Ushering in the Season...FALL

We have a new challenge over at Beary Scrap and you're going to love it....HAPPY FALL Y'ALL!  I adore the season of fall, it's my favorite.  To me it's like everything is getting ready to go to sleep for the winter.  The colors are so deep and rich and, love, love.  Can't you just smell the crisp air, the apples baking in the oven with a sprinkle of sugar and see the leaves starting to fall to the ground.  How could that not give you warm fuzzies all over. 

I used the new Authentique 6 x 6 paper pads (Glowing and Blissful) for this card.  I inked it up with a bit of distress ink to give a bit more aged look and to blend with the Fall colors I was reaching for.  That's the nice thing about distress ink...if your paper isn't quite what you want it to be in color or that thing up.

This card also qualifies for the following challenges:


Happy Day

Today is hump day of the week and I hope all of you have a HAPPY DAY!  I created this card with Scrapping Cottages Airplane with Banner Die and My Little Shoe Box Papers.  Having a little boy in the house you know I had to make two for my card and one for the card he made beside me during scrap time.  What precious times. 

Remember to have a Happy Day and I'll see you soon.
