Autumn Leaves -- Fun Friday with YNS

If you are looking for my BLOG CANDY post, please CLICK HERE.

Hi Everyone!!
Happy Friday to you!!!
This is going to be something new and fun!!
I'm posting for YNS on Fridays for the Fun Friday YNS Challenge!!
For the October challenge, you can use either the sketch or the inspiration pic.

Here is my card featuring a YNS digi called, "Autumn Leaves" by Omnia Designs.

I just loved this sweet image and I took my time coloring it up!!
The little critters are so precious and I just love their expressions!!!
Last night when I was finishing up this image, my older daughter told me that she didn't feel that a dog should have spots like this, but my younger daughter had the perfect explanation... and she said, "he was playing in the mud!" ~~ see, so there you have it!!  :) :)

Here's this month's sketch and inspiration pic.
You can use one of them or both!!

The October challenge runs all month long, so there is plenty of time to play along
for your chance to win some YNS prizes or even a Guest Designer spot!!

I chose this image this week so that I could play along with all of the fall and autumn challenges 
that are going on right now and so that I could use more of the yummy 
"Happy Harvest" paper by doodlebug designs that I love so much!!! 
Fall is my favorite time of year and I am loving the colors that I see in Charlotte right now!!
Hopefully, we will be able to head up to the mountains with the girls soon to do some apple picking & 
grab a yummy cider donut...mmmmmmm, I bet that jut got your tummy rumbling...LOL!! 
Happy Fall, Y'all!!!!
