Squirrely Fall Cards for the First Day of Fall

I was thinking this morning about the new Close To My Heart color called Paprika. Yes, it is a beautiful burnt orange, and I love it – right now. How fickle is the love of color, though, because I know as soon as I start “feeling Christmassy”, I’ll turn my back on Paprika for some gorgeous red and green combinations. However, for today I have fall, and today I have a crush on fall colors including Paprika.

Let’s enjoy the crush.

On Saturday’s LIVE from my MESK! (my messy desk), I showed how to make three cute little cards from a 12″ x 12″ piece of white card stock plus some stamps and a few scraps. As they say all over social media, “check it out”.

Live from my MESK it's Saturday Morning!

Making a few cards and getting distracted.

So, you know about my color crush, but I have a stamp crush, too, on this little squirrel on my hand drawn branch – yes, you can draw a branch!
I like how this simple design works, for more ideas to use this design, visit Freshly Made Sketches Challenge Blog.
