Who's ready for a release?

Oh yeah, it's release week baby!  Fall is in the air (well not really, not in Idaho at least, it's hotter than heck and totally still summer) and it's my favorite season.  I love fall because I get to enjoy the cool mornings and the warm afternoons, I get to drink coffee all day (yeah I know, I do that anyways, hush) and I have a birthday in the fall, and i get to start getting ready for Christmas!  All good things!

This release has all the good stuff about fall and you'll see over the next few days that it's all just too cute!  Here's the very first set... ready?????

Aptly named, this set is called "Happy Fall Y'all" and features a sweet little girl and all of her favorite fall things.

To make this card I started with some distress inks and a dampened sponge. I swirled the sponge on the paper after dabbing it in the ink to make that gradient background.  After letting it dry I used the pumpkin stamp from the set and stamped it all over to make the background.  I used the same sponge to add a little bit of ink to the wooden leaves as well. then I distressed the edges of the paper and glued them all in place. It was quite simple and lots of fun to make. 

Well, that's it for day one, I hope that you love this set, I'll catch ya back here tomorrow for some more release week goodness!! Don't forget to hop around to all the the DT and GDT blogs all week because one lucky commenter will receive a sweet prize at the release party on Facebook. Tootles!
