Choose the best . . .

I've had this stamped image for a while now, and since it fit the autumn theme, decided to color it up - sorry that I can't tell you the company for certain.   I've tucked a couple doilies and a silk leaf behind my image, then added flowers and leaves.   That's a strip of brown gingham ribbon along the bottom, then I also added candi-dots.  The background paper is a festive autumn theme, but it only peeks out in places.

Autumn splendor

Whimsy Stamps has some of the most adorable stamps/digitals, and this happens to be just one of them.  The bird and ladybug included in this image, gives it a sweeter touch, too.   I added an acorn to the center of my bow, then used other embellishments atop my bottom corner ribbon.   I tried not to over-embellish, so some of my pretty background paper showed up.   Enjoy the autumn splendor, while it lasts  . . .

Happy scarecrow

I thank my BFF, Gail, for sending me this Stampin' Up scarecrow stamp - he's too happy to be scary.  She also sent me the polka dot background paper, the sunflowers and the pumpkin, so I thought it fitting to create a card, using those materials.   I also added die cut foliage, as well as silk leaves to put the finishing touches to this and sent it off her way.  Happy Autumn!

Mistletoe and holly

This sweet image comes from Crafty Sentiments Designs, which I've colored with prismas.   I did put plaid ribbon along the bottom, but then almost entirely covered it with the poinsettias and die cut foliage.  The upper corners are also die cuts, with holly embellishments added.
Thanks for coming in to view my card.

Snowman giggles

This adorable snowman comes from Mo Manning, and I love the look of him laughing.  I've colored with prismas, and embossed snowflakes on the large circle beside him.  My chevron card background was already pre-printed, so this made for a really quick, simple card.

Hat off to you

This happy snowman comes from Lili of the Valley, which I've colored with prismas.   I've attached silver-edged ribbon along the bottom, then topped the edges with gems.  I had the snowflakes in my stash, and they were handy to have the hole in the center, so I could attach them with tiny brad centers.  It must be cold out, since even the snowman has a hat, scarf and mittens!

With all my heart

This sweetie comes from Saturated Canary and I really took the plunge by coloring her hair in pink instead of the traditional brunette or blonde.  My leaf foliage was done with a die cut, and I know you crafters out there can see what other materials were used/added to my card.
Thanks for coming in to view.
