Happy Fall

I could feel the cool crispness in the air this morning and it felt soooo good. I love this time of the year when you don't have to wear heavy coats and just a sweater or sweatshirt will do. It is also a time of the year when there are many family and friend gatherings within a short time. Not to forget the starting of the baking season and soups and stews. Now that my Greeting Farm Gardener position is done I have been working on a posting schedule to help keep me organized and using my stamps. I have sooo many stamps that have not seen ink and I do want to change that. Some of those uninked stamps have been my Hannas. Expect to see at least one Hanna a week. For this card I used Fall Time from Hanna Stamps and Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #41(MTSC41). This is also for the Hanna weekly challenge HSC88 being hosted by Frances aka StampOwl. This week's challenge is to make a card/project using fall colors. Then on Copic Creations #13 the challenge is to use pumpkins. Three challenges in one! Woohoo!So I went to some very neglected Stampin Up designer papers and knew this Hanna would be perfect with them. I colored her up with copics and sponged the edges of the dp with vintage photo distress ink. I punched a leaf border with a Martha Stewart edge punch and added a button and a ribbon. Thanks for visiting today.

This made me want to head out to the pumpkin farm and start picking out big one. You also made me very hungry with your stew talk. Beautiful coloring and I love that punch along the side.
