Fall Blog Hop




Paper Wings is having a Fall Blog Hop - fun places to get lots of new fall ideas from Thanksgiving, Halloween, fall leaves. Fall Harvest uses my favorite little girl - I paper pieced her outfit and sunflower, colored her skin and hair with Copics - love the Copics - and used some fall jewels to add just a little extra touch. I scored orange CS on the diagonal - cut them apart and left a small space between them (thanks Seleise for this idea) My next card uses Sunday Afternoon - I just love the little guy with the basket of fresh apples, the saying is from Seasonal Snow Globes. I used nestabilities to cut out my ovals and label, colored with Copics, IRL the shading really shows. I paper pierced all 4 corners just for a little added zing.My last card is a very simple card using Sept. SOTM Potted Plants, double embossed with gold for the tree and silver for the pot, nestabilities oval and scallop oval as well as the label tag. The saying is from Bookoo blessings. The Willoughby DP just gives a fall fell to the card. Hop on down to see what everyone else has to show you for this Fall Blog Hop.

Those are apples? That's too funny - I had no idea what they were supposed to be, so I made mine eggs! Apples are way better! Next time!
The cards are all great, but the potted plant is my fave - I kept debating on whether or not to order it and now I really wish I had!

Wowzers! These are just fabulous! I saw the little girl IRL, but don't think you had the others when I was there last. Beautiful work dear friend - love them all!
