Fall is in the air...

Wow, what a great challenge this week over at Our Creative Corner. The challenge has a fall harvest theme, and is an art inspired challenge as well. Here are the inspiration pieces:





Aren't they beautiful? Please go check out the OCC blog, and read about these photo's, and perhaps play along! Their DT has posted some fabulous cards for you to see, as always! I know you won't be disappointed!


I didn't have any stamps that I could think of that depicted picking wildflowers...


However, I had a cute set by TAC that had a man picking veggies, and a cute wagon by Rupa, from Gina K. Designs that was full of apples.





So... I put some stems on the mans veggies, and made them apples!!! It's amazing what you can do with a sharp colored pencil and some stipple brushes!!! On glossy paper, I did some brayering and some masking for the background with the Kaliedacolor Autumn Ink Pad. I brought out the Heather Flower Soft for the field. The images are cut out and popped up with dots. I omitted a sentiment, as I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the card.


Hope you like it!
Here is today's card for 365 Cards...we were to use stars on our cards! And since this week is also glitter week, I blinged these babies up!!! Lol! Thank heaven for glittered cardstock, as it was 10:30 p.m., and I realized I had not even thought about this challenge yet!!! Cheesy but finished....relief!

By the way - here is TODAY'S view from the doorway at 6:30 this a.m.... God is good!!!

How cute this turned out and the coloring is GREAT!! The wheelbarrow is just the touch you needed. Great work. And what a beautiful view from your back yard - or is that the front yard view - either way just beautiful.
