Cooking Up a Bit of Autumn at Catered Crop

"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant." - Robert Lewis Stevenson

At the Catered Crop challenge, the results are in and the very talented Cheryl Gorka had two entries... both of which were chosen for our recipe challenge inspiration for this week. Cheryl celebrated both Fall and Winter and used these ingredients in her cards.
  • Stamps: girls, banners, farmer, crow
  • Colors: pink/burgundy, green; jewel tone fall colors
  • Theme: Christmas or Fall
  • Inks:  Distress Ink, markers
  • Papers:  stripes and polka dots (in the green paper that you can hardly see), kraft
  • Tools:  sewing machine, die cuts (for the sunflower), circle punch
  • Embellishments:  Fun Flock, seam binding, gemstones, spray/glimmer mists, glitter jingle bells, lace, buttons, burlap, twine, and cord
From the list of Cheryl's ingredients, the items in red are the ingredients that I chose to use from her creations to make this card for Autumn.... my favorite season!

I recently found the sunflower flower tutorial that Linda Coughlin, The Funkie Junkie, created and shared with us. I've always been in awe of her creativity from when we were on a design team together. She does such great work. Being in the sunflower state of Kansas, I had to try my hand at making this adorable embellishment. I see a lot of potential for this flower.

    Peggy, I love the autumn and the fall colors it brings, it is just so pretty and your sunflower is just gorgeous. You also taught me something new today. Sunflowers are my all time favorite flower in the world and I never knew that Kansas was the sunflower state.
