Create 4 fun *39*

I can't believe I just found out about this challenge ~ but it was a wonderful sketch by Tiets so I had to give it a shot. I also got my stamps that I won from the Belles and Whistles blog hop so I decided on a Thanksgiving card. I tend to make a bunch of these up as I love this Holiday but don't get to get together with my family so I like to send a card letting them know that I am thinking of them and am very thankful for them. This is not the card I intended to make but at the end this was the image that fit best. I think she is just adorable!! Again I went over some edges with distress inks and my image was colored with Distress inks and twinkling h20's. I also scrapped the edges with my scissors.

Well thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a beautiful fall day!! It is really starting to look like fall here. I have already raked up 2 bags of leaves and today the wind is blowing hard and it looks like I will be busy with the raking later this week!


Paper: Bo Bunny, Kraft Cardstock
Inks: Distress Inks and twinkling h20's (spiced pumpkin, Jasper Red)
Accessories: pearls ~ Mike's, button and twine ~ stash, lace ~ Fabric Store

And wow on raking leaves already, we probably have two weeks before we're doing that...although our cold weather is supposed to hit tomorrow, a drop in 30* from yesterday! Brrr!

Hi Kathy! Your card is superb in every way, this is going to be a real treat for your parents when they receive it. Your colouring is so beautiful and the papers and design are gorgeous, it really does have an autumnal feel to it. I know how the leaf raking is, what a job, we have big trees at the bottom of our garden and soon they'll be falling but they haven't quite started yet! I emailed you the other day from the email addy on your profile, did you receive it? Hope you don't have too many leaves tomorrow! Hugs, Chris x
