OK, I'm done with summer! I officially hate hot weather, I'm tired of day after day of temperatures over 100F, I'm tired of heat waves, and I don't want to hear the meteorologists tell us one more time to stay indoors because of bad air quality! That part is really sad because outside is my favorite place to be if I'm not in the craft room. I want it to be autumn and I want crisp, cool nights, not Hot August Nights.
I'm not doing any more summer cards - only fall and winter. Maybe that will bring in cooler temperatures. :-D The image on this autumn card is from Bugaboo Stamps and I love this autumn deer.
I started with the sketch at Stella Says Sketch.
I colored with ProMarkers, then used one of my Stitched Border dies from Lawn Fawn along each side of it. I trimmed it top and bottom with a paper cutter and distressed the edges. Both papers came from one of my DCWV autumn stacks which have been in my stash for more than 5 years now. I use them up slowly but surely and, while they last, I don't have to buy any new fall paper stacks.
I found the orange, polka dot ribbon in my stash, wrapped it around and then hand tied the bow. I printed the sentiments, cut it by hand, matted it, hand cut it again, then added it to the top corner.

Well, I went outside to check but fall hasn't arrived yet. Back to the craft room to make more winter cards. Maybe visions of snow will help. :-D Happy Crafting. NanaConnie
