Fall Cards

Fall is upon us. Mornings are cool, afternoons are warm, and some leaves are turning red, yellow, and orange. So today's cards are in honor of all things fall. I call them my ThanksOween cards.

Starting with Kraft base. 3 banners from my scraps. The little pumpkin on the Tim Holtz tag is an old Inkadinadoo and tied on with white twine. The top card has a Jack-o-Lantern (no label) with Newton from Newton's Nook lurking on top. This is the Newton from the birthday set peeking out of a bag. I colored and then fussy cut just the cat. I cut a green strip with grass scissors, stained it a little brown. Sentiment is also Newton's Nook.
The bottom card is the same with Newton lurking in the grass. Is he stalking stalking something or just taking a nap? I made the pumpkin with 3 punched ovals, highlighted with a darker orange ink, a cut out stem, and attached with some raffia ribbon. Sentiment is The Angel Company stamped in SU chocolate chip.
I think the difference in pictures is that the Halloween one, I used auto fix and the other I played around with light and contrast. Not liking the auto fix so much.
