a fall scarecrow

Checking in with another Thanksgiving scarecrow.  I am really loving this CTMH Fall Favorites scarecrow. He is so happy! And believe me, with the weather we have been having I really need something Happy! It's raining yet again!! And it looks like rain all week. We get an occasional slightly warm, rain free day, and it seems like I always have so many other things to do that I can't get outside and get my garden stuff picked up, and pots put away, and flower gardens cleaned out. And I still have 4 packages of bulbs to get in the ground! Where is our 'Indian Summer"? It'll probably be nice this week cause I have to go serve for Jury Duty. Oh, well..............

Anyway, I made this card using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #56.  
The DP is also CTMH, and the cardstock is SU. I stamped the scarecrow in Memento Close to Cocoa and colored him with Copic markers. I punched a 3/4" circle in a scrap and used it as a mask to make the sun. I sponged SU Summer Sun in the circle opening. I sponged in the sky using Pebbles Iridescent chalks, then I cut the image out with Spellbinders curvy rectangles.The image was to big, so I put it back in the die and traced around the inside of the die with a pencil and cut it out with scissors.  I used an erasure and removed some of the chalk around the edges of the image panel, and mounted it on chocolate chip mat cut with the same die-just left a nice little edge around it. The sentiment is from SU Teeny Tiny Messages, stamped with Chocolate Chip ink and cut out with SU Word window punch, mounted on CTMH CS cut with SU oval punch. I covered the piece with Versa Mark and clear embossing powered and heat set. Ribbon is from Offray.

Now I am off to peel apples for the freezer and to make some more applesauce. Love homemade applesauce, especially warm on pancakes and waffles! YUMMMMM!
