Autumn Blog Hop at The Craft's Meow!

The Craft's Meow

It's time for our monthly themed blog hop at The Craft's Meow!  This month our theme is Autumn.  If you arrived here from Larissa's blog, then you're on the right track.  If you'd like to start our hop at the beginning, please go to the Craft's Meow Blog, where you'll find a compete listing of the blogs participating, and you'll be directed from one blog to the next.

Autumn is my favorite season, so I had a ball making my card this time!

TCM Oct Blog Hop Fall


I put together a little scene using elements from our Happy Fall stamp set.  After masking and stamping my corn and the scarecrow, I paper-pieced him, and colored the corn with markers.  Then I sponged on some distress inks lightly in the background, added some die-cut clouds, and framed up my scene with kraft, leaving a small border at the bottom big enough to add my sentiment and the pieced pumpkin.  The little bird is actually from our Lovely Birds set.  Here are the stamp sets I used:
