorrow shopping till we drop...yikes!!! I better take my Geratol...LOL!!!! Anyway....

Stef asked me to make a sample card for her Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast tonight...she picks a different store each week for us to find inspiration. I found this adorable owl onesie for my inspiration piece...it's sooo cute!!!

My card features stamps from two Paper Smooches sets: the owl from Chubby Chums and the branch, leaves, and sentiment from Autumn Groves. The owl was colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up with foam tape. The branch was stamped on a piece of wood grained scrap and the leaves were stamped with Tangerine Tango and Cajun Craze. Sewing and distressing around the edges finish it off. 



I thought I would share a couple of pictures of my sweet little Pumpkin....he rules the roost around here...LOL!!!!

Thanks for stopping by.....Have a great day!!!
