TSG174: Fall Is Right On Time!

Monday, September 24, 2012

Howdy peeps! 

Guess what I did on Saturday night?? I went to a Toby Keith concert! And it was awesome! My friend won tickets and invited me to tag along with her. It was so much fun! As well as seeing Toby, Brantley Gilbert, and Thomas Rhett, we got to see some pretty crazy fans do some pretty crazy stuff! Country fans sure know how to tailgate! lol I'll spare you the details, but I'm sure you can imagine the scene! lol

After rocking out into the wee hours of the night, I still managed to spend a few hours in my craft room coloring in this cute little image for this week's There She Goes challenge.

It's a sketch challenge and you can check it out over at the TSG's blog, but let share some deets with you before you head over there!

If you live in New England, then you know it's been hard to miss the fact that Fall is officially here! The leaves are falling, the mornings are colder and the apple picking season has started. So, even though I'm not quite ready to say goodbye to Summer, I decided to wet my feet a little and make a fall card. This cute little girl is from the Pumpkins On The Vine set - adorable isn't she?? I colored her with my SU reinkers and Distress Inks. The background was made using Rosies Roadshow Cloud Template and SU's Soft Sky ink. The 'dirt' was done with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The sentiment comes as one stamp, so I covered half of it with a Post It note and inked the first half. Then I masked off the other half and stamped it out so I could cut them out as two separate sentiments. It's finished size is 5.5" x 5.5".

So, do you think you're up for this sketch challenge??
