Happy Fall Y ' all!!

Okay technically it's not fall YET, but it's officially September and that's all I need to know!!  I just looove the feel of that crisp fall air!!

Smiley from millan.net

So for today's card I was completely inspired by this rapidly approaching season, and I had just the perfect little cuppie to use!

How delish is this little guy???   He is from Taylored Expressions Season's Sweetings stamp set, which is an absolute MUST have for all your Holiday cards!! ..and yes, it is NEVER too soon - especially for me because I am as slow as molasses when it comes to "mass producing" so I just whipped out all my favorite Holiday sets and I'm ready to roll!!

Anyhoo back to this card, which I made for Taylor's Sketch Challenge #80.  This was such a fun sketch, and I finally had a chance to use my August Key Ingredients, which I have to say, are just to die for - just take a peek at the first card I made with mine:


I just looove these colors, and the ribbons included are just perfect!  Like my ruffle??? well I must confess I wanted to make that into one of those cool little ribbon "rosettes" that are all the rage lately, but after about my 10th attempt, and my "roses" looking like a tractor had run them over I decided a little ruffle would look better anyway!!

I stamped my image and sentiment (from THE best sentiment set ever!!!) using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and colored the cuppie with my Copics.  I cut out the cuppie and mounted him to my circle panel using dimensionals. 

I also stamped some leaves and part of the tree trunk from the Branching Out stamp set to go with my whole fall theme!! Finally, I sponged the edges of the image with my Vintage Photo Distress ink, and voila!  This cute little cuppie is bundled up and ready to go!

Hope you like this little guy as much as I do, and I hope your day is off to a great start!

Thanks for stopping by!
