My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Happy Fall Y'All

Hi Everyone!
I hope you had a great weekend.  The weather made a turn around my area last week, and it really feels like fall!
So, with that mood in mind, I have a card that celebrates Autumn today.  Have you been enjoying the holiday stamps from Scrolls Work that I have been able to show you here on the blog?  They have really been fun to stamp with, so the pleasure has been mine.

The stamp on this card is Jim Bob the Scarecrow and I colored him with my pencils and a blender pen. Easy as can be.

I made sure and roughed up the edges of my paper layers to add to the rustic feel of the card.  The twine and buttons helped me achieve the overall look too.  Like the little leaf brad on the Happy Fall sentiment?

Have the leaves started turning colors where you live?  That is my favorite thing about fall.  The orange, red, yellow colors are so vibrant here beginning in October.  Just don't ask me how I feel about raking them up ;)

Thanks for visiting!

Details not listed above-Paper: The Paper Company, Pixi Press, Pencils: Koh-I-Noor, buttons, brad and twine from my supplies.

Cute cute cute! I love all the details you put in this card! The brad and buttons all look so fun! BTW, we mulch our leaves to make food for the lawn, so I don't mind cleaning up the leaves, lol. ~Diane

oh I love the twine and the edges..... love this autumn card. LOL, yup, don't like raking much either - we have lots and lots of trees around the house. But definitely love this time of the year.
