Delightful Challenges

** Please scroll down for the MTME Pretty Patterns post **

Hi!  Thanks for coming back for the Delightful Challenges post.  This card made me really long for Fall.  I don't miss a lot about living in West Virginia, but one thing I really miss is Fall.  The colors are blazing and gorgeous and rich!  The crispness in the air.  The chilly nights spent cuddling under a blanket with a nice cup of hot tea and a good book.  *sigh*  I really miss that.

So this week at Delightful Challenges we're loving Fall Days.

Here's my card....

What a cutie!  My favorite digi images in the Digital Delights by Louby Loo are the Lara Ladybug, Bumblebee Larry and the other characters with the signature sweet face that Wendy gives these little sweeties.  This is Pumpkin Lara and I love her.

I did create a pretty simple card using a fabulous sketch by Unscripted Sketches.  I really liked this sketch because I was able to showcase some great patterns from the Simply Fall digi paper pack.

Enjoy your day and we'll see you over at the Delightful Challenges blog.

Oh, that image is sweet! Love the fall dp's. We've got fall weather here right now, but I'm sure after the hurricane is over, we'll go back to super hot days! :( It's so nice to be able to rock on the front porch with a book without sweating and sticking to the chair!!!)

Lara is just the sweetest wee thing going! Your coloring/shading is amazing! I love the woodgrain background, really works well with the theme of your card! Thanks so much for choosing to play along with our sketch this week at Unscripted Sketches! Happy crafting :)
