A clean and simle fall card --- DTC24

Hello all and happy Tuesday.

I made this card for this week's digital tuesday challenge. Martha is our hostess and she wants to see a

clean and simple fall card.

I don't know about your area, but here in Illinois it surely is looking more and more like fall, even though it hasn't officially started. Leaves are starting to change colors and fall off and the squirrels are throwing down tons of acorns from my tree in the backyard. My son is constantly complaining about them because he still loves to be barefoot in the backyard (it is still very warm in the daytime) and hates to step on them! I keep telling him to put on his shoes but he is not listening! Kids!!

I thought this little Susie Squirrel image from the Digital Stamp Oasis would be perfect for this theme. I used copics to color. Papers are all Stampin Up, the designer paper too, even though it is long retired. The full recipe can be read below. Oh, and if you like digital stamp oasis images, I have a super sale going on for a limited time only - all 20 images for US$10.00. You can check out the sale here.

I hope you get a chance to play the digital tuesday challenge this week for a chance to win some images from KLM Designs.

It's definitely feeling like fall here and your card is perfect! Beautiful image combined with the layout!

We have an acorn forest going on in our yard as well. I actually took some pics of it the other day that I haven't posted but our driveway was covered in them.
