Pumpkin Spice and everything nice...

Hi there!

It's my day to share a card over on the 7 Kids Customers Create Facebook page and even though we are still technically in August it definitely feels like we have made the turn into Autumn already and I am loving it! Nights and morning are cooler, leaves are starting to change here and there and Pumpkin Spice everything can be found in stores and shops every where, LOL! This had me grabbing out the new Fall Break paper kit that I recently got for inspiration. All of the prints in this collection are just gorgeous but my absolute favorites are the scene strips and cut apart pages that provide tons of cool fall scene backgrounds super quickly. I particularly liked this scene with the bicycle and decided to grab my binder of Deep Red City Girl stamps to see if any of them would work with it. Wouldn't you know I found the perfect cold weather cutie in the Winter Time set. I love that by simply choosing Copic colors inspired by the paper she works just as well for a Fall themed card as a Winter one. All I had to do was fussy cut her out and pop her right on top of that great pre-printed scene and this card was practically done! :)
Ok, our current "Back to School" challenge just got under way so there is plenty of time to get inky and join the fun. As always there is a $20 gift certificate to the 7 Kids store up for grabs and the store is getting new seasonal goodies every day!
