Banana Split Sunday...
...and more World Card Making Day projects to finish today! Hasn't it been fun?!
Here's another Penny card for you! She just makes me smile...my 15 yo ds and I spent a couple of hours manning the Pumpkin Patch (our church youth group's fund-raiser) yesterday, and although it was hot and humid, it was so much fun! One little guy about 2 years old was pumpkin shopping for the first time, and he just ran from one palette of pumpkins to the next touching everything, all wide-eyed with wonder! So cute! There is a lot to see...we have some of the coolest pumpkins! Gnarly warty green ones, pale white smooth ones, translucent veiny-skinned ones...and of course, the typical orange ones we all associate with the arrival of Fall.
I actually took my basket of Copics with me and colored to pass the time while we were there...and the place inspired me! I wanted to try to incorporate some of the textures and colors of the Pumpkin Patch into my card, so I started with My Mind's Eye designer paper, inked all the edges, then added a piece of *stuff* I've had for years (and I do mean years!) that reminds me of hay or corn silk...I embellished with hemp-tied buttons and a raffia bow. The sentiment is from another 2RB set, Fuzzy Bears, but it works so well with Penny!
You've gotta go see all the cute things that our design team has done this week! I hope you'll play along! You might win a Penny stamp! :)
