The blessing of friends

As I made this card this afternoon, I was wearing a sweater and socks -haven't done that for a few months- because it was cool enough that I actually needed them! :)  That made me feel very fall-ish, so it was fun to make this fall-ish card.  One of my daughters just said, "Now that we're back in school, I'm ready for it to be cold again.  I want to wear my sweaters and boots."  My sentiments exactly!! :)  Sadly, it is supposed to be hot the rest of the week. :/

Here's the card...

My image is FTHS Pumpkin Patch Girl.  I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers.  She is cut out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A.  The edges are inked with SU "Crushed Curry." The DP is Crate Paper "Farmhouse."  The main panel is embossed with Darice "Fall Leaf" EF.  A "Buttons Galore and More" button is tied on with natural hemp. 

Cute Card Thursday #390 - numbers (my numbers are on the ruler DP)
Word Art Wednesday #200 - anything goes/family friendly (2nd entry)
FTHS Digital Stamp of the Month Challenge September - must use Pumpkin Patch Girl
 i {heart} card sketches #118 - sketch and/or twist (I used sketch)
 Spectrum Noir September challenge - Embossing + must use Spectrum Noir (dry embossing with Darice Fall Leaf EF)
*I don't usually keep track of which markers I use, so I was really surprised at how many I actually use!!  Spectrum Noir colors used: OR1, CT1, CT3, CT4, GB5, GB6, GB7, GB8, GB10, EB1, FS2, FS3, FS6, DG2, DG4, GT2, GT3, BG2, BG6, BG8

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

This is really cute, Debbie. I have my image colored but can't find it! It has to be in my craft room somewhere! but it might be easier to color another one rather than try to find it by cleaning off my desk LOL. Love the wood ruler behind the image on your card and the beautiful BG paper.

This is awesome...Love the DP you used and that cute image and lay-out too. So glad you joined our 200th Challenge at Word Art Wednesday last week. We have a new Challenge today and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Colossians 2:6-8 which says, "So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ." Have a blessed day!

Debbie - this is gorgeous. You've chosen paper that highlights the Hello Pumpkin image perfectly! I also love the special touches on the sketch such as the bowed sentiment and the embossing in the background. Really special card. Thanks for joining us in the Sketch of the Week at From The Heart Stamps. Take care.
