I received my Stampin' Up order from the new catalog while I was away on vacation last week so you can just imagine how excited I was to break out the ink and new stamps and begin stamping!
This week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge, presented on Julee's blog POETIC ARTISTRY ,is the perfect layout for my new Stampin' Up! set called Happy Blessings.
I love the colors of the background paper, made by Basic Grey, and the SU olive green and chocolate chip cardstock worked perfectly with it. I stamped the sentiment on a pumpkin punchout using a Martha Stewart Pumpkin punch. The scarecrow is colored with Prismacolor pencils.
I started out using a very pretty satin ribbon in the center that says pumpkin patch on it but it was just too elegant looking for this scarecrow card and so I changed my mind and decided to use the natural raffia. I like the look and it makes me think that perhaps the scarecrow is spilling his stuffing.
This is Julee's sketch challenge for this week. I really enjoyed getting to join in on this week's sketch.
The sun is finally out after a lot of rain so I think I'll take the dogs out for a romp while I can stay dry.
