Just Can't get Enough... Fall that is!!!

I love fall, and these low 70s, high 60s days are just the best!!!
This card I uses a sketch from i.c. Sketches.  A couple weeks ago I was their winner and won a box of amazing card kit selections.  What a fun surprise that was.
The stamp for this card is from Great Impressions.  I embellished it with the stitch doodles.  I also penned the other stitches.  The Happy Harvest stamp is SU!
This card was for Sketch and Stash.
The "old stash" are the button embellishments.  I used those when I made lots of polymer clay stuff.  I decided to try them on cards today and ended up needing to go and buy more!!!
The "new stash is my new Quickutz pumpkin die.  Isn't he cute?
The flowers are prima, with the skulls on them.  They were black and white and I colored them in with my orange Sharpie marker.  (I don't have an orange Copic yet, guess I better get some!!!)
This card is for Die Cuts R Us.
The theme is use the negative space.
I cute the pear out of yellow with my Quickutz 3 times.
I used one of the shaped to put the 4th pear on the card.
I was in Die Cuts top 3 last week, I was so happy about it too!  What a fun group over there!!!

  5. Hi Kristin,

    thanks for your sweet comment. When I hear your story I cinsider myself lucky. Only have headaches 3 to 4 times a week, and when I take my medicine on time it's bearable. Most people would say they have a bad headache, but for me it's lust a little headache. But there are worse things in life and when you have this your entire life you get used to it.

    I love your card. Great colours, beautifull papers and cute image.

    Enjoy your day,
    xoxo Karin

  6. Love the cards - I can't pick a favorite - although the colorful touches on the Halloween one make me go ooh and ahh. I haven't gotten into Copic markers yet either, but I have a feeling we all succumb eventually! However, you did great with the flower and a Sharpie. But then again, I love the first card, if that is indicative of the kits you got then you scored well! Then again, I think the pear card is elegant and classic. See, I can't choose but enjoy them all!

    This cooler weather is awesome, I'm loving it too!
