An Autumn Thank-You Card


 Good morning! Our family went to a friend's house to carve pumpkins yesterday. They were really great hosts, and I made them a fall thank you card. The image is from Sweet 'n' Sassy, and the sketch is from The Sweet Stop.


I put two layers of glue dots on the back of my cut-out flower, which makes it pop up a little, but not as much as the pop dots with the foam core in them.Sometimes those foamy ones pop out too much for me.


I colored my plain white pearls with my Copics, with some of the same color that I used on the sunflowers. I think it was Y21 and Y17.


I really like the Sweet 'n' Sassy digi images. They are easy and fun to color, and have bold outlines, which I really like.


I hope you're getting some time to craft today, or even to play or work outside! We've just been pulling weeds in the flowerbeds and trying to get them all ready for winter. Have to go buy and spread some mulch this afternoon!
