Fall foliage

     It's two-fer Tuesday!  LOL  I'm behind in getting my projects posted so you get two Purple Onion Designs creations today.
     First up is Cinnamon Squirrel who is thankful for all his acorns.  I stamped the leaves and acorns (Autumn Fallings) several times and added them to the Hang in There tree branch.  One of the sentiments from the Thanksgiving Feast sentiment set finishes off the stamping.

     Next up is some loose watercoloring over images from the Doodle Foliage set.  I just used several Distress inks to add fall colors and LOTS of splatter.

     For those of you wondering, the benefit for my friend went very well this past weekend.  God blessed and on top of the money we were able to raise we got to know lots of her family who came over from New Orleans and Atlanta to help.  Amazing people and now people we can call friends.
     Have a blessed week!
