CAS-ual Fridays #71--Fall Fun


Hi there, friends!  It's still a little quiet here on the blog, but did you notice my new look?  Many thanks to my sweet and talented friend, Karen Baker, for giving my blog a facelift.  She's an incredibly sweet and talented crafter and designer, in case you didn't already know.  *wink*

Soooo, time for a new CAS-ual Fridays challenge!  I didn't think I'd be able to get a card done for this week since my craft room is still being painted and my supplies are all over the house.  Luckily I had a card that I made a while back that I hadn't posted yet, and it fits perfectly with this week's theme, Fall Fun.


We're sponsored this week by Great Impressions Stamps, and they are offering up a gift certificate to our winner.  Thank you, Great Impressions!


I used the scarecrow and pumpkin from Paper Smooches' Autumn Groves, adding color with my Prisma pencils and stitched hills for a clean and simple landscape.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Rustic Cream), Stampin' Up! (Early Espresso)
Stamps:  Paper Smooches (Autumn Groves, Metropolis)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Early Espresso)
Tools:  We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)
Accessories:  Queen & Co. (rhinestones), thread
Coloring medium:  Prismacolor Premier pencils

We're pumpkin picking this weekend to welcome the cooler weather and official start of Autumn.  What do you have planned?

Stop by the CAS-ual Fridays blog for more Fall inspiration and to link up your clean and simple creation!

Thanks for stopping by!

the way you did those hills is so clever, I am not sure how you got the stitching so perfect, my hills wouldn't be rolling, they would be mountains!

Another amazing CAS card! This is adorable! Oh I've been meaning to ask...is Cloud9 planning on extending the days to their challenges? I've been missing it because it's so short. And I really, really wanted to play along.
