Happy Fall…almost!

Happy Scarecrow

Happy Scarecrow

It’s been a rough couple of days…our internet service provider has been DOWN at my office AND, more importantly, at our HOME!! It has been pure torture!

Finally, we’re back up, yay! Ohh, at the office too. 😉

Thought I would post this card I made recently. I’ve been trying to use brighter Copic colors. I’m pretty happy with this one; It was a lot of fun to put together. The patches and pocket tops are paper-pieced ~ the scarecrow was stamped twice, cut out and attached with dimensionals. As I’ve mentioned, I’m not much of a sewer (unlike my sister who is the “Quilt Queen of Florida”!), so the faux stiching is done with a cuttlebug folder and highlighted with a brown Copic.

Hope you like it….and thank you for stopping by! 🙂

Life is good again ~ it is amazing how we take the internet for granted….never again for me!! I adore Charter Communications! lol

Recipe: Scarecrow stamp is by Whipper Snapper Designs, stamped in Momento tuxedo black, colored with Copics; Sentiment is from Northwoods, stamped in Distress ink vintage photo and Colorbox orange; DP is by BasicGrey called Recess, distressed with Metallic Rub-Ons in rosewood; Both stamped pieces were distressed with Metallic Rub-Ons in walnut; Robin’s Nest pebbles, ribbon and raffia were added

    Gotta love those Copics

  4. Oh my, that scarecrow is adorable. And the card is fabulous! I love how you did the faux stitching on the cardstock edges, and highlighting it with the marker makes it even more WOW! Very cool technique, I’ll have to remember. Love the gingham ribbon, too! Excellent fall card, Mary!
