Autumn Days

Hello All, it is my turn to "host" the new challenge this week
at "The Sisterhood of Crafters" and our theme is "Fall Colors"

My first thought went right away to fall leaves, but I have been having this "urge"
lately to use some of my very neglected stamps.....
Nothing speaks fall like a "Ring Necked Pheasant"....
We used to see lots of them, I think I have seen one here in maybe 10 years...
we think the fox are the cause of that...so sad!!


I used a Stampin Up set "Autumn Days" for my wheat and pheasant
The pheasant was colored with SU markers Early Expresso, Soft Suede and Cajun Craze
The wheat was stamped in SU Crushed Curry and So Saffron

I have lots of scraps as I am sure you all do
and my first instinct was to grab a pad of paper instead of "digging" through my scraps....
but I grabbed my "brown" bag of scraps and this piece of paper is the first I pulled out...
perfect!!  But, I still have a scrap of the scrap left...lol!!

The little leaves were just "floating" around on my desk, so I added them
along with some sequins and the ribbon, which is also from SU!!

Well, I have to tell you, it felt "GOOD" to get some of those old stamps, pens and inks
out and put to use, so good I just might have to do it again!!

So my sweet friends, why not head on over to "The Sisterhood" and see what my
"Sistahs" have created to inspire you!!
We also have two visiting guest design "step-sisters" which have some awesome
projects as well!!!

Oh, how beautiful! I love how you stamped the wheat in the background, and nice job with the colors on the pheasant! Your ribbon adds a really pretty pop of color, too. Love seeing your stamps in use. Hey, use it or lose it, right? Glad you enjoyed the Halloween card, BTW!
