Hola chicas

So have you seen the full reveals of the new TGF stamps on the DT's blogs this morning? They are all super cute, as always, but I have to say that I think the new Wild Sprout Savannah is my fave this release. I was so proud of myself for even guessing she was a can-can dancer on Saturday! It's the little things I tell ya... :)
Man, can you believe this is the last day of August? The summer really seems to have flown by this year. I guess the changing of seasons inspired me to make this card, as I am still all about my beautiful, crisp fall days. :)
I altered Anya from the Matey set for this one, just removed her sword and paper pieced her kerchief into a knit cap as well as a pieced sweater to match. Then I figured she needed a few friends and the squirrels came instantly to mind. Love how this turned out!
Adios amigas!

I'm loving this! Fall is my favorite time of year (and yes, my birthday is in Sept). Everytime I see these squirrels, they make me happy. Great paper piecing! Totally looks like a knit hat now!

Like I said in the TGF Galleria, I love this card so much! I love the coloring you did on her hair too. I will have to see if I can do that. She has the same color hair as my BFF and she would love an Anya colored to look like her!
