It's Turkey Time

I'm getting so excited because we're heading into my favorite season - FALL!  The colors are amazing this time of year and I remember as a little girl traveling up to Vermont with my grandparents every year in the fall "to see the foliage".

I love this new image from TLC which is part of the new set called, It's Fall Time, which you can find in the TLC store by clicking here.  You've got to see the other sentiments in the set - so cute and perfect for the fall season!!

I wanted to represent all the fall colors so I colored each leaf in the image in fall-inspired Copic colors (reds, greens and golden yellows).   The image itself is colored in E00, E31 and E50 to give an aged look.  The beige colored cardstock has a wood-grain embossing already imprinted on it (not sure if you can tell in the pic) and reminded me of a tree stump, and so I continued to cut some leaves on my Cricut Expression, embossed them in a Swiss Dot embossing folder and distressed them for a fall-crunchy leaf appearance!  I used some foam squares to pop the image off the card with 3D Dots by EK Success.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you're havin' a fabulous day!

  2. Sara, this is adorable! Love the image and the embossed/distressed leaves are beautiful, perfect accent. I love fall too, wish it would hurry and get here, it's been so humid! Love the playlist, that's my fave version of "Somewhere over the Rainbow"!

  3. Another outta the park! Just like the Sox! LOL Seriously, this card is a perfect testiment to fall! I love it!

  4. Hi, Sara,

    I just love your card! It's very unique and so creative!! I'm glad you took the Midnight Madness challenge!! By the way, I read your "About" and you and I sound so much alike we could be soul sisters!!!

  5. First off HI! I have missed you too. It seems like forever to me. A big ol CONGRATS on the making the Design Team over at TLC. I love her stuff. I also saw you are an Outlaws Designer.. You go girl!! That is so cool. I for one am glad because I love seeing your stuff all over :) This is so pretty.. I am partial though because Fall is my fav season as well. I am so jealous you got to witness it in Vermont. I have told hubby so many times we HAVE to see Vermont in the Fall someday. I have seen it in pics and TV and stuff and it is breathe taking. I miss the gorgeous leave changing that I had in Kentucky. We do not get to witness that here on the Gulf Coast. :( It is still VERY hot here. BOO!
    I hope you are doing well and hope to get to catch up with you soon! *hugs*
