The Splendor of Autumn

So, are you ready for fall?  I love the cooler weather, Halloween, pumpkins, scarecrows, falling leaves, apple cider, and all the other fabulous things that go along with fall weather.  I've got a cute little scarecrow and pumpkin to share with you today.


This cute image is Autumn Friends by StampArt Design and it's available over in the Whimsy shop.  I colored this fall image with copics and colored pencils and used some Glossy Accents on the scarecrow's nose, jack-o-lantern face, and the duck's beak and feet.  My sentiment is from Autumn Sentiments by Whimsy's Raindrop Echo Designs.  Be sure to stop by the shop and check out all their fabulous digital and rubber stamps, dies, and other paper crafting embellishments.


Thank you for stopping by.

Hi Anita, such a cutie! Great paper and I love that bow!! It's gorgeous. I like Autumn, apart from that we have loads of fruit and veg that need pickling before they go off - I like making chutney and pickles, but do get a bit fed at the end of it!! Sarah

Oh gosh this is soooo cute!! Love your coloring, it's always fantastic! Might have to buy that sweet scarecrow, one of my fav things for fall! My grandparents used to sell apple cider slush, it was really good, sure miss it!
