Ah! The Crisp Air of Autumn!

This week we were to use the rich hues of Autumn to inspire us in our designs. They didn't specify colors, because Autumn colors are different in different parts of the world -- we were to use whatever colors we think of when you hear the word "Autumn" or "Fall"! And for our image we will be using this cute set of FLOWERS:


It really isn't feeling much like fall here in Maryland, yet, with the hurricanes and tropical storms bringing tons of rain and the humidity that comes with it...but I do love fall and I'm SO looking forward to it! When I think of fall, I think of browns, reds, oranges, deep yellows, and even deep purple...and I love purple (Go Ravens!) For my card, I chose to use the colors Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun and Concord Crush.

When I first saw the flower images, I thought of those dancing flowers that were all the rage several years ago, so I printed out the images twice, coloring one set, and then cutting the centers from the other set and popping them up on the center of the flowers using pop-dots. I applied some googlie eyes (sorry- the glue won the battle...and WHY do those things not show up until I take a picture???) Anyway, I think it turned out cute. I hope you like it!!

Oh, and mark your calender for Friday, September 16th for the Hambo blog hop! The theme of the hop is "Sing Your Art Out"...I had SO much fun during their last customer inclusive hop that I jumped at the opportunity to play along again!! I hope that you stop by and hop with us- I know there will be some great inspiration from the Bacon Bits and their customers AND there will be PRIZES to win!! So, remember- Friday, September 16th!!
