Whiff Of Joy *44*.....

..is a pretty sketch by Rach. I just had to play along as I got my fall kit yesterday!! You know I never think it is possible to make them cuter but oh my I just adore the images in this set!! Could be because I love fall and everything it brings but the little faces on them all are just so pretty!! Thanks so much Katharina and Elisabeth for creating such beautiful images to work with!! I just wish I was a better colorer!! LOL I love the cards til I color them in! haha

Anyways to make the card the sketch inspired I just flipped it. I have gone with this image and lovely sayings to make a card for my friend. I of course went with fall colors for this one and I am really happy to be back to these!! I am not really good with summery colors and now I will be able to get back to my distressing with inks! This one I opted with sanding the edges and on the Kraft paper I have put crackle paint on the edges. I just love this stuff ~ need to get more colors though. Paper is Bo Bunny and buttons are from A.C Moores.

Thanks so much everyone for your lovely comments on my last card and for your well wishes on my visit!! I really appreciate it and our visit was lovely!! My parents live 6 hours away and I am the kid that NEVER thought I would live away from them!! So it is hard only seeing them a handful of times a year ~ but we really appreciate the visits alot!
I hope you all have a wonderful day and that your weather is better than it is here!! LOL We have been having some torrential rain here for a couple of day!! But at least I have my fall kit to keep me company at home!! haha
