Cozy Cottage...

I have a wonderful Prairie Fairy image to share today. This lighthouse/cottage is part of the nautical line which was recently released. I really love all these images, they are such a nice variety to the cutesy stamps I normally work with and I love being able to change my style. I thought this would also make a great "new home" card, so I added the sentiment which is available at Whimsy Stamps and a key charm. I tried to mimic the door shape in the background dp. This image is coloured with prismacolour pencils. I am entering these challenges.... Paper Playtime - use any type of water, Stamptacular Sunday - fall colors, Stamp Something - fall colors, Simon says - photo inspiration.

Here is a picture of the leaves beginning to change and fall around here, I just love the red hues. This was on Friday and today there are no leaves left on the trees!

Oh Lori.....such a great creation with that fab house...good idea to put that windowform behind it....your colouring is so fab!...great fall picture....fall in Canada is fallen down quicker than the sun is shining and there are still enough leaves on the trees!

Oh, wow, Lori. I'm just getting a chance to scroll back through my Google Reader for the week and saw this awesome piece of work. One of my favorite images and what an amazing card you have made with it - totally drool worthy! Makes me want to print it up and use it again!

Have a great weekend.
