Lend A Helping Hand

Fall is the best time for lending a hand because there is so much to be done in order to prepare for old man winter.  {burr & not quite ready for winter} 

This card is a fun “out of the box” whimsical fall scene.  The Sassy Cheryl’s fireman image was used to help blow leaves instead of squirting water to put out fires.  Sassy Cheryl is having a sale right now and it’s a doozy: Buy 2 get 1 FREE!  You can find her adorable out of this world images at:


The stone wall and tree branch are stamped images from Stamps By Judith and Heather. 

The blue birds and owl are stamped images colored with COPIC Markers and hand cut. 

Each leaf was colored and hand cut using fine detail scissors and adhered to the card base with small crinkles to give the leaves a more realistic look.

The background color was created using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and foam applicator.

Hope this card inspires you to make a difference in the life of someone this week.
