Hanging on to summer

This is my DT card for http://www.michelleperkettstudio.blogspot.com/ The challenge this week is Hanging on to summer. The image is called Olive. Isn't she a cutie? I love her belly! And yes she is a Michelle Perkett image. You can get it Olive or any of Michelle's super cute images by clicking on the link in my left side bar.

DP is Tim Holtz, Vintage Shabby and DCWV linen closet. The banner is from a DP that I cut out. Pearls are Recollections, flowers and brads are from my stash. I colored Olive with Copics and I also used stickles on her hat and pail.

I am also entering this in:

Bliss - This is the first of the cards that I will be teaching the ladies at my church. We did a series on penny pincing and we will continue with that theme in making our own Christmas cards on a budget. The most expensive thing on the card is the stamp that I got for 60 cents (I had a 40% off coupon) at Michael's last year. The DP I got at Tuesday Morning 25 sheets for $2.99. The brads I got at Hobby Lobby using a 40% off coupon I think they were $2.99 to start with, and the red bling on the nose I got at JoAnn's again useing a 40% off coupon. The bling started at $3.99. The cardstock is 50% off at Hobby Lobby this week making my total cost

Autumn Corn

Autumn Corn - DP is from a seasonal block that I picked up a long time ago. The ribbon and brads are from my stash. The brad in the center of the bow is from the seasonal area at Hobby Lobby, I picked these up last year after Thanksgiving when they were really cheap. The images are PS. I embossed them then painted them with beach. I had not tried the process before, but it was very easy to do.
