Ode To Fall


Today is a beautiful fall day in the Pacific Northwest and it is Once Upon a Wednesday at the Pixie Cottage! Mid week does not get much better than that :)
Today at the Pixie Cottage we have a sketch from the lovely and talented Aud Nordheim. Along with our sketch we would like you to use the color Orange. As always there are awesome prizes to be won so go and dig out your orange!
The little tag is removable and has a fall poem that reads:

I love fall! Fall is exciting.
It's apples and cider.
It's an airborne spider.
It's pumpkins in bins.
It's burrs on dog's chins.
It's wind blowing leaves.
It's chilly red knees.
It's clouds in the sky.
It's fall. That's why...
I love fall.
