Homemade With Love

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  I have a bunch of stuff going on and haven't been able to get in my craft room much lately, but I am hoping to get there later today for a bit.  Until then, I have a quick post to share a card I made for a few challenges with a fall theme.  It doesn't seem much like fall here.  It's been in the 80s and 90s and not a drop of rain since Labor Day!  I'm actually looking forward to the cooler days.

Here is the card I made:

Nothing says fall like freshly-baked apple pie!  Yummy!  My Mom used to make the best apple pie!  My card base and mats are GKD Cranberry Tart and the patterned papers are from the Bo Bunny Forever Fall 6x6 pad.  My sweet image is Apple Bake from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Three metallic leaves and a double-loop satin bow finished my simple card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll try to make my way around later this afternoon.  I will be back later tonight with another post and some exciting news!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

  24. Hi, Carla! I am here for two reasons! First, I was reviewing our entries from last week and found that none of us had left a comment for you. I was celebrating a religious holiday, so it is possible that I am culpable! So I want to make up for that, and of course, I have to come here to steal paper ideas!

    Your card is fabulous! I love the intense colors and (you knew it) the wonderful papers. Your coloring is always top notch and this is no exception. Nice composition and construction. Just an overall awesome design! Thanks for slipping this under our door here at 613 Avenue Create! Hope to see you in the "Hood" this week!


Thanks so much for visiting and leaving me a comment! I really appreciate it! Carla
