Wow, I cannot believe it's September already! Is is just me or does it seem like this year is just flying by? For our challenge this month over at the Send A Smile 4 Kids blog we are creating cute fall/Halloween cards for kids. I have two precious granddaughters that I love to send Halloween cards to. This adorable creation will be going to one of those little dolls. To create my card I started by layering some gorgeous fall plaid patterned paper from the Paper Rose Autumn Plaid 6x6 paper pad onto an A2 crumb cake cardstock card base. I then die cut a stitched edge panel using Paper Rose's stitched rectangle dies and some white cardstock. Using a My Favorite Things cloud stencil and Tim Holtz distress ink in faded jeans I created a fall sky background on the focal panel. Using dies and stamps from My Favorite Things Harvest Mouse I created my mice, pumpkins, and leaves and colored them using my Copic markers. I adhered them directly onto the panel using some precious glue from Jackie's Craft Table. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set directly onto the panel using my mini Misti and Versafine onyx black ink for a nice crisp look over the distress ink. To finish off my card I popped the focal panel up off of the card using 3M foam tape and added some fun highlights on the images using my Gelly Roll white gel pen. I can't wait to see how everyone else was inspired by this challenge. Thank you for stopping by my blog today!
Hi Celeste, This is absolutely adorable! Your coloring is amazing and that dp is a perfect complement to your characters. Great job on that cloud stenciling, too. Take good care.
Celeste this is a favourite stamp set. So cute and perfect for your granddaughters!
Cuter than cute! I adore the combination of darling fall time critters set against a richly hued and entirely elegant plaid background paper. That combo is a homerun if there was and just looks soooo pretty together.

The plaid paper is such a cute background for these sweet mice and their fall bounty!
These are my favorite guys!
One of those little dolls of yours is going to enjoy this darling card! I love this set to bits. I need to see if it's still available!
