Now, for the two projects I've created for you today. 
 The first one is Pumpkin Fields:

 I used Copic markers to color and Spica glitter pens to highlight certain areas.  Spellbinders Labels Five (#2 and #6 - assuming #1 is the smallest) and Spellbinders Flourish Impressabilities were also used.  The sentiment is from a set that is no longer available made by Stampin' Up.  Wild Honey Distress inks was used to ink up the sides and the sentiment.

Copic colors: YR15, YR16, YR18,    YG01, YG03,    B0000,    YR20, E13,    R37, YR68, Y13,    E25, E27, E47.  I left them in the groupings that I colored the different sections in.

 The second project is Sammy Scarecrow.  Isn't he cute?

I used a special kind of paper called cryogen paper for this project.  The paper has a subtle metallic, sparkly look to it.  Here is a close up so you can see the sparkles embedded in the paper - very cool looking in person. 

 Sammy is colored with Copic markers.  The birds image is by Tim Holtz (Stampers Anonymous) and the sentiment is by DRS Designs.  Spellbinder's  Mega Curved Rectangles die (#4) was used to die cut the image.

Copic colors: Y21, E31, E33   R14, R17   E000, E00, E11   E08, E09, E50   Y15, Y17, B21, B26, R35, R46, R89, YR04, YR07   W3, W4, W5   G03, G07   B00.  I left them in the groupings that I colored the different sections in.

You are not going to believe what else we have to offer today – I have been given Pete Plumber to give away during the blog hop this week. It's an extra prize that only I get to give away!   (You will want to be sure to visit each blog because I have heard that every DT Hero has been gifted with a surprise give away just for you!!)

This Blog Hop does not have a starting and ending point so no matter where you HOP on you are in the right place.  Just keep going.  Don't forget to leave some love everywhere you land, including here! Once you have gone full circle you have completed the Hop.
We are so excited to link you to  Miss Cleota next!
We hope you like what you see! We certainly had a blast putting it together for you!!

Don't forget all of the images you see will be for sale in the Store by 10:00 a.m. EST today!
