CPS and more FALL photos

First up, remember the Pink Persimmon sketch challenge, you can win prizes!
Next, the sponsor for Card Postioning Systems blog this week is My Favorite Things stamps. I picked this cute Santa image to play with. I love this BoBunny patterned paper for the background on the card.
I wanted the red on the Santa suit to be a very strong red so I thought the best way to achieve that was to stamp it on red patterned paper and then to cut that out. I stamped it in white and embossed it with white embossing powder for a fun look. I used 3-D Fashion paint by Tulip for his furry cuffs and his beard.
And, a couple more fall photos from our trip.
This was on the beach around Florence. I loved the orange leaf against the black rocks.
These leaves had fallen into a little river.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
