"Falling For You!"

Hello crafty people! How is everyone doing with their Christmas cards? I've had a very productive week &  managed to put a serious dent in my list. Now, if I could only say the same about my shopping list! The snow has been flying here for atleast 6 weeks now so it seems a little odd to be posting a fall themed card. This sweet image reminds me of my youngest granddaughter Emily who loves to help with any yard work we are doing when she is here visiting. My plants are always well watered & she loves raking leaves with Grandpa! Getting off topic a bit here but I bought myself an early Christmas present the other exercise bike....I know, that's more punishment than present but I really need to get more exercise. We don't have room for a treadmill so the bike was the next best thing. Poor Bill spent nearly 4 hrs. putting it together today...there were a few naughty words flying around at one point! Now I just need to find the energy to hop on & ride it. Wish me luck!

So, about my card. The adorable image is from Paper Pretties & is aptly named "falling for you". I have colored her with prismacolor pencils. The DP are from my stash & I'm sorry but I have no idea of the maker, CS is Prism, the embellies are the lovely Whimsical Flourish by Memory Box, leaves are from the good old dollar store & the sentiment is a Studio G clear stamp. I really wish I could get better pictures of my cards because the colors in this one are very washed out...they are actually very rich in real life.

  8. Beautiful fall card and such pretty coloring too! We didn't get any snow here yet where I live, but I think I'm finished raking leaves now. My little ones love the jump and play in the leaves! Good luck with your new excercise bike!

  9. Darling fall card! Thanks so much for joining us this week at 'ABC' Challenges. I wouldn't be too thrilled about an excercise bike either - can't make cards while I'm on the bike - LOL!

  10. Gorgeous, I love the colours and the die cuts, so pretty. I am gradually getting there with making christmas cards and gifts but still have a way to go yet, I only like snow when it's warm and snugly inside and looks pretty through the window lol so I hoping we don't get any here too soon, keep warm
