Kathy's Card
Nonni's Card

I do love Fall, so combined the Fall Colors challenge at Impression Obsession and Kathy's Pop-Up Line challenge. I loved Kathy's card  & the one Nonni did, so took a gulp & grabbed my brown permanent marker.  I don't draw, but figured even I could draw lines & then use a ruler to darken them.  It was actually fun! Also gave me a chance to use my Copics (R35, YR07, YG63, Y06) & I really like how they look on kraft cardstock.  
The IO stamp (C3537) is perfect for Fall cards & I mounted it with foam tape.  My sweet friend, Cat, gave me the stick pins & I won the Dew Drops at Pixies Snippets Playground. Glad to have a Thanksgiving card ready to mail. Hope my Carmel Cosmos counts as popcorn--so yummy! Thanks for coming by--I always appreciate it.

Love it!
You are right about knowing places where movie was filmed, I remember when we lived in NYC, on our way to church one morning, we saw some cars and taxi cabs were tossed and turned, and then realized much later that they were filming "I am legend" and those were the movie scene.

I am going to have to check out that techinque Greta. Your card is fabulously fallish. I will be hoping for cooler weather, heading to visit my Dad and it will be HOT. Glad those pins came in handy. Hugs my friend.

I am so impressed with this card! You did a fantastic job with your lines. You would never know this wasn't a cover plate used. The colors blended beautifully. Good for you.

That's a great technique and I really like the colours you have used too Greta. What a lovely sentiment. That was always one of my favourite Harvest time hymns. Barbxx

Oh, how beautiful, Greta! I love the autumn color palette with all those great angles and your sentiment is perfect! Love the addition of the stick pins, too!

Did you say, "caramel'? You've definitely sparked a craving...where's a box of Cracker Jack when you need it? Your autumn-palette card is gorgeous! No wait...make that GORGEOUS!
