HELLO EVERYONE!! Hope is all well with you this hot Sunday morning. We have had summer weather here for the last week. I actually burned at two of my daughters games. I have had an experience at her games. I always thought that playing soccer or anything else, we focused on the kids learning and having fun. I know they all want to win but when you have coaches and parents that scream at their players is total ridiculous. Is that how they want to raise their kids? Make them think that the only thing you are trying to do is win. Kids need to learn how to loose and have fun. Sitting in the stands you hear parents bad mouthing the other team and yelling at their kids. When will things not be so competitive. My daughter has been bummed about loosing but she knows that her team did their best and that is all you can do. Sorry, I will get off my rant, although I could go on and on.
Now let's talk about the challenge that we are having this week. We are going to add some leaves ( more then three ) to our cards. Robyn's Fetish is our sponsor this week. Robyn let us choose one digi from her images. I chose Fall Pumpkin. I love this image and this also helps with those cards that I send out. The image was one pumpkin but I made three out of them. I punched out all the leaves making the pumpkins look like they are sitting in a pile of leaves. Added a great quote about leaves and I'm done. Before I show you the card that I called Watch The Leaves Turn, let's tell you what generous prize that Robyn is giving to the winner this week.
3 Images
Of The Winners Choice
Some of the leaves that I punched are popped off the page with pop ups. I think you can tell from this picture. I thought the saying was perfect for this card. Here is the products that I used for this card.
Cardstock -- Close To My Heart & The Paper Studio
Paper -- Close To My Heart and DCWV
Quote -- Colorbok Book of Vellum Pack Called Seasons
Punch For Leaves -- The Paper Studio
Glittered Leaves -- Dress It Up
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils
Fall should hit here some time and them I will be happy. I'm one of those people that like the cold. Hope you enjoyed the post and add your projects to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. Have a great week and I will see you next Sunday!!
