Beautiful Warm Colors of Fall

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian friends and bloggers who celebrate Thanksgiving at a time of the year different than those of us in the USA.  May you have a blessed day with family and friends celebrating this beautiful and festive time of the year.  The beautiful warm colors of fall with the reds, oranges, browns, yellows, and greens seems to be a favorite for a lot of us with cooler temperatures and low humidity.  After such a hot summer it is wonderful to be able to open up all the windows and feel the cool and crisp air.

Finally getting back into my craftroom after what seems like forever and I'm so lovin it!!  Here are a few challenges I've designed this card for and I sure hope you like it:

Pink {INK} Sketch - Sketch (altered sizes)
Stamptacular Sunday - PHOTO Inspiration
Shopping Our Stash - Thanksgiving or Thank You Card
Paper Sundaes - Lots of Layers
Anything Goes Challenge - Die cuts/Punches or Both
Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes - Happy 4th Birthday
Elphine House - Tasty Treats
Bells'n Whistles - Your Favorite Color Choices (Fall is mine this time of the year)
Phew, this is a lot for me.......

All of the items used on this card are from my stash, absolutely nothing new here.  The image is an Elisabeth Bell image from Bells'n Whistles named Hearty Thanksgiving and can be purchased HEREstamped with Memento Ink and colored with Copics, Flower Soft for the grass.  The DP is from a year or two ago and I think it's Debbie Mum.  I cut out and used some of the items from the paper pack for embellishments, Marianne and Spellbinder's Dies.  Here is a side view that gives you a peek at the inside:
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope I've left you with a little inspiration today.  Oh, I almost forgot, I won the newest digi from The September Digi Bell's Hop and is she ever adorable (I'm Jumpin for Joy) - oops, not the name of the stamp...lol. You'll be seeing her soon.

Have a wonderful day!
"Love & Hugs" Carol
