Happy Fall

Wow time flies. I just looked at my blog and realized I have not posted in almost a week. I have been spending some of the time finishing my XMAS cards. I always get a burst of energy when I start then it fades and they sit there until I work up the modivation to finish them. The sad thing is I really don't have many to make (~25) but they tend to have alot of steps. I will post in a few weeks after I mail them.

I don't know if I like this card. I made this for Mary Jo's sketch challenge #96and PaperPlay challenge #41. Mary Jo's Sketch was a big tag. I thought, no big deal, wrong! The Paper Play Challenge was 2 pieces of DP, Ribbon and 3 buttons. I am not normally a button person but I thought that it would be easy to work them into this sketch, again wrong! It started out great but when all is said and done I don't know if I like it. I like the colors, image, sentiment but I don't seem to love it all put together. I had a tough time finding buttons to match and then remembered I had some leaf buttons which made me happy. I popped up the tag and the oval to try to give the card some dimension. Isn't it funny how some sketches just look so easy and they tend to give you the most headaches.

Well hopefully I will have more time to create and post over the next week. Thanks for stopping by. Let me know if you like my card. I try to tell myself that everyone has different tastes and just because I don't love it doesn't mean other people won't.

This card came out great Peggy! Your corn looks so real and the fall leaves really jump right at you. The leaf buttons are a great finish to the card. Great job once again Peggy!
