Friendly Scarecrow

Just playing with more Whipper Snapper images that I got from the PIF thread (thanks Leslie!!) and the K & Company DP from Michael's. This image is called Friendly Scarecrow.

Someone PM'd me yesterday asking about the PIF (that stands for "pay it forward") thread and how to find the current one. I'm sorry, I should have mentioned the current round for those wanting to look into it, and I'll try to do that from now on when I post images I've received there. :) The PIF threads can be found on SCS under Swaps and then under Everything Else. You'll see several rounds listed. As of right now, they are on Round #51 and you can see that thread by clicking HERE. Another way to tell which round is active is to go into the Swaps/Everything Else Forum and look at which one is at the top of the thread. Because it's so active with chatting, it's usually at the top. You can also then click on "Last Page", go to the last reply, and as long as you don't see a note stating that the round is closed, you're good to go! It's a great way to try out images before buying them! The girls are really nice in there too and will help you with the "rules". Pssstt...they LOVE newbies!

Oh, and I saw a message from Gigi under my Crafty Secrets post the other day asking if I knew about any cute Halloween images for ornery boys. Gigi, personally I think THIS ONE and THIS ONE are pretty cute! :) Hope that helps??

Okay, so onto my card.....have I dressed my scarecrow funny with the purple pants? hehe! He was colored with prisma pencils and gamsol, and then I added the halo effect with a Warm Gray Copic marker (W-1).
