Happy Fall

Happy Fall to Y'all!  I love the fall season.  The cool weather, the pretty trees, warm cider.  Ok, ok, I know I live in Florida now but I still remember the sights and smells.  To keep me thinking about the fall season I made a card today celebrating it.


   I think this is so cute!  I used a stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs.  It's called "What's Mew?" from the Sweet P Collection.


Every one of these sentiments work so well with the stamp and also alone or with other Sugar Pea sets.  I have several friends who have cats so I had that in mind when I chose the purrfect day phrase.  The cranberry card base is 5 x 5 1/2".  I wrapped some gold dotted paper with a wide burlap ribbon.  I'm loving that touch, by the way.  After stamping the image a few times on white and pattern paper I pieced parts of it to create a color scheme I wanted.  The girl, shutters, tree branch and windows are all individually cut and glued onto the original white stamped image.


It's so nice to use stamps for many different seasons and occasions.


I found a label die that I cut and turned upside down to mimic the half moon window on the stamp.  I few small stitched leaf die cuts finished off the card.  I'm entering this card in Sugar Pea Designs SPD09 Challenge.  There is another 10 days or so to enter your card.  I'm hoping to win a $15 gift certificate so that I can buy more Sugar Pea stamps!   Happy, happy fall.
