Think Fall

I have to say in the "realest" sense of the word, thinking fall has been kind of hard to do in the Deep South this year. Looks like we're going from summer to winter and missing the best parts of fall, days of temps that are just perfect and leaves changing to gorgeous shades from deepest yellow to brilliant red. This year we get hot one day and cold the next, and because it's been so dry, the leaves are going from green to brown and a fast fall off the trees.

This week Jeni, one of the DTs on Sassy Cheryls Challenge Blog, has challenged us to create a card using fall colors. This adorable image is called "Crosseyed Butterfly" With fall coming on, butterflies are going to be gone for a while, so she's enjoying this last one of the season. The image is colored with copics. Be sure to check out the Sassy Cheryls Store , as she's adding new images all the time. Oh and she's just added some adorably mischievous elves.
The papers are all from Summer Drigg's Falling for Fall kit. I even used the elements of the leaves and acorns from the kit with my Make the Cut software to create the cut files for the leaves and acorn to cout with my Cricut. The Thankful sentiment was from the $1 bin from Michaels and perfect for this last sighting of a butterfly.
Hope you all have a wonderful and crafty day and week.
