Autumn Leaves

Good morning I hope you all had a good weekend and are lovely and refreshed for the week ahead!

I have a card I made today using one of Wendy's adorable images from Digital Delights called Prairie Kids Set.

Its a really cute set you get the boy as well as a girl, squirrel and the acorn.  I decided he would look good sat on the acorn so I enlarged the acorn big enough so he could sit on it.  He is coloured with Copics.  I cut a window in the card with SB Wonky Rectangles and added some Coredinations cardstock behind which had been through a wood grain embossing folder.  The papers are First Edition Boho Chic and I used a SB die Little Leaf Sets for the leaves.  Some card candi to finish.  Here is a side view:

Challenges I would like to enter:

Paper Makeup Stamps - Playing with Leaves
Get Inky - Fall Colours
Allsorts - Autumn Colours
Colour Me Creative - Fall colours
Sweet Stampin' - Autumn is here

We had a lovely day yesterday for Dave's birthday with his daughter, son in law and grandchildren.  I bought him an I Pad mini which I think he likes.  He is not very techno minded so I am trying to drag him into the 21st century lol!

 Thank you so much for looking and any comments you may leave, it is always lovely to read them and know you have been! Take care xx

Good morning Susan, I love this cute and beautiful card.
Great colours and the face on that wee chap is so darned cute. Love the fact he is on the Acorn rather than the usual Pumpkin!!
Have a great day

Lovely autumnal colours in this one Susan. That image is super cute sat on his acorn. It sounds as though you had a lovely family day yesterday. I bet Dave will soon become so hooked on his i-pad that you'll have difficulty prising him away from it.
