Autumn Hello

Good morning 🙂  Another Autumn card for you today.  I found this cute image from Ike’s Art, in my files.  It doesn’t seem to be available anymore (or I’m blind), but there are TONS of cute images in the store to choose from!!   I used this sketch, from The Sketchy Challenges, as my layout guideline:

After coloring this cute fall pooch with my Prismacolor pencils, I stamped 3 leaves with an Ink A Dink a Doo stamp, and colored and fussy cut them out.  I found the perfect papers in my stash, and lay everything out.  I added a sentiment, stamped on a fishtail banner die cut (cut with an unbranded die).  Snow is in the forecast today, so I’m thinking that these will be the only pretty leaves that I see for quite awhile 🙁

I’d like to enter this into the following challenges:

Pug Present

If this isn’t just the cutest little guy, ever!!! I wouldn’t mind getting him from Santa 🙂  This card was made for a swap over at the Kit and Clowder Facebook group, and when I searched to find something about my partner, the one thing that stuck out was that she LOVES her little pug 🙂  So I took it from there, and was lucky enough to find this adorable little guy, from Just Inklined.  I colored him up with my SN and Copic markers, then carefully added a holly pattern, with a small stamp, to the gift box.  I layered everything up with white CS and mirror card (which was, as always, a joy to photograph), that I’d die cut a window into.  The holly was cut with a Tim Holtz Sizzix die, and the sentiment was done with an unbranded die.  I added a red bow and some silver baubles to finish this card off.  I hope my swap partner likes it!!
