Pumpkin Patch

Just yesterday, my husband was telling me that fall is in the air. Seriously? I looked at him like he had lost his marbles. LOL! I said, "You've got to be kidding?" It was 90 degrees outside just a few hours before he made that comment!

Fast forward 24 hours. Today we got a freebie paper that tells about the upcoming events in all the little towns around where we live. I love it! That's just one of the fun things about moving to a new town... getting to check out all sorts of new happenings. Things like fall festivals, craft shows, threshing/farming events, chowders and chil cookoffs, parades, and even pumpkin patch and apple orchard events.

hmmmmmmmmm... maybe my husband was right! Maybe, just maybe, fall is in the air.

Sooooooooooooo... I bought this cute scarecrow image from Digital Delights and created a fall card.

I love digital images. They are resonably priced, accessible, and can be resized to fit my needs!

I created this card for this week's Craft Us Crazy Challenge

Craft Us Crazy's theme is:

Autumn Colors and/or Favorite Embellishment

September 1 -14

By the way, I used both autumn colors (gold, orange, rich green, burgandy, brown) and my favorite embellishments (ribbon and brads).

The Craft Us Crazy sponsor for this week is Digital Delights

Oh, you're going to love their images. The cute little scarecrow (called Haystacks the Scarecrow) I used is just one of many!

Here's another picture, showing you the depth of my image.

Here are a couple of closeup pictures so you can see how very cute he is.

Yes, Fall is in the air - at Craft Us Crazy, where everyone is using Autumn Colors and/or their Favorite Embellishments!

Jeanetty, your little scarecrow card is totally adorable. What a precious image, and the colors are PERFECT!

You are right - that is a cute image! I am a little bit freaked out by the Fall aspect, but your card is simply adorable. Love that flower brad on the hat!

Jeanette, this is so well done! The image is sweet & expertly colored. The colors and layout are yummy, I love earth tones and fall colors. It's especially cute how he's sitting on the edge of the two papers and ribbon!
