~~~ Happy Fall Y'all ~~~

Good morning, Y'all.......Happy Fall !!! The theme this week at My Craft Spot is Fall Leaves and this card has plenty of them !! The tree cut is from Cindy Loo. The scarecrow and pumpkins were made using QuicKuts dies and the leaves were made using punches. They could just as easily have been made using the Cricut. The paper for the leaves had large leaves all over it and I tried to punch the leaves so that they would look right, but it really didn't matter, because I inked each leaf with 3 different Ranger inks....yep, my fingers looked like one big leaf when I was done ! I hope y'all will join us this week for the challenge, I'm sure Kimberly has something yummy to give away!!  
Scarecrow and Pumpkins....QuicKuts Dies
Leaves.....2 Different Punches
Tree.....Cindy Loo
Inks by Ranger.... Tea Dye, Orange Marmalade and Fired Brick
I also painted some watered down Gold Pearl X on the leaves to give them a lil shimmer.
Thanks for taking a peek !!!
Entering this in the challenge this week at Raise The Bar...Fall Leaves is the theme!

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!!!
