Happy Fall Home Decor

My little boy asked me the other day if he could take his teacher a present.  How sweet of him!  I had just bought some little fall decorations at the dollar store with the intention of jazzing them up a bit.  With the help of my Cricut and Create a Critter 2, I fixed this little thing up!

And, of course, my little owl had to have a Peachy Keen face!  I stamped this one from the PK-754 Critter Faces.  Added some pen work and chalk, then put her in her new pumpkin home.  DS's teacher will love it, but I'm going to have to make one for us!

I'm entering this project in the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge # : Anything Goes.  You can find it here.

Hope you liked this little owl, and hope you are having a Happy Fall!

Hey There, Pumpkin!

It's finally beginning to feel like autumn here in southern Oklahoma.  In the mornings, anyway!  And, we are busy planning trips to hay mazes and pumpkin patches, so what better time to get back in the swing of some card making?

I got my inspiration from the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge for this week.  It's a photo inspiration:

You can find their challenge here.

I loved this little ghost from Peachy Keen Stamps (PK-M04 Mini Ghost), and since he's so friendly, I thought he went well with the sentiment from a small set by Studio G.  Here's a close-up of the sweet little ghost.

I'm also entering this card in the October 2013 Card Challenge at A Cherry On Top.  You can find it here.  That challenge was to just make a Fall or Halloween card.  But I get a bonus entry for having a pumpkin and/or leaves.  And I put plenty of leaves on this card.  All cut with my Cricut and the Straight From the Nest cartridge.

Hope you like this card, and hope you have a nice autumn day!
