Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge - Fall Treats!


Happy Sunday, bloggers! It's time for another super-fun Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge! The theme this week is Fall Treats. I love Fall...it is my favorite season! Pumpkins, hayrides, apple cider, haunted houses...I love it all :)
I had an idea for a card - an adorable puppy jumping into a pile of freshly-raked leaves...scattering them everywhere. I have so many Cricut carts, and couldn't find the image of the dog I had in my head. I settled for this one because he looks whimsical, but it isn't what I pictured :)

I cut the adorable pup from Doodlecharms at 1 1/2" and added googly eyes and a tongue. The leaves were cut from Stretch Your Imagination at 1/2" in red, orange and yellow DCWV glimmer paper. The tree is from Heritage, cut at 5" and embossed with the polka dots Cuttlebug embossing folder and then brushed with Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Ink. The rake is from Freshly Picked, cut at 2". I used Mod Podge to attach everything to the page. The background paper is from DCWV Harvest stack. The "Fall" stamp is from the K Andrew Designs FALL-O-WEEN stamp set!
"Whimsy is Essential" is from the Positive Thoughts set:
Aren't these awesome?! Click HERE to purchase your own set or to view all of her fabulous stamps for sale!
I am entering the card in the following challenges:

Whimsical Wednesday #24 - Fall Colors
My Craft Spot #26 - Fall Leaves
