Happy Fall ~The Cutting Cafe~

Happy Fall

Good morning everybody! I don't know about you all, well I could go ahead and guess y'all feel the way that I do...its the end of September? What! Does that mean the holidays are here? (I certainly hope so cause I have already been sneaking Halloween stuff out around my house! LOL) 

I am sharing today a post for The Cutting Cafe. Today set Welcome Fall has so much to offer...sentiments, imagery. Its really a great go-to for Fall! I put together a few of the sentiments from the set using my photo editing software and printed on Kraft card stock. Then I cut a few of the other images  separately. I got this pretty little plant from my sister Kerri for my birthday and I wanted to dress it up a bit. 

I fussy cut and popped the pumpkin and acorn's and watercolored them using Distress Inks. I love that soft effect and you'll see me do that A LOT with The Cutting Cafe images.

I did a bit of inking of the edges and just a bit of doodling with a gold metallic pen. This really was a simple way to really dress up a rather plane plant...it must be cute because everyone that's come into my house has mentioned it, not the plant...but the tag! =) LOL!

Don't forget to visit the rest of the ladies as well....lots of Fall inspiration I am sure! Take care!
