This is Aurora Turkey - the October Freebie from The East Wind. I can't tell you how generous Kyra is!! She is the most wonderful and generous artist out there! Just look at this amazing image!

Today we are on Challenge #229 - Patchwork (make a patchwork pattern) at Meljen's Designs. Hmmm...  patchwork LOL  When I think of patchwork I think of squares so that is what I did. I used different fall papers to make the patchwork pattern. Here is what I came up with:

I used Hot Apple Pie which you can find at the Meljen's Shop. I love this image.. apples just make me think fall! And a yummy Apple Pie.. Mmmm..with a scoop of vanilla ice cream LOL Yum!!!  So, I pulled out my scraps from the last years fall papers and I used them to make my patchwork design. I stitched around each of the squares.

Kung Fu Henry

Good morning everyone :)  I hope everyone had a fabulous Monday! It was a Monday! LOL  Ughhh! It was fairly uneventful I guess. It was a beautiful day though and the last place I wanted to be was stuck in an office! Beautiful ride to work in the morning though :)  Even a nice ride home! And now.. I hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday! At least it isn't Monday! LOL!!!

I'm posting a new card I created with a Whiff of Joy image - Kung Fu Henry.

So, here he is! Adorable! I colored him with my Copic Markers. I added the twine and gem and dd a bit of distressing. The black paper is embossed. I was going to add a sentiment "HiYa!" LOL But I talked myself out of it. So, he does not come with a sentiment. I decorated the inside top and bottom. This is a small 3x3 card. There is no decoupage on him either! I know SHOCKING! LOL
