I had time to do the SCS Color Challenge today! OK – so maybe I didn’t have time, but I made time… Really Rust, Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze. Beautiful color combo to work with. I couldn’t resist!
I had thought I would use a different stamp today, but the colors this morning just called to this adorable scarecrow from Lizzie Anne Designs. I had ordered him last week, and he was begging to see ink. 😉 He’s colored with Copic Markers and accented with foof-a-la bloom and dew drops. I also pulled out my new Cuttlebug embossing edges for the dots at the bottom. This was fun and fast.
I’ll be sending this card to my local friend, Carrie. She’s a busy mom of 4 little ones with a wonderfully sweet husband who farms. Harvest blessings abound to them, but farming is a hard life on the whole family, especially at planting and harvest times. Carrie has a lot of extremely long, ‘going it alone’ days this time of year. I know I’m blessed by our farming American families, and you are too (even if you don’t realize it!) If you have one of those special families in your life that’s harvesting right now, send a little pick me up. Your sincere appreciation will bring a smile in the middle of a long, tiring day. I promise, you can make a difference.
See you tomorrow!
