A little dragon fall festivity for you! :0)

Hi, everyone! I'm here to announce the next Stamping with the Dragon Challenge Blog challenge. It's a sponsored challenge, and our wonderful sponsor this time around is none other than Stamping Dragon Designs! :0) We have a theme to follow, and this week it is Fun Things to do in the Fall, so bust out your fall coloring mediums, your leaves and apples and cider, and show us what you've got! :0)

For me, fall has always been filled with family time! With recently moving to WV, our annual trips to the cider mills and orchards that we were so accustomed to have halted (none of those near here!). This is probably one of the hardest adjustments of our move for me. I had a great time remembering our great times in the past, though, while I worked on these cuties! :0)

These cards use images that are currently available in the GRAB BAG for a HUGE discounted price (and there is one more image in that grab bag that I do not show here, so hurry over and pick yours up before the price increases on Nov 1!). The Grab Bag price is $3.00, and individual images are that, it's a BUY ONE GET TWO FREE DEAL!!! Woohooo!!! Janette also offers three other GRAB BAGS this month (again....only available for a few more days!) that include digital paper packs and one with her great decoupage items! 

Ahhhh....back to my cards.....hehehe....Here are some additional pictures of the cards, closer for a better looky-loo! :0)

This image is called Cart Ride. So much fun to go on a wagon ride as a kid! I love going on the BIG wagons, at the farms, and through the corn fields on farm tours. Nothing like the crisp, cool air and a wagon ride! :0)
For my card, I used a Meljen's Designs sentiment that was a freebie on her site some time ago. It is cut with Spellbinders Label Eighteen die. The Prima leaves are attached to the card with some ribbon tape, and the papers in the background are by K&Company. I colored my image in PSE (I've been really lazy about busting out my Copics, lately. :0(  )

My next card uses an image called Jiggy Leaves.

I used the same Prima leaves on this, as on the other card. Jiggy is colored in PSE, too, and I used a lot of texture and effects on him. Here is a closer look at the coloring I did on Jiggy.

Nothing too fancy-shmancy today.....I'm trying to make my cards so that they can be mailed easily, and I know I had been really working the 3D embellishes, lately, so I cut back a bit here. :0)
