My good friend Carla is hosting her first Dare to Get Dirty challenge this month, and though I am sorry to say, I do not have any time to really get into the nitty gritty of trying to get all these challenges completed, I thought I'd at least try Carla's challenge.
These Dare to Get Dirty Challenges are created for fan club members to participate in, and we are not allowed to divulge the nuts and bolts of the challenge requirements, but I also checked out some of the other SCS challenges currently running to see if they would tweak my creative mojo.
An Inspiration Challenge orange t-shirt with leaves reminded me that I have a whole slew of October family birthdays that include sons, nephews, sister-in-laws, children and SCS friends. I thought I'd make a card with a fall theme that would help my huge October card needs. A fall theme will also work for the Alphabet Challenge, Letter P = Persimmon Orange and Pumpkin Orange.
My card idea will work for one of my sister-in-law cards or one of my female friends, but I think I might just earmark it for one of my good friends. I thought I would take a walk down nostalgia lane and color the little girl image I chose with woodless-colored pencils. The image is a CC Designs fall digital image of a little girl pulling a wagon filled with a delightful fall pumpkin. I've had this digital image in my stash for a number of years.
My finished little girl with her rosy cheeks is ready to deliver her little red wagon loaded with her happy birthday pumpkin to my dear friend. Now, I can put a check mark by my friend's name to show that her card is finished. Take a peek at her finished birthday card inside and out.
