Fall Friends


Hello, Happy Tuesday! It is a beautiful Fall day here. I would've loved to have played hooky today from school but I didn't. Next week we get a 4 day weekend from school, I guess I can wait until then. I hope the weather is still this nice!

Today there is another fabulous challenge starting at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. This week the challenge is Cut It Out and we don't mean with a punch or die cut. We would like to see your best fussy cutting. I am not one to ever hand cut things out usually. So funny that I seem to cut this cutie out so many times I just couldn't stop, hehe. I even hand cut the squares around the image with my Exacto knive after I blew off all the dust and cobwebs!  On the top layer for the face, bandana, heart and the duck I used a roller ball tool to make it puffed out even more. I think I even used a whole pack of Pop Dots on this card!!! I can't wait to see how you cut it out so come on over and play with us.

Mary, I'm stunned - and envious, of your fussy cutting skills and to repeat for so many layers is outstanding. Mind you, being left handed I blame scissors for my lack of skill :-) You have created such a lovely cheerful card here - both in your happy pumkin that looks so dimensional (thanks to your use of your ball tool and layers) and in the great backing papers and embellishments. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)

Stunning autumn card!!! Thanks for joining us at Twisted Tuesday!!

Lin said...

What a gorgeous card. Love the vibrant colour scheme and your fabulous scarecrow is just gorgeous.

I love how you blew the dust off your exacto knife! I went through my craft supplies a week or so back and I found knives all over the place. You would have thought I was the surgeon general I had so many of them. I think I might have been blaming the tools for the fact I just can't cut with a knife and kept buying just one more to see if it would improve things!

Thanks for sharing with us and making me smile
