Indian Summer

Hi, everyone! Happy Saturday!
I love Saturday blogging - there are always so many great challenges and creations in blogland on the weekends, and today is no exception; in fact, today is a new challenge day at Catch the Bug Blog, featuring all kinds of sweet Bugaboo Stamps images! Make sure you hop on by to check out all the wonderful DT eye-candy, and we hope you join us for the fun!
This week's theme is

Indian Summer

I fell in love with this image when Jodie released it. It is perfect for today's theme, I think! This is the Jar-Autumn image from Bugaboo Stamps. I love all the fall elements in this image: the sunflower, pumpkin, acorns and pretty leaves. They all remind me of harvest, which is exactly what time of year Indian Summer is where I am from! There is nothing like the bright, pretty skies and warmer temperatures during harvest season! *sigh* I think I'm missing my favorite farm! Autumn is pretty here in SC, but it's nothing like MI autumn.

I colored my image in PSE (as is typical for me). I used some papers from Paper Studio, a Sizzlit die for my corners, some SU punches for my sentiment and a CTMH edge bracket. I also used some rhinestone leaves that pulled from a border sticker that is by Paper Studio.

Now it's your turn to pick a favorite image, or try something new from Bugaboo Stamps, whip up your project and head on over to enter it into the Mr. Linky!

  1. Gorgeous card! Love the fall colors! Our leaves have been turning for about a month now. They started the second week of August which is the earliest I can remember for the Maples to turn red and start dropping leaves. Think we will be in full color by the end of this month.

  2. Love this card! Beautiful fall colors and a cute image! Thanks for joining us at Jo's FC;-)
