Tilda Sweeping

The leaves are falling at my house and need to be raked. I wish this little angel Tilda would come take care of mine. With at least 7 big trees and 4 apple trees plus several small smaller ones there is a huge amount of leaves to take care of and now that the kids are gone that leaves (pun intended) me with all the work. I'd rather stamp. 
I made this card from a paper bag. The Magnolicious Highlites blog challenged us to make a fall card using a paper bag. I love this style so I just had to do another one. I just got the swirling leaves from Magnolia and had to use it. I thought what a perfect thing for Tilda to be sweeping at this time of the year - leaves. The dp is lemonade from basic grey. Tilda's dress is paper pieced and high lighted with copics.Tilda is popped up with foam tape.  The pile of leaves at the bottom is done with flower soft - the regular autumn and the fine citrus. The leaves at the top are some buttons I got at Target's see spot save section a while ago. Here is a picture of the middle of the card. 
I added some punched leaves to spruce it up. (had to use a tree word). This card is also for the Halloween challenge at stamping scrapping challenge central here.

Here is another card I made recently,
This little nelliphant is from whiff of joy. I used a scrap of paper that I had made criss crosses on and then cut it out with nestabilities and then punched holes and cut out another pink oval so the darker pink would show through the holes. The elephant is colored with copics. The flowers have fine flower soft. After the glue dried I added some glitter glue to the center. I tried to do it before the glue dried but the flower soft kept coming right off.
Hope you enjoy my creations today. I love reading any comments that you are kind enough to leave.

Yeah! So glad you picked up the challenge! I love how you created your paper bag to be "opened". Very cool! Your Tilda is darling and I love the flower soft leaves! The little elephant card is adorable. Super job on both!

Peggie, I love your card!!! She is so adorable and your style of card is great!! Love your coloring!! Our leaves aren't down yet, but I'm sure it's just a matter of time!!!! Thank goodness, my husband knows I'm just not an outdoorsy girl, so he'll probably just rake them himself!! LOL!!
