Go forward...

Good morning!

It's my turn to share some inspiration on the 7 Kids Customers Create Facebook page and once again I went back to my Dreamerland collection of stamps to ink up. About a month ago Kelly got in a huge order of these darling kiddos and I was able to snag a bunch of them that had been on my wish list. Hopping Along With Me was one of those recent additions even if she isn't from the newest release. Something about the way these images inspire a story on every card totally appeals to my crafty process. Now for some reason I always envisioned this little gal playing alongside a creek or stream and considering how bundled up she is, using fall colors in the background was a natural choice. The perspective was a total experiment and while I don't feel that I 100% nailed it I am pretty happy with the end result. :) 
Ok, the new "LEAVES" challenge just kicked off and as always there is a $20 gift certificate to the 7 Kids store up for grabs and there are so many fun seasonal items starting to come in that you won't want to miss!
