Life is a matter of moments..

And, we hope you'll have some special moments as you travel along our blog hop today!
Hello stampin' friends! Welcome! If you're on the blog hop and you started at Angie-Scrapgirl or at the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog, then you're all set! I'm just the second stop on your trip to see all the Bats and Broomsticks we have to show you!


I was all set to go with Tilda with broomstick and had even started to color her when I received a package from Diana! You know what that means, righta?! New rubbah! Well, I just love fall and as a child this was our favorite thing to do! How was I to resist stampin' and colorin' her up? I just couldn't!
This time I colored Tilda and then was stuck for paper to use. I tried all shades of orange dp and then laid my image on this Graphic 45 teal pattern-there was no going back. In real life the teal matches her jeans a little better than in my photo! The card layout was my next struggle and you know I'm not very good at the gorgeous flower bouquets made by so many of you! I knew I wanted to use my border punch and Spellbinder leaves. You can see the results! The sentiment is from SU and of course, Tilda is at Magnolia-licious right now!
CANDY ALERT
I had so many colors out on my table that I did not keep track, so sorry! Tilda is stamped on the paper that's all the rage for copics-the X-Press IT blending card. I ordered a ream and if you leave a comment I would like to send YOU some to try!! Diana has or will be selling smaller quantities in the store so it will be more affordable! Thanks, Diana! But for now I'd like to send you a little package! Please leave a comment saying anything you like or a favorite fall activity or food! I'll ship anywhere-please leave your comment by Friday, September 25. Thanks!
Please travel on now to see what the most talented Janiel-Scrappyjan has to show you!!
Have a wonderful Monday!
ETA: I'm so sorry that I wasn't clear! I will choose one winner for some Xpress it blending card on Saturday! please forgive me!
Cheryl

Love the card. I used to love to play in the leaves. We would pile them up and jump in them. Those were the days. Would love to win some of that paper.

quiltindiva said...

Love your card! It just speaks "Fall is in the air"! And the little girl looks like she is having such fun. I remember those days of raking leaves and jumping in them and having a blast, but that has been many many years ago!

The Bug said...

Okay - I absolutely LOVE this image! You did a great job with it! I love to play in the leaves with my kids in the fall so this is the perfect image in my opinion!

Cheryl, Your card is so luxurious. I love the fall colors and little Tilda wollowing in the leaves.. Indeed, life is a matter of moments and fall is one of those favorite moments I love.. The colors, the smell between summer and fall is so fresh and crisp.. Living in the deep south I miss that and wish you who live up north could bottle the smell up and send it to us.. Thank you for the chance to win..
Hugs, Jean

Cheryl, this card is the sweetest card. I can almost smell the earthy smell of decaying leaves, it so reminds me of being a kid again! To bad if I run and jump in a pile of leaves now I'd probably break a hip or something lol. Love your choice/change of venue. Really enjoy your colors and your beautiful leaf bouquet! Fall is my favorite season, right after spring ;) Thanks for sharing!

Although I now live in the south, I originally came from Cape Cod, and my favorite time of the year was fall----in NH! Thanx for bringing back some sweet memories!

marie said...

The stamp is so nice...it's just bring back memories. Love the card, nice work. Thanks

Teri said...

Oh Cheryl, this is just adorable!! One of my favorite things to do, too, as a little girl! We'd also make "houses" out of leaves, complete with "rooms", they'd cover the whole side yard, then we'd bring out the doll cradles and cribs, and play the day away!!! It's amazing how creative four little girls got when we were outside playing!!! Anyway, thank you so much for sharing such a darling card and bringing back special memories!!!
Hugs,
Teri

OMG I LOVE this little image ... Every time I think I've got all the Tildas I NEED for now(can we EVER have enough) they come out with new even cuter images & I want them all !!! You have made this look like an amazing snapshot of a child rolling in the leaves. Love your wonderful vivid colors & that punch & the Spellbinder leaves are to "die" for.
So tell me what is so great about this new paper for coloring with the Copics. I've tried everything & some work pretty well except for when I use my reds ... They bleed out of the lines sooooo easy ... Would love to find the "Perfect" paper ...
Hugs, Janie
