Dream BIG!!

Hi, It's Terri Johnson. Happy Thursday! The skies here are overcast and it seems like fall is determined to visit soon despite my best efforts to stay in denial. School is starting and life is rolling forward. Even though I am sad to see summer come to a close I love the magic of fall. I love the leaves, pumpkins, holidays, and apple pie. I love breaking out my sweaters and jackets...and I LOVE the new fall release stamps from Lawn Fawn!

When my stamps arrived in the mail, I just had to carve out time this week to play with them. I couldn't decide wether to play with the beautiful sunflowers in Our Friendship Grows, or the adorable deer in Into the I combined them into one. I mean sweet are these stamps?

I'm so in love with this little guy. I had to put some rosy cheeks on him..or her, and of course some white little dots on his backside. I put dimensional adhesive behind his back and double adhesive behind his head so he stood out in front of the flowers.  Eeek! The sunflowers were just begging for some glittery, shimmery fun, so what's a girl to do? 

I colored the flowers and the deer with Copic Markers and used the Fiskars Grass Punch for the strip at the bottom. The clouds are from Blue Skies and the sentiment uses Riley's ABC's and Critters Ever After. I used the little trick from Nicole Magouirk this week about just coloring the word(s) you want to use on a stamp with a Black Soot Distress Marker. Brilliant!

Perfect Timing to enter this card in two challenges. First the Lawnscaping challenge is doing a "Favorite Things" Challenge which you can check out here. Also, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog is themed, "Animal Antics". Check that one out here, there's plenty of time to enter!

Have a wonderful week, and may it be sunny in your corner of the world!

Happy Stamping!
