"Missing You" for Meljen's Challenge


I love this funny guy - he is called "Farmer Crow" and is one of Meljen's digital images. The theme for Meljen's current challenge is 'Missing You' and doesn't he just look so lost and lonely and missing someone to come home and help him with the farming? It clearly is too much for him - all the raking of the leaves and gathering all that corn! I paper pieced the image (body included) - my most favorite thing to do - and I love the colors of the papers! So much fun to cut and paste!

I used the extra leaves from the different patterned papers to make the leaf piles at the bottom. I glued them to white cardstock and then cut around the groupings so that they had a white border to match the one around the Farmer Crow image. For some fun viewing, go to to see the great card entries for the challenge. Meljen's images are so much fun to work with!

Thank you for visiting my blog today! I love the colors of Autumn and Halloween and all of the cards and projects that I see being created on everyone's blogs at this time of year! Wishing you a happy day!
