As you all have probably realized, I'm dying for autumn to arrive. Halloween and pumpkins are definitely autumnal, right? Well, I have had so much fun watercoloring these sweet kiddos that I have many, many images lying around, ready to use in cards. Last night, while waiting for Brien to return from the rehearsal dinner he was attending, I got in the studio and decided to do something with them. The latest Paper Players challenge is a sketch challenge and I decided to play along, especially as I haven't been able to play along in quite a while.

Yes, I know, I didn't make a square card, nor did I use a circle (I don't have any large circle cutting devices...), but it remains fairly true to the sketch otherwise. ;o)

And, of course, the inside. I didn't have anything to stamp in here so I decided to use paper instead. :o)

This card uses:

Stamp Sets: "Greeting Card Kids", "Teeny Tiny Wishes"
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Sahara Sand, Black Staz-On
Paper: Watercolor paper, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, retired SU! Halloween DSP (I can't for the life of me remember the name--Sorry!)
Accessories: Dimensionals, scallop border punch, 1 1/4" Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain ribbon, mini pearls

I'm planning on making some similar cards to send to my nieces and nephews--I just can't get enough of these "Greeting Card Kids" and the watercoloring--it's such a stress relief for me. :o)

Oh my. Wait until I post the Halloween cards I just made. All I can say is great minds think alike. I PROMISE I made them BEFORE you posted this card.
