Here are my cards for today.  The first uses a stencil, a fence die and one of the crows.  Intentionally left blank until I know how I want to use it.

My second card uses another stencil and several colours of distress ink with the sentiment from the Scarecrow set.  I thought of Toni and all the goodies she shares from her crop harvests.

Here's the Design Team:


Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
