SRU Happy Fall

The challenge we have for you over at Stamps R Us beginning today (and running for two weeks) is themed Fall!   Our sponsor is Robyn's Fetish.  Be sure and submit your creation and who knows...you could be a winner of a wonderful prize package from Robyn's Fetish - or one of our top three blogs!  Please help us give a great big welcome to our new Design Team member, Jo.




I struggled with this card so bad it wasn't even funny!  If I colored it once, I colored it twenty times - and am still not satisfied with it!  So, just disregard the coloring, look at the cute image, and let your imagination take over!!!   The image is one that Robyn's Fetish so graciously gave us to use and it's just as pretty as can be (until I started trying to color it! LOL)  Check out all the wonderful images in her store.
   

A tip for putting brads on your cards that I learned over at Jaydee's  blog......If you don't want to poke holes in your paper to run the brad through, simply cut off the prongs on the back (scissors work) and then use a glue dot to put your brad on the card.  ( Duh....why I didn't I think of that! )  This way you don't have the bulk of the prongs under the card stock!   Thanks Jaydee!

Thanks for stopping by.........and head on over to Stamps R Us Challenges and show us your fall cards.

Hey Lynn,

This card turned out SO BRILLIANT... sorry that you don't feel so. Please, you are being so ahrd on yourself. Iit is super-duper. The colouring is GREAT. The image is cute, cute, cute. And the fence and the bird in teh sky look so cute. The embossed background looks perfect. This embossing folder must be the best by far.

I have to agree with everyone who says you're too hard on yourself, Lynn. I love the way you made the fence look like old, weathered boards! Your bow is amazing -- what great ribbon. Such a warm, inviting card.
