Sunday 16 September 2012


It really feels like Autumn is here, it seems like we went to bed after a lovely Summer's day and woke up to Autumn.

This is my card for the new challenge over at The Crafty Pad, it was my turn to choose the theme this week and I have chosen:


Brown, Orange, Red, Yellow, Green - we would like to see at least two of these colours on your project but it would be nice to see more.

I have used the great Crafty Pad image Sammy Scarecrow and this is my card:

I have also used the Crafty Pad image Acorns and Autumn Leaves and my sentiment is one of the Crafty Pad Happy Birthday Sentiments.  I printed the Acorns and Autumn Leaves image three times, coloured them all with my ProMarkers and then cut them out and decoupaged them, I also sprayed them with some Spray and Shine from Crafter's Companion.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

Our fab Sponsor this week is:

Crafty Individuals

and the fab prize  is

1 Pack of Red Rubber Tree Stamps
1 6x6 Tree Themed Backing Papers
1 A4 sheet of Bird Toppers

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:

Hi Pauline yes there is a definite autumnal feel to the air now - sigh! Wouldn't be so bad if we had managed to have a proper summer. Your card is adorable, what a cute scarecrow! So beautifully finished as always x
