Happy Fall!

Sorry for my delay in today's post. It's been a little crazy in the Kowalik house today. A ton of running around to do. I don't know why it seems like everything gets crammed into 1 day. On with my card for today! As you may know the challenge this week was a fall/harvest card. Here is what I came up with :

To make this card I stamped my image on plain white card stock with black in and colored it in using my Prismacolor pencils blended with Gamsol. Then I used the scallop Nesties to cut out the image and layered it with a copper card stock then again with brown. Next I stamped my sentiment "May the blessing of the the season fill your heart and your home" on the gold card stock and layered that on brown. Next I stamped 3 leaves on different colors of card stock and cut each one out. Then I cut a piece of leaf pattern paper 5.25" x 5.25". I then glued the pattern paper to the center of my 5.5" x 5.5" card base. Next I glued my layered image to the upper left of the card, and the sentiment to the lower left. Finally I added my leaves to the right side.

Supplies : stamp - House Mouse, paper - DCWV, card stock - Bazzill, Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol, Nesties, Marvy Uchida corner rounder.

Here is a close up of my image. I think he turned out so cute!

I again want to apologize for my delay. I hate when things get overly hectic. I do want to share with everyone that my DH surprised me with an iPod touch yesterday! I was so excited. I played with it all night. I knew I was getting one, but I didn't think until Christmas.

Stay tuned I plan on having another post this evening since I got a blog award!

Happy Crafting,
