Scrapbox Challenge #2

Wow, I can't believe October is more than halfway over. This year has gone by so fast!
And since we are in the middle of fall, I decided to make

Fall/ Autumn

the theme for Scrapbox challenge #2. Anything fall goes, colored leaves, pumpkins, apples, farmers, thanksgiving, etc.

If you're new to the scrapbox challenge: It is for fun only to get me(and maybe you) to use up our scraps. If you'd like me to come see what you made just leave your name and card link with mr. linky.

I really wanted to use this cute image of Willie from the Maya, the bee show. I found it at a online coloring book site.



I had the designer paper forever! I can't even remember buying it or using it, but I must have at some point because I only had less than a half a sheet of it in my scrap box.
The image was colored using copics. The sentiment is a $ stamp from Michaels that I bought a couple of years ago. I stamped it on white and punched it out with my scallop circle punch. And the little pumpkin in the left top corner is a stamp from an old stampin up set. I'm so happy I have found use for this patterend paper, and I think the friend I am going to send this card to will love it.

Thanks so much for visiting me today, hope I inspired you to get out your designer paper scraps before you cut into another new piece of designer paper! And don't forget to come back and link your "scrap-card" so I can come see it!
