Happy Tuesday!

Howdy everyone! Here I am again ~ I'm sorry it's been a while. Once again, life. Life got in the way. I was just saying to someone that isn't it weird that when you work you find time to get in your crafting or "me" time. But when you don't work, don't have that 9-5 you can barely find time to get everything done. Why is that? I sure would like to know.

So in the spirit of fall, I've made a couple of fall cards. The first one that I made was for the challenge over at SCS. It was the card sketch from last Wednesday - but at least I had finished it. The challenge was to make a card using this sketch:

And here is the card that I made:
The base card is Chocolate Chip. I layered it with Garden Green, So Saffron and some DP that I've had forever that I don't know who made it, sorry. It was in some paper pack that I got many years ago. The image is very old. It is from D.O.T.S. and it is called Bountiful Harvest. It's one of my favorites to do each year. This time I colored it with my watercolor crayons. I sponged it with Garden Green ink and layered it on to So Saffron and Garden Green. Following the sketch I layered it and the other layers on to the card. I added the length of ribbon for a small touch. I also pulled out my Friskars corner punch and punched the corner of the other layers. So, wadda think? Is is "fall-y"???

You wanna see another Fall card??? Here it is.....

This card is a mish mash of a few stamps. Since I am a lover of fall (really, could you tell?) I love apples and apple trees. These stamps get pulled out every year.

I first stamped the tree by Great Impressions. I then stamped the basket also by Great Impressions, twice. Once on the image panel and once on scratch paper for a mask. I then took out my SU! set Happy Fall Ya'll and used the mask to cover the basket and stamped the fence. I used my pencils and gamsol to color the images. Here and there I used my markers to just add a touch. I layered the image panel on to a piece of Really Rust. The base card is Chocolate Chip and a piece of DP, from who I don't remember. I attached the panel and made some photo corners and added a red jewel to bling it up.

I would also like to show you a card that my dear friend Betty sent to me. She got a few people together and asked us if we wanted to make cards to swap for World Card Making Day which is October 4th. Now if you want why don't you go and make a card and send it out to someone to make their day!
Fall is my favorite time of year ~ you know that, I've said it enough. But what else would you like to see? I might bore you with all the Fall and Halloween cards. Is there something else you'd like to see? If so just leave me a comment, I'd appreciate it!
Well I'm off to visit blog land and then to get a few cards made. What's on your agenda today?
Hugs,
Joani
