Deedee's September Digi of the Month


September rolled around really fast this year didn't it? It feels like summer just started a week ago and we're well on the way to Autumn! Today's card was done with Deedee's digis Fall Warm-up and this is her September digi of the month. Be sure to play along with Deedee's September challenge this month so you can get the October digi completely free! If you didn't play along last month and didn't already receive this digi set, you can score it for a reduced price as long as the challenge is active. Check the details here.

I used the pre-colored digi image of this chubby chipmunk, and repeated the cup of cider image for a horizontal border. The papers are all from Bo Bunny and I used assorted snippets of card stock in autumn colors to make the leaves and acorns with an EK border punch. I love the fonts on this great sentiment which is included in the set. 


I'm also entering this card into the Snippets Playground #140 with all those tiny snippets I used to make the leaves and acorns.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Carol

Oh, how cute is this, Carol! I love the chipmunk but I think he has had a little too much of that warm cider...just look at those cheeks. Ha
I like your border of cider cups. It's a super, autumn creation.

You have surrounded this little darling chipmunk with some outstanding papers, super nice sentiment and your array of colorful leaves and nuts. I'm sorry to say it doesn't feel like fall here today - heading up to 87 degrees and high humidity. Great day to stay indoors. Wishing you a wonderful day.

Cute idea to use the cider for that border! I've never even though of doing something like that - not that I'd know how to do it anyway! LOL!
Love your card Carol. All the tiny leaves are just perfect.

I love fall! All 2 weeks of it. It is nowhere in sight here though. I love your card with all the leaves and acorns punched out, and of course the yummy colors. Speaking of yummy, can that chipmunk spare a sip of cider?!

Well blogger isn't playing nice, so I'm going to try leaving a comment again. lol I love this cute autumn card Carol! This little chipmunk is too cute with this chubby cheeks and nice warm drink. He sure is dapper looking. Love the fun papers you used-such great autumn colors. Love the sentiment and love the border you made with the drink. The leaves scattered around gives the feel of the leaves falling. Great autumn card! Not sure where this summer went but it sure did fly by!! Today was nice and hot and humid, a perfect day by the pool and I did just that with 2 of my granddaughter and DIL. I hope Sept gives us more of these days before old man autumn comes. Hugs, Brenda
