Happy Fall Fun!

We had a lovely stretch of cooler weather over the weekend, but it's been hot, Hot, HOT! the last few days and very, very humid too! Mother Nature is a tease. However, I know that fall is coming because we're beginning to get some apples with our CSA farm share! I hope we only get one pumpkin though because I detest pumpkins as a food group. IMHO they're only good for two things, taking children to pick a pumpkin and carving it into a Jack O'Lantern. I guess I could always put an extras out for our grey squirrels to eat! (We don't get red squirrels here, though we've had an occasional black one!).

Kraftin' Kimmie's  Pick of the Patch was stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Neenah cardstock and colored with Copic markers, which I'll list below. The colors were chosen to match the patterned papers from my hoarded Mellow 6x6 pad by Basic Grey.

The sentiment was created using equally hoarded Doodlebug Rub-Ons, which I love because they're small and in a fun font. Sadly, they're almost gone. Boo-hoo. The leaves were punched from the more solid papers from the pad, then tinted with Copic markers.

I based my card on this great sketch from the folks at Sketch N Stash.
