It's Fall Y'all!

Yes, indeed it is the fall season. The leaves are almost totally off our trees now and the temps keep dropping little by little. I am still downloading pictures from my scrapbook retreat weekend. They will be here soon.

Whimsie Doodles is hosting a challenge this week that is all about fall. I have to admit this is my first entry to any of their challenges- [gasp!].
However, I could not pass it up when I saw a free digi announcement on their Facebook page last week for this adorable image. This little boy is about the cutest thing ever.
I printed and colored him with copic markers. I didn't intend to cut him out, but when coloring some grey around the edge went wrong, I had to come up with a solution. I think this option turned out pretty good. I bent the tops of the rake forward to look like the curved ends of a real rake.

I think this goes nicely with one of the sentiments from my Autumn Splendor stamp set as well.

Now if you missed out on the free download of this image, you can still pick it up in the Whimsie Doodles store. How could anyone resist!

Here's how I did it...
A2 card base in brown card stock
Pattern paper from American Crafts Pumpkin Patch 6x6 paper pack
All other paper form my scrap box
Leaves cut using My Creative Time Piles of Smiles stamp and Die set
Sentiment from BugBites Autumn Splendor stamp set
Crinkle Ribbon from my stash
