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.

Trick or Treat


Today am posting a card with one of my favorite Halloween stamp sets. This 3 piece stamp set is from Eat Cake Graphics. My scene uses Trick or Treators, Candy hands and Porch with Light.
I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to place my images on my paper and then sponged the sky, moon and grass with Distress inks and accented the light and some of the costumes with Stickles. The stamped scene ends up being really large so my card is 6"x6" without a lot of room for embellishments. Luckily, the kids are so cute you don't need many :)
