Feeling The Fall at The East Wind.

Good morning everyone! Can you believe the weekend is over??  UGghhhh  .. It goes by way too quickly!! Time for work again *cry* I would love a nice long vacation! LOL  What did you guys do this weekend?  Kevin and I rode the bikes down to see my sister in Atlanta Friday evening. She had to have surgery on her shoulder/arm to repair a break that she has had for 11 months and it never healed. She kept telling the doctor something wasn't right; she finally went and got a second opinion and that is how the surgery came about. Other than that.. we watched motorsports. We had the MotoGP motorcycle race yesterday morning and then we watched the 1st Aussie V8 Enduro race this year and then Nascar. Full day of motorsports LOL That was it! Okay.. enough of me :)

We are on our mid month challenge at The East Wind. Our theme for Challenge #15 is Feel The Fall. I can't wait until Fall and Winter! I LOVE the colder weather.. I hate the heat! LOL  So here is what I came up for this challenge:

I used Lucy Loo Morning Coffee which you can find at The East Wind Shop. Okay... I know the eyes are really distracting LOL  They are such a light green. I just LOVE green eyes! And hey.. they match the paper and the stitching LOL!!  When I chose Lucy Loo Morning Coffee I was just thinking what a more perfect way to show fall than to be sipping some coffee or hot chocolate! Not to mention I LOVE Lucy Loo LOL!!  The card cut was done with the Cameo.. I LOVED this card with the fall leaves edge. The papers are all scraps from my Fall papers last year. The sentiment is stamped and the label was also cut from the Cameo. I added the two black pearls on the sides. I used several different stamps for this one. I used the little acorn and the coffee beans along with that sentiment.I inked all around her with brown and I distressed the edges of the paper. I did add the stitching around the edge with a light green thread to match the green in the paper.. and her eyes of course! LOL She is all colored up with my Copic markers and decoupaged a bit. I popped her legs, that front arm and coffee mug and her head. I try to get photos of my decoupage.. sometimes it just doesn't turn out that great. I used the same papers on the inside and inked the top paper like I did around Lucy Loo. I added the bean stamp on the inside as well to get it all matching! And I think that is it!

Copic Markers Used:
  • Skin: E000, E00, E02, E11, E13
  • Pants, Head Band, Bow: YR00, YR02, YR04, YR07, YR09, E18
  • Uggs: E95, E97, E99
  • Hair: E41, E43, E33, E25, E27
  • Eyes: YG01, YG05, YG09
  • Coffee/Hot Chocolate: E71, E74, E79, E40, E41, E42
  • Steam: E40, E41, E42
  • Shirt and Sock:C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9
  • Lips: R20, R22, R24
