Happy Fall Ya'll

Ahhhh, awesome Saturday. The clouds are starting to roll in, may get a rain shower soon and I have no plans for most of the day! Yea! I love the sound of the rain but it makes me so sleepy. So I think I see a nap in my future!!  A few goody bags arrived in the mail the last 2 days and I couldn't wait to get one of them in particular inked up!  So then I tossed back and forth whether to color it with Distress Inks or copics...distress or copics.  I ended up coloring it in Copics, but stamped another one on watercolor paper to do a Distress inks version later on. 

Ok so seriously, I love this stamp. I really just love it. I grew up in Akron, Ohio. I now live in Florida. My favorite season hands down is Fall. However, I do not like Fall in Florida. Fall in Florida is miserable. By the time Fall is here you are so sick of the heat that when you wake up to 85-90 some degree weather it makes you sad! Especially when you see all your friends and family from back home doing "fall" things. Like going to kids games (with a light jacket on!), going to pumpkin patches (real ones, not in a church parking lot with pumpkins sitting on wood planks), going to apple orchards. I could go on and on, you see my point. I miss the changing of the leaves and I miss raking them up and jumping in them. Spiders? Bugs? didn't worry about that up north. Florida...I won't even walk in the grass barefooted!

Ok so enough rambling, now I am sad and want to go home for a visit!! :-(

So here are my card details. My Tilda is colored with Copic markers and prisma color pencils. I did some shading of the clothes and the background with the pencils. You can pick up this little beauty in Diana's shop over at Magnolia-licious. If Diana doesn't have something you want, let her know she will most definitely see what she can do. The paper is from My Minds Eye and CTMH. The flower is handmade from fabric. Stay tuned, I did a tutorial on it and will be posting that either tonight or tomorrow morning! ;-)  The sentiment is from Close to my Heart. 

This card falls into a few challenges. Some I am just making it in to!

Tracy, your card is adorable! Love the coloring, your layout, and that awesome flower! Can't wait for your tutorial on that! I'm in Ohio, we're starting to cool down, and how bout we trade places a week here and there? LOL

Tracy, I too, love this stamp. I've got it ordered. I live in Peoria, IL. and am awaiting fall. It has finally started to cool down to the 70's and is rainy. I know what you mean about fall...getting back into jeans, carrying a sweater for when it cools off, walking through the leaves as they crackle under your feet. Thanks for reawaking a memory. Hugs, Shirley

Stay cool! We were just in Florida this past summer! Ugh - so hot! Made my hair curl ;) hugs, Angela

Nancy said...

What a delightful card! I just love it - and can almost smell the smoke in the air from the burning leaves. Tilda surely looks like she is having fun and your fabric flower is the perfect touch with the DP. Great job! Thanks for sharing.

Zoe said...

Wow Tracy. This is so pretty. I just love your colouring and the leaves are perfect! Great touch with the leaves and the flower too. Hugs xxoo

Shelley said...

Tracy, I love your card, and I agree with you, we have no fall here in south Florida. I, too, miss the changing of the leaves. For the past few years I have gone up north for thanksgiving, but not this year. Shucks!

KYour coloring is perfect. How did you make the flower with the button on it? Please tell.

Dena said...

Tracy! I am just marveling at your card!!!! Your coloring with the copics is just beautiful. (I'm jealous) I can't wait to see your tutorial on your flower because I want to try it. Great look!
P.S. We have the same weather here in Houston. I always wanted to go up north when the leaves are turning, and yes I constantly worry about bugs, snakes, etc. ha ha!
Hugs, Dena
