It's That Time of Year Again

All around town I have been seeing pumpkin patches filled with hay bales, scarecrows and pumpkins.  This is the time of year when our little horse-town starts to look bright and colorful, such a change from the dry, brown Summer.  Today I have made a card that looks a lot like the pumpkin patches I have been seeing.


I used two of my new Serendipity Stamps to make this card, Scarecrow and It's That Time of Year.  I paper pieced the shirt with some gingham paper and colored the rest.  The fence is a die from My Favorite Things.  To make my little hay stalks, I cut up some raffia and tied it with brown twine.  I added some pumpkin stickers and a cloud in the sky to create a cute Fall scene.  Serendipity Stamps has lots of great stamps, something for every season.  Here's a link to the store.

I keep retyping because I am not sure how to get across how much I love this card. Love the scarecrow, the fence, the hay all of it is just sooo….. darn cute!
I bought a SS stamp that I plan on paper piecing, its one I would never color. Just came today.

Love this card Cathy, that scarecrow is fantastic.

What a great fall scene you have made. It is so carefully thought out--stickers, stamps, dies, paperpiecing, raffia--you really used everything and made it look great.

This is fabulous Cathy! I love your hay bales, and the fun scarecrow, a fabulous little scene you created along with the die cut picket fence!

I love that scarecrow! and the fact that you used the real "hay" is so cool! I love the die cut window, too!
