Creative Inspirations Challenge ~ Fall / (Feeling Nutty...but nice)

Hi Everybody!
Well I said I wouldn't be back til the weekend was over but I lied! :-)
No, actually I forgot that I had a DT assignment coming "public" today so I had to get my booty in gear and write this up. (had the card made for ages now, cos I'm one of those too punctual people that drives everyone nuts!~ no pun intended!)
But i am feeling rather... nutty...
So, back to the challenge! Creative Inspirations challenge this fortnight is Halloween/Fall. But as I don't do Halloween, I took them up on the Fall option, which was quite fun.
Recipe:
Image: Mo Manning
Colors: Prismacolors
Paper: No idea (Its a personal branch of the "Me and My Big Ideas" line. lol!)
Crazy Grunge Stitching: Another crazy idea of mine to go with the
embellies: acorns!


Some close ups:
the grunge stitching...


and clever little acorns I sent my daughter out to find..



So, if they'll have me , I would like to enter this in the following:

Little Red Wagon: something old something new (new digi, old acorns)
Color Throwdown: color theme
Raise The Bar: Get a Hobby (collecting)

I hope you all can join in on the challenge at Creative Inspirations! You have a whole fortnight to make something fallish! :-)

Hmmm, I actually own that image and had totally forgotten about it!! Sooooo cute with a perfect quirky edge!!! Acorns on the card is one of the coolest things I've sen lately, wish I'd thought of it myself now. And being punctual is NOT nutty. Just nice.
