My Favorite Artist

I made this card using a hand drawn image from my favorite artist...my daughter Katie. :) She decided last night that she would draw something for me to use on a card! Sweet! So she came up with this guy who I think is totally cute!
I realize that my Copic collection is lacking because I didn't feel like I had good, fall colors to use. I ran the rusty paper through my Cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder. The Happy Halloween stamp is from my friend Tina...she sent it to me with some blog candy I won from her! Thanks Tina!! And you'll notice, I still have some buttons from that super useful pack I bought awhile back!
This card is for the challenge this week at Cardmakers which is to use leaf images on your card and Die Cuts R Us Challenge which is to make a Halloween card with a stamp.

  7. Your daughter totally rocks! What a great image and I love how you made such a beautiful card out of it!

  8. Oh My gosh Lori...You know you can NEVER give this away! It needs to be framed or scrapbooked. Heck, she needs to make this into a DigitStamp...I would defintely buy it for sure! Can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
    PS....you know I think I need the bow easy for SURE! It would make my things look alot better!

  9. Great card! I'm glad you like the stamps.

  10. Nice job to both you and Katie! She's a natural! Great card to welcome autumn!

  11. Oh Lori what an adorable card. And how sweet that Katie helped you out. Beautiful image, I would have thought it was a stamp or digi image if you hadn't told us:) You did a fab job coloring the little scarecrow also! Thanks so much for joining us at DCRU!
