Darling Butterfly



Across the miles at Thanksgiving!

     It's that time again and this week over at Peachy Keen it's a colour challenge. As you know it's also Thanksgiving on Thursday for our American friends and since I have a lot of crafty friends, some not so crafty friends plus a few family members that live state side,  I decided to make a "Happy Thanksgiving" card!! I Hope they/you like it!!

Pooh and Friends Cricut cart: fence's, basket of apples and some of the leaves

all sentiments are from "Season of Giving" by Hero Arts 
except I masked off happy and hand wrote "Across the miles" 

     I was pretty happy that I could incorporate all the required colours in the image, isn't that scarecrow toooo cute :) I just LOVE this stamp!!! It's perfect for this time of year and for creating scene's, another love of mine :) 
     The fence's were a bit of work since it cuts out two sections at a time and I couldn't really weld them together since I had cut the field in two uneven sections, which is barely even noticeable now, so I cut several out and just did a lot of cutting and gluing to get them to go with the lay of the land. 
     I made the basket 3D by cutting it twice, adding a couple pop dots inside, then gluing the sides to  each other and cutting extra apples to fill the basket up more. 
     By the expression on the sunflowers face I think she's a little nervous that bird is hungry, LOL   All the leaves above the fences are supposed to be floating down from a nearby tree after  a recent big gust of wind. So they are actually in the foreground, otherwise they would have to be different sizes, which I could have done, if I had remembered I have a punch that cuts out smaller ones, doh, LOL next time!!
     That's is for this weeks challenge, as soon as I saw it I knew which stamp I was using and that I was going to make a scene, this is a bit different than what I had in mind, but I like it much better. I've  been pretty busy trying to get the house ready to go on the market and I just haven't had time to work on it. Oh well, back at it, hubby built new railings for the front porch, off to paint, have a great day and ty so much for stopping by!! I hope your not to busy and can get your craft on! And if your state side have a wonderful Thanksgiving, surrounded by your loved one's, stay safe!! :) 

Big inky hugs and glitter wishes!!
