Autumn Girl

      It's the start of a new challenge at Creative Knockouts and we have a fun & fabulous sponsor, Twinkle Lane Designs, who provided images for the DT to use.  My card features one called Autumn Girl and the sentiment comes with her.  This is an "Anything Goes" theme this time.

     This card actually is for Thanksgiving, the perfect day to celebrate the gorgeous fall colors in the foliage and all of the falling leaves, so it's also getting posted for the "F" day at the 30 Days of Holidays at Beccy's Place.

      I colored with my ProMarkers, then cut the image with as CUTplorations stitched die.  The sentiment was cut with a QuicKutz die the edges were inked, and I added it to the image piece.  All the papers and even the dry embossed CS pieces are just scraps from the basket.  It's amazing what can be done with little snippets of this and that, so I never throw anything away.  If I don't go through the baskets f scraps regularly, my crafting 'room' becomes 'no room anywhere' and then it's impossible to craft.  lol

     The tiny single leaf was included in the image set so I printed it onto a scrap of paper, trimmed it to size, and added it on the left side.   I hand-sewed one of my signature bows, adding a pearl this time.


     Challenges:
     We really want to see you playing along in this challenge so get things lined up and come join us.  With an "Anything Goes" theme, you can't lose.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Your fall card is fabulous NanaConnie, the image is cute and you've coloured it beautifully. Great job selecting the papers from your scrap box, they coordinate nicely and work perfectly for the autumn theme. Love the little bow too.
Cheers,
Beccy

Lovely autumnal card using up tiny snippets!
There's a nice mug of hot chocolate brewing in the Snippets Playground Treehouse if you need a bit of a warm up!

Hugs, Sarn x

Such a lovely card and the autumnal colours are so warm and inviting just like thanksgiving should be. I too feel overwhelmed if I don’t use up my scraps and I can’t throw away even the smallest bit of paper or card. Hugs, Amanda x
