I love the pout on her face. I think it goes well with what I think of as one of the wonderful things about autumn. Somedays it is warm and sunny, some cold and rainy, some all of the above. Which means that there are days perfect for going and playing at the pumpkin patch, or splashing in puddles, or staying home and curling up and reading.
What if I? That is one of my favorite questions. Along with How could/would I? They are what leads all great innovation and are the cornerstone to creativity. Honestly, in the kitchen, they were what lead to the greatest things I have ever made and/or tasted (and some of the worst). In crafting it is much the same way, always trying to figure out how to do something. This card came from those questions, but when I think about it, doesn’t everything really?
Isn’t she cute? I just love this little sprite. The quote makes me unbelievably happy as well. “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower” -swoon That is exactly how I feel. This card came together so well that it exceeded my expectations completely! Even when I was playing around making the background paper my husband peeked at it and said “That’s fall”, I knew I had it right at that point.
Is it here yet? Ah, fall, how I love you. I am already getting excited about putting more blankets back on the bed. I know that we will probably have at least some more heat, but it is so close I can taste it. Oh, and it tastes wonderful! A bit like pumpkin spice…
Making myself feel really brilliant today, while I was working on figuring out the layout of this sketch and trying to get the measurements correct for cutting, all of a sudden I realized that the correct measurements are actually written on the sketch. I sware I spend so much time looking at the shapes on a sketch that I just didn’t notice that there were numbers, Well that made things easier. Geezes, Gina!
