Thank you...

Mornin' friends! 

I made today's card for the current challenge over at A Day For Daisies which is 'add some plaid'. I absolutely adore this sweet image called Puppy Sitter and I figured she would work for an early fall kind of card. First off I had to find the right plaid to base my color palette around and when I spotted this scrap of October Afternoon paper it was an absolute yes. With all of the orange, reds and yellows that I've been doing, and will continue to do, this paper gave me an opportunity to play with blues and still be on target seasonally. And yes, those are the Color Layering trees again though I changed things up a bit and used green and yellow ink for the leaves. Then I got to thinking that it would be really cute if I had this sweet girl taking her puppies for a walk in the apple orchard so I used a tiny hole punch on a bit of extra rubber and jabbed it with a stick pin so I could stamp random red apples on to the trees. Ahhhh... perfect.  ;)

Okey dokey, I've got to get moving. Talk at'cha later!   :)
