Sneaky Peeky!

Sweet 'n Sassy is hosting a blog hop this weekend! It started on Wednesday and runs through the weekend! You NEED to start at the Sweet 'n Sassy blog and check out all the gals' creations! They are sooooo good! I think I've mentioned that fall is my favorite time of the year, so when Korin showed us these samples a few months ago, I was super excited! I colored this guy in with my Copics and cut him out. I inked over him with Tim Holtz, Aged Paper ink to dirty up his clothes a bit. A scarecrow shouldn't have bright clean clothes for pete's sake! They sit outside all day scaring crows away! LOL! I also added some texture to his overalls by taking a rag and wetting it down with blending solution. I dabbed his overalls and got this cool effect! (Click on the picture if you want to see it up close) The paper is SU! The blue paper was just laying on my desk....along with the other million scraps! So I am not sure who's paper it is! I also added a few felt leaves and twine to finish it off. Check out Christi and Faith's blogs. They are today's hosts!

So what is everyone up to this weekend? We are going to Michigan for a few days. This means no scrapping, blogging, or stamping.....BOO HOO! I will do a few pre posts for the blog hop though! That's ok though....I think I need to reconnect with my family and get my butt off the computer and out of my scrap room! Pretty soon, I will be like that guy....what's his name? Howard Hughes? Didn't he lock himself in his room and pee in jars? He couldn't leave because of some phobia? Well, pretty soon my family is going to send a search party in my room.....I'm in there a lot! (Don't worry though....I haven't resorted to peeing in jars just yet! LOL)

Check back for some more sneak peeks tomorrow and Sunday!
Have a WONDERFUL weekend!!!!

Chele, this is really nice. It's kinda refreshing to see a Fall card with something other than the traditional pumpkins and leaves. Hope you have a nice weekend and good luck staying out of your stamp room!
