Gently Fallin' Tractor

 My son, Tim, is in Boy Scouts and had to organize an event.  He called his godfather, Tom, and ask if he would give the scouts a hay ride to the local corn maze.  Tom, of course, agreed wholeheartedly.  The scouts had a great time!  Tim asked me to make a thank you card for Tom and his son Tyler, who helped his dad out when Tom had to leave, for all the scouts to sign.  Here it is...

Cardstock: Kraft, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler all by Stampin' Up.
Stamps: Tractor by Hero Arts; "Gently Fallin' Leaves" by Stampin' Up and "Queen Anne's Lace & Leaves" by Rubber Stamp Tapestry; and a "Thank You" stamp by Stampin' Up
Ink: Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint Distressed Inks by Tim Holtz; and Memento's Toffee Crunch and Tuxedo Black
Copic Markers: R46, C8 and C5
Accessories: Ribbon by Gina K; and the square brads by a company that is closed.

Fall Leaves from MDS2

I've decided I would try to out the Stampin' Up "My Digital Studio 2" (which you can download for free for 30 days) and publish a card for the first time.  I made a 6x6 card using Always Artichoke and very vanilla cardstock.  I "stamped" the leaves in various colors and sizes in Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Always Artichoke inks.  The stamp is from the "Holiday Blitz" collection.   I "stamped"  thank you in Pumpkin Pie ink and that sentiment is from the "Enjoy Every Moment" collection.  The grosgrain ribbon is Always Artichoke and the brads are Always Artichoke, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red.  I also rounded the corners on the very vanilla cardstock.  Not bad for a digitally produced card.   Enjoy your Sunday and the extra hour we gained over night.
