Wish BIG!

Happy Sunday! This morning I am enjoying the quiet and stillness of the house and of course my strong, delicious coffee! It is supposed to be a warm one today so figured I would sit and get some blogging done now then will head out for some yard/garden work later on. Autumn is coming very quick here in central Alberta, CANADA...the leaves are already changing, the crops are being harvested - some earlier than normal. Winter will be here soon (yay!) and ya, before you pelt me with rocks and bad words, sorry, but it's my favorite time of the year. I get some downtime and get to rest and craft more = BONUS!!! :) 

Alright - onto why you are here today....this month, over at One Crazy Stamper, the challenge is Autumn and/or Halloween. I don't do much for Halloween normally, but I did have this cutie colored up already on my desk and figured I would add some fall papers and enter him in the challenge!

This will make the perfect birthday card for my nephew, Cooper, as he loves to fish and he always wishes big! I colored this cutie from High Hopes Stamps with Copic Markers and popped up the stamped layer with some foam tape then added some glitter gumdrops. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Broken Fairy Challenge - Anything Goes w/ Fall Colors
