Happy Fall Y'all!

Hi my crafty friends!  Fall is in the air and the trees are starting to turn their beautiful colors.  Oh how I love fall!  Sunny, cool days are just perfect for getting outside.  Nice crisp evening are perfect for sleeping, but the one thing I don't like-shorter days! lol  I love when it stays light out until 9:30/10pm but of course as fall draws near we lose that.  I will survive and it will make the longer days all the sweeter when they come back around.



  Brenda here and this week at Sweet Sassy Diva our theme is fall!  I decided to design a card using my Gypsy and the basket from Doodlecharms.  I welded two of the together.  This is what it will look like once two are welded together:


I also layed out my layers to my basket on another layer in my Gypsy and I decided I would add a pumpkin to the mix and got it from the Freshly Picked cart.


After cutting out my basket layers I decided to run my basket layer through the Cuttlebug with an embossing fold like looks like wood from Stamping Up.  I cut my leaves out of scrap paper using My Creative Time dies and my sentiment is from her as well.  I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color the leaf in my circle sentiment.  I inked my leaves and basket with Tim Holtz distress inks-Walnut and Vintage Photo.  Here is my finished card, I am pretty pleased with the way it came out although I would have welded my pumpkin to my base if I had thought about it first. lol I hope that you will have go at a shaped card for the fall!  Happy crafting!
