Almost That Time


Yep, it's almost time for pumpkins and such. I know everyone is probably ready for a little cooler weather too!

This cute, cute, image is from Designed2Delight and this is for the progressive challenge. Go check it out! Such fun! The layout is for The Paper Players challenge. The actual layout showed a circle but I substituted a rectangle for that. It's a very basic type layout that you can do so much with and I do love this type of layout! Check this challenge out too! The pumpkins were colored with Copics and SU markers. I'm still practicing on that one. In other words, don't look real close at this and see the awful coloring! I really wanted to try the crayons like Kathy did on her blog (LuckyStamper) but just haven't gotten enough crayons yet. Makes me feel like a kid again buying crayons and I LOVE that feeling!!!

Thanks for stopping by...............

I love this card, the coloring of the pumpkins, the paper, buttons, just everything. I really love fall, but I really don't like winter, especially if it snows again. This is a beautiful card a real keeper. Oh and I am the one who picks up after Lucky, well everyone in the house. It is crazy how many toys they collect, ok, I spoil him, but he loves his stuffies.

I love your card Lynn. Absolutely nothing wrong with your colouring skills. I also used my pencil crayons the other day, but it sure didn't look as good as this. I think the Copics have spoilt me...lol Well done. We're heading for Spring. I am not looking forward to Summer, think it's going to be a hot one... oh brother!

I love fall and everything that goes with it. I'm starting on fall cards too and your card is such an inspiration for me to break out my pumpkin stamps. Love this card Lynn.

Oh, Lynn, I love the cooler temps this card evokes. :o) I'm LONGING for autumn. This card has "FALL" written all over it. It's wonderful! :o)

Pretty card Lynn! Love the papers and layout you chose!
Thanks so much for joining us at Delightful Inspirations again this week! :)

I think the coloring looks terrific. The shading adds a lot to the image. I'm so bad at it that I never attempt shading. That's why all my colored images are solids. The plaid paper is perfect with the fall theme.

What is that embossing folder? It's a really cool design.
