Happy fall, sweet friends! Well, at least it's fall up north, but we are keeping a close watch on Hurricane Matthew and are prepared. I really enjoyed coloring up this new fall digital image, and I love the wooden wheelbarrow. And would you believe there is a Turks cap or turban squash? That's the green one on top. What a haul, eh? Allison Cope used this designer paper for one of her cards, and I fell in love with it and bought some for myself. It's a perfect color pallet and, I also am participating in this week's Color Challenge, which is a wonderful array of fall colors. I so love playing challenges when I can - yay!
After coloring my image, I die cut it and put it in my MISTI to add a sentiment from a clear stamp set. Just seemed to fit for my card. Then I cut the DP, added it to my card base, and added my focal image. Simple layout and very mail friendly.
Thank you so much for taking a closer look, and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week! Praying for all those affected by the hurricane and hoping we are fine. Big hugs, sweet friends!

Totally awesome, Cheryl! Your coloring is amazing and I NEED/WANT some of that beautiful dp. It looks spectacular with your image. Hope you're doing well today and prayers for you and hubby, along with everyone in the path of the hurricane.

Bestill my heart Cheryl, this is stunning in so many ways. The way you colored this image in and brought it to life is so inspiring! I grew up on a farm where we would use an old wooden wheelbarrow to cart the potatoes and pumpkins out with, and I did not much care for that task. However, I love what you have created here, and now those memories make me chuckle and smile. This plaid background is sensational and truly showcases this gorgeous image in all its glory! The sentiment is absolutely perfect for this image. I sure am praying for you and your family and hoping hurricane Matthew loses steam before hitting land in Florida and along the coast. Be safe! Hugs! ~Karen.
