Scarecrow and Little Wizard and Some Sweet Stuff, Too!!
Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope that you are having a magnificent week. I can assure you that FALL is in the air around here so my posting for you today is quite appropriate.
This is also my debut posting for Belles 'n Whistles so I am very excited to not only be contributing there but to offer you a little sweet stuff so that you can also celebrate my first posting on the Belles 'n Whistles Blog. My sincere thanks to Summer for inviting me to be a part of this exceptionally talented and friendly group! I am so thrilled and humbled.
For my card and extras today I used the absolutely darling Scarecrow and Little Wizard which made me smile as soon as it was in my hands. All of the papers and most of the embellies were a gift from the lovely and extremely talented Suzan...so thank you so much, Suzan, for always thinking of me in such delightful ways!! My card and extras would not have been possible today without your gift!!! They are from Recollection's AUTUMN Collection.
These little cuties were stamped twice and colored with Copics (shown below) and of course propped up on dimensional tape. Nothing says FALL to me more than shocks of corn out in a field so I made one out of raffia, trimmed it with falling leaves charms and several sunflowers. I also used several pumpkin buttons which I glistened with a touch of Shimmerz.
The inside of the card this time is quite simple with a couple of buttons , more raffia, and a touch of the ribbon from the same collection which I also used on the extras below.
The giftbag contains Pumpkin Spice cookie mix and the little accordion file contains hot apple cider mix.
In addition to these Copics I also used red, yellow, blue Copics multiliners, Diamond Stickles, yellow Souffle, and white opaque.
To complement the set, Summer from Belles 'n Whistles has added one of these darling Scarecrow and Little Wizard stamps and I have added a cute little scarecrow soap dispenser and pumpkin spice hand soap and candle.
In order to be eligible to win this collection I am asking that after you leave a comment here, you leave a comment on the Belles 'n Whistles blog site and become a follower of the site. The winner will be selected at random at 12 Noon EST on Sunday, October 25.
Thank you so much for dropping by to see what's happening...Please remember that your comment here will give you an extra chance to win the sweet stuff!! Have a delightful week and hope to see you again real soon...Big hugs!!!
