BC126 - A Blustery Day



Hey it's Friday and you all know what that means. Yep, It's Blogger Challenge Day.
Our theme this week: Happy Fall Y'All - Cards relating to Autumn/Fall.
This is one of my favorite seasons so I loved this challenge.

Before I forget don't forget to check out my post on the newest Annabelle sketch below this post. We'd love to have a few more people join in with us on the sketch challenge.

I chose to use an image from: www.ladybugandfriends.com by Joan Elliott but apparently it is not available right now as I could not locate it on their website.

The image was colored with Prisma Colored Pencils and cut out with a Nestabilitie Die. I computer generated the sentiment.

Card stock: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and DP by KI Memories.
Ink: Prisma Color Pencils, Gamsol, Palette Noir Black ink.
Other: Swirls Cuttlebug Embossing folder, Small Maple Leaf Punch, Leaves (source unknown)

Don't forget to visit the other BC Members blogs to see their Fall creations.

I've also included a picture that I took of Coleen a few weeks ago. There was this gorgeous fall tree that we passed every day on the way to her pre-school so one afternoon I took her and got some photo's of her sitting in the yard with all these beautiful fall leaves around her.

DID YOU KNOW...that I have another blog? Yes, it's called (Wishes, Dreams and Other Things) - I haven't posted on it in awhile but there is a new post there with another picture of Coleen if you'd like to check it out. From time to time I will also feature some cards so it won't strictly be NSR. - I should also mention that this blog has Music on it so you might want to turn your speakers down if you don't want to listen to the music.
