The Great Outdoors

Good morning friends.  Here is my latest card (yeah, I made a CARD!) that I made for the challenge at Frilly and Funkie.  Our challenge this fortnight is The Great Outdoors - make something with an outdoors theme and include a quote about nature/outdoors.  I decided to use Artistic Outpost stamps again this week and went with a fall theme for my outdoors aspect.  I love the little boy image.  I don't know anything about it, but I aways think he's helping with the harvest so I like to use that stamp with fall cards.   All the images are from Artistic Outpost:  Boy - Bluebird, House/porch in background - Keeper and sentiment Flower Market.

I painted the tiny metal pieces with Vintaj patina - Rusted Hardware set - you know about my love of altering metals, right?  Couldn't resist - LOL!
I used the sketch from Mojo Monday.  I'm going to keep this post short because it's late on Tuesday night and I'm ready for my night's sleep!  I don't think there is anything mysterious about this card.  I'm listing the products used below and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to leave them here in the comments or email me direct.  I am always happy to share.

Be sure to stop by Frilly and Funkie to see what the designers over there have been up to.

These product used to make this card can be purchased at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

I LOVE this card. Of course I love everything you do. I think this would also work beautifully with a feminine direction, and I have just the person in mind. Thank you for sharing.

My favorite part is those text-stamped leaves... you're making me think of the great outdoors with those, for sure.

I would LOVE to have this card and hang it in my kitchen window facing outwards. Not only would I draw inspiration from it, but I'd be hoping that Mother Nature would get the hint!!!! I'm READY!!

Gorgeous card Linda. Hoping you're staying afloat with everything. :)
