Fall Greetings, and Fall Colors....

Greetings my blogging friends, Ohhhh how nice it is to FINALLY be able to just click, and start typing a post.  My internet woes are finally over... (I'm almost afraid to be so confident)....  a total of 21 days, struggling with connections, and trying to connect through my cell phone.... WOW .... Stress was high, I can tell you that much.... 

So it's SO NICE to be able to just pop on here and get my post up without any issues....  Ahhhhhh, I love it....  I will never ever take having the internet forgranted again.   After several phone calls, and many visits from technicians, FINALLY the problem has been solved. 

Alright, enough about all of that....  I have a very Fall Festive card to share with you today.  This months challenge over at Elisabeth Bells World is to use 3 or more Fall colors from a photo to inspire you....

I have to say that my card is really not the greatest...  My mo'jo was just not with me over these last few weeks while I was dealing with the stress of internet issues...  BUT... I did manage to get something put together.... 

I used an absolutely ADORABLE stamp from Belles 'n Whistles, called "Scarecrow and Little Wizard"  This actually was an image that I colored a while ago.  Probably last year, I can't remember, but since it was colored, I figured I would use it....  That's the way to go when you're mo'jo is on vacation.  Ha Ha... 



For the background papers, I actually took strips of paper, and sort of layered them around in a spiral fashion.  So yes, those are all seperate papers....  I don't know WHAT I was thinking, but it didn't turn out quite like I had hoped, but regardless, it's pretty colorful, right?  LOL

I traced some big leaves on green cardstock, and used some gold embossing powder and heated it...  Other than that, nothing really spectacular here....  However, tomorrow there is a brand new challenge over at the Belles 'n Whistles Challenge Blog, and wait until you see what I've made for that...  Mo'jo has returned...  =)

I truly hope that you'll stop over and check out that challenge, as well as this months Elisabeth Bells World "Fall Color" challenge.  All you need to do is use ANY Elisabeth Bell stamp or digi and you can play along.  You could also combine challenges, and right now Elphine House Australia's Challenge is to use ANY Elisabeth Bell Stamp, and use your scraps....  Why not go and check out all three challenges, and then play all three...
