Well I heard that Digital Tuesday is in need of a couple of designers. I figured since I mainly do digital images on my cards, and they only need one a week that it sounded like something I could keep up with pretty easily, so I'm throwing my hat in the ring!
If it sounds like something you'd like to do, you can read the details here.
Well yesterday the weatherman was calling for rain showers, but it didn't happen and it doesn't look like it's going to rain here anytime soon either. The temperatures at night are really nice though; much cooler than we usually see here this time of year!
The cooler temperatures have me really pushing Fall, so perhaps that is why I printed off this cute Pumpkin Patrol scarecrow from Squigglefly to color.

I colored it with copic markers and used a little chalk for the sky. The leaves are from some tissue paper that they used to wrap something up in when I was checking out at the Dollar Tree. Sometimes when I'm shopping there if I see a really pretty piece of tissue that I want I'll ask them if I can have it and they always oblige. Sometimes they look at me strangely though! Anyway, I glued a bit of it to some cardstock, and then cut the leaves out and adhered them to the card with some pop dots. I almost smeared a little stickles on them, but in the end decided not to. Do you think I should?
I pierced a little swirl on the side so it would look like the leaves were being blown by a gust of wind. I wrapped the rafia around the card and then through a button. I think the raffia goes so well with scarecrows because it looks like straw!
Today is Stef's color challenge on the Card Universe group, so why don't you head over there and see what colors they are! That group just reached 100 members! I am trying to see if we can get all 100 members to participate; wouldn't that be cool?!
Whatever you do today, I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by here and spending some of your day with me!
