Mister Scarecrow


Let me introduce you to my Mister Scarecrow from Market Street Stamps.  He is an adorable straw man from the Autumn Greetings stamp set and I just love him to bits.  Plus, I'm in the mood for fall... I've told you how much I love all things pumpkin, Thanksgiving, and sweater-weather, right??


I colored Mister Scarecrow's face and straw with Copics but paper-pieced his outfit.  The paper-piecing was a bit tedious but I just love it - something about concentrating on the detailed cutting that relaxes me.  I stamped a little "Happy Fall" sign for him to hold and thought it was a perfect touch.  I'll be adding this to the Market Street Stamps Flickr gallery as an entry to their monthly Cream of the Crop contest... because who doesn't love the chance at a great prize?

Just a note that I'm in love with pumpkin orange paired with aqua.  You might have heard the BIG news that a card I made is featured on the cover of November's CARDS magazine.  Seriously??!  Pinch me!  You can get a little sneak peek on my sidebar... pumpkin orange and aqua.  It works for me. ;)
