“Falling” for You!

Happy FRIDAY!!! Holy WOW!  It’s hard to believe that we’re inching up on Thanksgiving!  This week my family got happy, happy news.   My older son, Austin, got accepted to his first choice for college, Belmont University!  This senior year (& life, in general) is going by WAY too fast!

Today we are featuring a 1-1/2″ pendant that was ordered by two precious girls.  The sisters wanted something special for their mother for Christmas.  I can’t wait to find out her reaction!  It’s not too early to get your Christmas orders in.  Things get a little hectic in the Sassy workroom around the holidays.  Email questions and/or orders to missyandtrisha@comcast.net.

Have I mentioned that Fall is my FAVORITE time of year?  I know….at LEAST 100 times!!!  This year, the leaves are especially beautiful here in Tennessee!  I am in awe of the beauty that God had provided for us to enjoy!


Speaking of Fall (and leaves)….It’s challenge time at Sister Act Card Challenge BlogWings and Willows  is the generous sponsor for our challenge.  You can check out their Etsy site for some great digital images.  For my project this week, I chose this cutie, “Leaf Me”,  from Whimsie Doodles.  He reminds me that, although the leaves are lovely to look at, there will be some serious work to do in the coming weeks!  He’s colored up with copics,  & the leaves embellished with stardust Stickles.  The sky was made from a homemade cloud template and some Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass ink.  My paper came from two different 6 X 6 pads.  The background paper is from Doodlebug Designs, Happy Harvest, while the stripe pattern is called Harvest Lane by Simple Stories.  I found the acorn embellishments at our local Hobby Lobby.

Copics: Hair- E35,31,50/Overalls- B37, 34, 34/Shirt- YR 24,23,21/YG97,95,93/Skin- E11,00,000,R20/Bag-E47,44-40/Rake-E18,15,13/C9,7,5,3,1/Shoes- E29,27,25.

    I really love this adorable card! I also really enjoy the pictures of the gorgeous trees and changing leaves. I shared some on my blog this past week as well, but mine are pictures of trees that I don’t see any more. I grew up in MN but now live in Las Vegas, so I really miss the changing leaves and this lovely time of year. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous pics and for playing along in out challenge with your amazing card. I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful art and hope you’ll join us again very soon,
