Standing Guard

Oh boy, was this a labor of love!! I love Fall and I adore scarecrows and this lil fella was a challenge for me to create! I used MC, the dad figure, cut many many times, at 3".Used my pinking shears to adapt his clothes.His face is an oval from good ole George, cut at 1 1/4".I am not good at drawing faces, but I think his is kinda cute! I used SYI for the pumpkins, cut at several different sizes as well as the sunflowers.The crow is my own handy work. lol Im sure you can tell !! He started out as a 1" circle, cut in half and a tiny lil triangle for his beak and I just added some small strips for tail feathers and his feet...I think hes cute ! His hat is the snail,from WIMG, that I adapted!!! I couldnt find a hat that I really liked so I got out a few carts and turned the pages upside down , sideways and, well you get my drift,to see if anything would work..and there ya go! Lots of inking, popping, used raffia for the straw and added a whole lotta love !!! Thanks so much for looking!!



Oh this is sooo cute Joy! Really makes me anxious for Fall. Bet I'll be seeing it published in the Chirp on Monday. You sure you aren't bribing them. LOL BTW I left a little something for you on my blog. xxD

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
