A Nap for Autumn

Hello friends!

Are you familiar with Sassy Cheryl's digital images?  

I first discovered Cheryl's images while designing at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and fell in love with her unique designs. She features such a great variety of characters in her designs.

I recently went shopping at Sassy Cheryl's (She even has a bargain bin) and picked up some new images. I printed this cutie out the other day and colored her with distress inks and spectrum noir markers. You can find "Nature Nap Girl" here for only 50 cents...can you believe that?  

I am entering my card at Sassy Cheryl's challenge blog where the theme this week is Fall  
and at The Sweet Stop where I found this great sketch that inspired me.  

This image reminds me of what I love about Autumn...the ability to enjoy sitting outside in the cooler temperatures and maybe even taking a cat nap myself, clear blue skies and the last of summer flowers. I love the peaceful feel to Nature Nap Girl.

Thanks for the visit and I hope you will check out both of these great sites.

Card details:
Paper: GinaKDesigns chocolate brown, Stampin' Up baja breeze, SU Autumn Meadows design paper (retired)
Ink: Distress inks and Spectrum Noir
Other: Spellbinders circle and scallop rectangle dies, Martha Stewart oak leaf punch, Stampin Up linen thread and square punch, sentiment from SU Noteworthy set, Papertrey Ink buttons

Hi Patti, I'm a little overdue with this message, but I just wanted to say thank you for your sweet comment you left on my blog (Stuck on Stampin) a few weeks ago in regards to my 12 Days of Christmas tutorials. It truly made my day!

Hope you have a blessed week!
