Last of Fall

Good morning!  How's this beautiful day treatin' ya?  I hope very well, and that you're enjoying a wonderful Sunday doing something that you love.  For me, besides family, what I love is of course cards, stamping, coloring, and anything paper crafty, so today I bring you my final card of Fall 2010.  My favorite time of year, and it will soon be gone, but with the change of seasons, brings new inspiration for all things crafty, so after this project, I'm ready to get on with all the crafty goodness of winter!!  Christmas, snowmen in January, and Valentine's Day, here I come!!!  ;)
 This card was made with some of the new Cottage Impressions rubber stamps, and the Mini Pumpkin die from The Scrapping Cottage.  I stamped the crows on Neenah solar white card stock, and colored them with my Copic markers.  The pumpkins were cut with colored card stock this times but I did use my Copics to shade them.  Highlights and dots were done with my white Gelly Roll pen.  The leaves were punched from scrap card stock with a Martha Stewart oak leaf punch.  I chose some designer paper from Stampin' Up!, and used chocolate colored pearls, and grosgrain ribbon for embellishments.  I finished this off with some faux stitching, and doodling around the edges of the panels. 

I hope you like it, and that you've found plenty of Fall inspiration here this season.  Please stay tuned, because I plan to have lots of crafty fun with Winter, too.  Tuesday is challenge day over at Peachy Keen Stamps, and I'm hoping to have a Copic video to share.  Thanks for stopping by today, and have a blessed day!!  Happy Stamping!
Love ya,

Sniff, sniff, we just got our first real snow. I was loving the fall colors so much this year. They lasted longer than normal, but I am at least happy that they lasted so long. Your card is GORGEOUS! And I can't get over those leaves hanging down. Another work of art! TFS.

Oh Lorie, this is just splendid! I love what you've done with these beautiful fall crows - they are so sweet and happy looking and beautifully colored - such detail and richness in your card! I love this time of year, too, but Christmas being my very favorite, well, I can hardly wait to see what you create in the upcoming month! Blessings to you as you await the arrival of sweet baby Max!

This a-mazing card looks like an awning and the crows are selling pumpkins under it! It's genius! (Of course, your colouring is a magnet to me too)! Love'n hugs Viv xxx
