Happy Fall Y'all

It doesn't quite feel like fall here. Today was 94 degrees here. But maybe if I start thinking fall, we'll get more fall-like temperatures. I don't mind putting the shorts away and the trees turning pretty colors. I am anxious to take the new camper out to enjoy some natural surroundings. Tom suggested that we live out of it for a day or two to make sure we have everything we need when we do get a weekend to camp. We just might do that some time soon. So my card tonight is for the fall.

I used Brat Pumpkin from Bugaboo Stamps for this card. I colored him with fall colors from Copic and Spectrum Noir markers and die cut him with MFT Stitched Ovals. The card base and the backing oval is kraft card stock. The designer paper is from Basic Grey Origins 6x6 paper pad. The sentiment was a freebie from Paper Craft World. I distressed the edges of the main card layer with Spiced Marmalade distress ink. I am entering these challenges:

Wishing you all a Happy Labor Day if you are in the U.S. I hope it's a relaxing holiday for you. I'll have the twins tomorrow so not really too relaxing but it will be fun. And maybe after they go home I'll get some time in my craft area. One can hope anyway. Have a super week!

Hi Donna, sorry I have been missing in action for the last few weeks but it is summer time and I have been off enjoying it. We had a big family reunion in the US and all our cousins reunited for a family get together. Great fun. Forest fires everywhere, lots of smoke but it is starting to clear. Hope your summer was great!

Love your card, the Bugaboo image and the happy fall sentiment. Wonderful work!

Love what you did with that sketch, Donna, and your coloring is magnificent! I'm ready for fall and cooler temps, too. More than half of our summer days have been over 100. Yuck! OK, putting on my DT hat now - I'm absolutely delighted that you are playing in our "Anything Goes" challenge at QKR Stampede this week. Good luck.
