Thinking of You

Hello everyone!!!


Welcome to October!!! Now I think we will see a shift to the fall season and temps. I can't wait to see the leaves change and all the beautiful colors on the trees.


I took a break from making Christmas cards and made a fall card for an inspiration project for the start of the October Craft-Dee BowZ challenge. 




Craft-Dee BowZ hosts a month-long challenge 
and the theme is always "Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow"

The sponsor this month is 



The prize will be 4 digital images 
awarded to the winner

Let me share my card with you.


This image is perfect for the fall season. Leaves piled high in a wheelbarrow, a rake, and stacked pumpkins. I added a fence behind the image but, it's really hidden pretty much. 
I also added some leaves to the card, just to jazz it up. 

The bow - I made a triple loop stacked bow. 
I found some plaid ribbon and used that to make my single loop bow for the bottom.  Then I used sheer ribbon and made two additional single loop bows and stacked them on top of each other and on top of the plaid bow.

Here is a closer view of the bow.

Three single loop bows stacked on top of each other. 

My digital image is called
Pumpkins and Leaves
and available here

Since there was so little room on the front for a sentiment,
 I added the sentiment to the inside


Make sure to visit Bugaboo for a great selection of digital images. 
I am sure you will find an image that you will just love and be perfect for your project.

SUPPLIES I USED ON MY PROJECT
Stamps:  Digital - Bugaboo Pumpkins & Leaves, Rubber Stamps (sentiment) Great Impressions

Ink: Brown Ink
Dies Used:  Spellbinders Ovals, Leaves

I hope you have enjoyed my card and
