I had so much fun making my card! I used the scarecrow image from the Thanksgiving collection, you can buy him here. I stamped him out twice and coloured him with Copics. I cut round Mr Scarecrow and glued him over the background image, with yellow embroidery floss glued under him where the straw is escaping from him. The bird is stealing some more straw from his innards. The image is layered onto Kraft paper and then stitched onto a dark brown card mat. There's a very pretty autumn DP behind this, stitched again (Sorry don't know whose DP it is) and then the main DP is from a Bearly Mine Designs cd, with a very wide orange ribbon added, which came from a box of chocolates. Pretty ribbon, but not as good as the choccies were ;).

Close up of "straw":


  1. Brilliant! Love the straw Anne!

  2. Anne this is OUtstanding. Love the stray that you have added to your image. Super creative. It is fun having you with us.

  3. Cool straw.
    do you have any idea how dangerous your blog is to a challenge junkie.
    I just hit the motherload.

  4. Such a great image and a wonderful card!

  5. That straw is such a great idea!

  6. I did join the SNR but I'm not too sure of my way around there. I'll drop in when I have some time and I love S2g stamps and always hope to play those challenges.

  7. This is just fabulous! I love the image and the sentiment is beautiful! :)

    Hugs, Vanja

  8. Cute! The floss is pure genius!
