LPSC34: Happy Fall Y'all!...


...Ok, so I can't even begin to compile my thoughts on how AMAZINGLY FUN my weekend was because right now I am deliriously tired. But I will tell you that saying I had a BLAST doesn't even begin to cover it...WOW!

However, I will tell you that I cranked out some cards in addition to splitting my sides open laughing, and today's card is one of them!

Before I get started though, I want to send bday shout outs to one of our own, Bonnie Sharp! It's her birthday and she is FABULOUS and we are all sending you big fuzzy hugs! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BONNIE!

When I first saw this color challenge from Little Paper Shop, I was little skeered :) It totally fits though for a fall challenge and while we are welcoming all the signs of fall-back to school, football, cooler weather, and changing colors...this challenge is pretty darn appropriate!

I used the new {BOO} set, which is still 10% off ONLY THROUGH TODAY at LPS to create my card. As I sat across from my friend and one of my stamping idols, Jessie, I said "what does this card need". You will all be SHOCKED if you know Jess...she said' SPIRAL CLIPS!" I used my Copics to color in the pumpkins in shades close to Pumpkin Pie and Summer Sun, and found a great piece of Sassafrass DP that matched all 3 of these colors and also carried through some of that Summer Sun color. Finished it off w/ a paper tole on the center pumpkin and went over that one w/ my yellow Spica pen.

Well, I'm off to try and catch up on my life here...but thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to stop by the LPS BLOG for some more AWESOME samples from the LPS DT!

See you soon!
