Welcome Autumn

This week's challenge over in the Hanna Stamps Forum is to make an autumn card. I just love this Pumpkin Patch Riley and had to use him for my card. For a change, I decided to try coloring with Koh-i-nor pencils and gamsol. It turned out okay, but I still prefer my copic markers.

Anyway, if you have a question about something, let me know. Be sure and stop by and join us in the challenge. Your name goes into a the hat once for every challenge you complete during the month for a chance to win a stamp set at the next release party.

I think we skipped autumn and went straight to winter. Can you believe it was snowing yesterday?! It didn't stick, of course, but still . . . it was snowing! Edited to add: I wrote this post last night and we woke up to snow this morning that is actually sticking (for now anyway). Crazy weather. Have a great weekend!

Holy Moly!! Where do you live? Here is Florida, it's still highs in the upper 80's this weekend...of course, it NEVER snows in FLA, but it can get in the 30's,...not until mid December though!
PS Great card!
