Falling for You

Today is the first day of fall, but it doesn't feel like it with a predicted high of 95 degrees here in North Carolina! Nevertheless, I've been preparing for fall activities and holidays with some fun projects like this card I created with a new Two Peas in a Bucket digital kit called 'Little Autumn Girl' by Holly Brooke Jones.


The kit contains six accents; four leaves, a piece of candy corn and this adorable little autumn girl. I used the leaf images to create my background patterned paper. I love using Kraft paper for fall projects as it really creates a rustic feel. The die cuts are from Nestabilities.


I used some wrinkled seam binding for my bow and topped it with an old Fancy Pants felt flower and a cream button. I created the sentiment and used my old Sizzix die cutter to make the little tag for it. What do you think of the gems? Nice touch or a little over the top? Sometimes it's hard to decide if a project needs a little extra something or if it's just right the way it is.

If you haven't had a chance this week to check out a second helping of the Digital Doodles 'Thankful' kit, scroll down to the next post. I will warn you, however, that the images might send you to the kitchen for something sweet! ;) Oh and while you are drooling over the yummy projects, don't forget to leave a comment to win the 'Card Sentiments' kit.

Have a great fall day! Thanks for dropping by! :) Kathy
