Falling for Fall

There was this song on Noggin which is now Nick Jr.,  sung by Moose A. Moose called Falling For Fall (all you moms of young children should know what I'm talking about)  For the first few weeks of fall every year, I go around the house singing it.  I think my kids are secretly sick of hearing me sing it already!!  If you'd like to hear the song, click here, but I must warn you - it does get addicting!  You won't be able to get it out of your head!!

On to my creation - I just love PNG files!!!!  You can merge as many images as you want to create a whole other scene or image.  For my card today, I took the Autumn Harvest image from Faith at D2D for participating in the Progressive Challenge and merged it with this adorable little gal from Bugaboo Stamps
I finished it all off with an awesome sentiment - from TLC, of course!!

Now isn't she precious on top of those punkins?!?  I created the sky by cutting out a cloud on my Cricut and sponging some Colorbox Sky Blue Pigment Ink around the cloud bumps behind the image.  I had just watched a youtube video from Suzanne Dean about this technique and thought I'd give it a try.  You can find the video by clicking here.  I might need a few more times to perfect it, lol!!! I used the Bugaboo Stamps Wacky Wednesday Challenge colors and the sketch from Deconstructing Jen as my inspiration for my card!

Thanks for stopping by today, and hoping you each have a wonderful day!
