Harvest time .....

.... Good Saturday morning to you all!!!  It's been a super week here in Northville - one day that felt like Autumn had arrived in force, followed by several days of blue skies and sunshine.  The weathermen have promised us a cooler weekend, but with mostly sunny days.  The colours of Fall are all around, especially true in Blogland!!  Today's card has been made using two challenges:



Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Off Beat Backgrounds, Pic-Nic Patterns, Candy Jar Christmas Fillers; PTI - Friendship Jar, Friendship Jar Fall Fillers
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede; Memento - Morocco (substituted for Dusty Durango), Rich Cocoa
Spellbinders:  Swatch Squares (S4-342) #4, Squares Lg (S4-126) #5
Accessories:  SU Card - Soft Suede; Promarkers - Oatmeal, Burnt Orange, Orange, Amber, Pumpkin, Olive Green, Shale; SU Ribbon; WMS - Twine; Card from stash


I really like the photo from Colour Q and decided to try and create my own plaid using this colours.  Claire has made plaid stamping so easy with her stamps.  I inked the wide stamp (Pic-Nic Patterns) with Morocco and the thinner stamps with Soft Suede and Rich Razzleberry.  I'm really pleased how it turned out.  I've been quite faithfully to the square sketch, using Soft Suede card to make the square swatch and panel, and ribbon to the side.  To make my jar of Fall goodies, I used the PTI Fall Fillers and coloured them with Promarkers.  For the jar I used WMS Candy jar - this stamp is a bit smaller than the PTI jar and fit better with the design - I like the jar top too!  I finished off with a bunch of tags - all stamped with different sentiments and tied with some twine.

We've been here nearly six months already, and we still have a few boxes in the garage that haven't been unpacked.  So that's our plan for today - finish the unpacking and get rid of the empty boxes!!!  And I can't believe just how fast that time has gone!

Before I go, I've got to say Hello and Welcome to a couple of new followers - Rejane and Vickie - so pleased you joined me.  Bye for now!
