Fall, fairies and...pumpkins

Hi, everyone! We are heading straight into autumn here in Romania, that's unquestionable. I should pack off all our summer clothes, that's such a sad event:(. I read on numerous blogs about people who actually love autumn, I personally hate to see the beautiful summer degrading... The good part is that I love grapes... he he... and the beautiful autumnal colors, like the ones on my card:



And back to our sheep now...lol:  our new challenge theme at Mo's Digital Pencil Too is :
Punches and Dies,

what could be easier than that? Maybe for you, not for me anymore:( my Big Shot just got jammed, fortunately not before I had finished my card. No idea how exactly I succeeded to do that, this tool always seemed to me unbreakable, well, I just can't turn the handle anymore. I guess I'll have to buy a new one soon enough:(

For my card I merged two Mo Manning stamps: this cute Fall Fairy Jensen and lots of  Pumpkins. I think it turned out nice:)

Here are some close-ups:


Sorry for the bad pics, I have problems taking them lately.



Ingredients: 
Stamps: Mo Manning- Fall Fairy Jensen and Pumpkins
Medium: copics/promarkers
DP: Basic Grey- Pyrus- from Bunny Zoe- cannot find it now, I think it's retired
Embellishments: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon from stash, button from Bunny Zoe
quilled flowers and glittered mosaic
Die-cuts: Magnolia Doohikeys- Tilda lace, nestabilities- Fancy Tags, nestabilties- ovals grand
Sentiment: computer generated

My card is for sale in my Etsy shop here.

Here's the sentiment, in case someone wants it. Just click on the pic to enlarge it and save it on your computer:


Now, on to you: hurry up and make good use of your die-cutting machines...oh, I'm so green with envy you all get to play while I just have to find a way to convince my hubby it is as important as the food we put on the table...lol.

I also have lots of challenges for my card:
Crafting for all Seasons - Things with Wings, Creative Belli -Autumn, Fab 'n' Funky -  Things with Wings, Paper Shelter Challenge -Fall colors/image, Bearly Mine - Fall Colours, Sassy Cheryl's -Die Cuts, Sweet Stamps -Shades Of Autumn, Party Time Tuesdays - Picture/Colour Challenge, One Stitch At A Time - Autumn, The Crafty Pad - Autumn Colours: Brown, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green (at least 2 colours) , Colour Me Creative Challenge -Fall Colours, Crafty Ann's - Sketch* and/or Autumnal colour scheme, Fairy Tale - Autumn

Thank you all for peeking at my part of the world, hope you are having a great time enjoying the last days of summer!
Hugs,

The fall colors are magnificent.. especially since I am one of those people who love the fall. That chrispness in the air, and the colors are just perfect for me as is your card.

Hugs

P.S. Sorry about your big shot..

Gorgeous autumn project, Iulia. LOVE your colouring. Looks so great!! And all the papers and embellies are a perfect match.
Hope you will be able to fix your big shot machine. My friends one got broken as well a while ago. I still have my cuttlebug and am wondering that she is doing all what I lead her trough without any problems... ;o)) Couldn't imagine to be without my dear die cutting machine.
Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Karina

Sweet Iulia, I think we are soulmates: Me too, hate the summer is leaving and have to pull out all those warm clothes! :-/
And although I am a summer girl I absolutely love your autumnly creation! Your colouring is outstanding, the wonderful merged images look so real, esp. the pumpkins. Just fantastic!

Sorry about your BigShot. You really must be a powerful girl! ;o) Hope you can manage to get a new one soon. What are we crafty chicks without our cutting machines? *lol*

Hugs from today sunny but cold Germany,
Anja ♥

Iulia - I had the same thing happen to my Big Shot. My son took the whole thing apart (that took a while) and he took the bearings out of the handle (they were ruined) and now it works perfect (in fact it works better than before). He didn't think it would very well after but its been about 3 months and it still works fine. So if you or someone else feels comfortable taking it apart go for it. Lovely card by the way. He is one of my favorite images from Mo.
Blessings,
Michelle
