Happy Birthday....

It's time again for the
challenge. 


This weeks theme is:
Falling into Autumn
(plus a sentiment)

Happy Birthday...



I knew right away that this image Pumpkin Bouquet from Fred She Said colored with copics, would be perfect for this card.  I used a sweet orange plaid paper for the background, and a pumpkin paper (oops! upside down) adorned with some orange twine, added some punched circles of the same mat paper used to back the image and Happy Birthday sentiment (from Words collection of Scribbles Designs), and finally some orange bling to have some fun.

Life Goes On...

Hey!  There's snow in them there hills!  It's getting closer.  Now, mind you, I do like snow - up on the mountains not here in the valley.  I'm thinking the Snow Gods aren't going to hear my plea!  Hmmphf!

So how's everyone these days?  I skirted the cold fairly well... what I thought would be a major slam ended being sniffles... yay!  Although its still cold season... another Hmmmphf!

Truly not much else happening around here.  Working on craft fair items; design team commitments and creating new images... 

Thought for the Day...

Enjoying the fall colors... hope you do too...

This is so well designed. The image is beautiful and I love those layered circles against the brown background. Great use of matting layers to give impact to the image and sentiment. Thanks for joining our Anything Goes/Add Twine challenge this fortnight at Craftitude. I hope you join us again soon.
