Signs of Autumn

Finally, I am back in my craft room celebrating the signs of fall; cooler weather and fall colors. Autumn has always been my favorite of the seasons even with my allergies. I like the crispness of cooler temperatures and the fabulous changing of the color of the leaves. 

It is this time of year when inspiration can be found all around. All one has to do is look at the trees, explore your local craft store decorations and of course the little ones asking when they can go and get their costumes.  

With Halloween upon us there was no question that one of my cards would be a Halloween card and with the trees lining the highways with a multi-color treeline, I had to create a card that would not only represent Thanksgiving but would represent the colors of Autumn.

So without any more unnecessary chit-chat here are my cards for this post. 

My first card didn't take very long to make and used items from my stash.  I created my background using Oxide inks and masked out a moon.  Both the witch and the tree are die-cuts and the "Get Spooked" greeting is actually a sticker that I added to a piece of chipboard and then added a bit of foam to add dimension.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Artistic Inspiration - #189 Anything Goes "Spook it Up" (11/10)
Always Fun Challenge - #30 Halloween (11/04)
Shopping Our Stash - Halloween (11/06)
Digi Choosday - #44 Anything Goes (11/14)

I used an image from Poppy Power titled "Harvest" and colored it using my favorite Copic markers. You may notice that I flipped the image before I printed it so that the handles wouldn't be hidden by my flowers.  I used papers from My Minds Eye (MME), flowers are Recollection and Prima, and the greeting is from a collection by Fiskars. I used my favorite fall colors, orange, green, brown, yellow and red.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Pin Inspiration Challenge - #202 Photo Inspiration (11/06)
Crafting From The Heart - #181 Anything Goes (11/04)
Die Cuttin Divas - #341 Pumpkins (11/05)
Creates and Makes - #16 Anything Goes (11/25)
A Snowflake Promise - #45 Anything Goes (11/10)

The trick-or-treaters are here so that's all for now.  So guys don't get spooked (for those that participate in Halloween) and I'll see you next time.

Thanks for stopping by
Sending hugs from Texas
