Well hopefully this is the last fall card I will have to make this year. I had to do one last fall card for a Guest Designer Challenge on the Caardvark's blog, and I also decided to use it for Patter Cross's Scripture Challenge #47 'Thankful'. As one season comes to end, I always get so 'tired' of making the same style of card. Now I need to start making my Christmas Card, and I'm sure in about two or three weeks, I'll be tired of those too! LOL!
Anyhow, because its Thanksgiving week, Patter wanted us to focus on being Thankful. I am thankful for many things, first of all that Jesus died for me, that is the most precious thing to me. But I am also thankful for the wonderful family and friends I have, my beautiful home, my pets, the fact that my husband STILL has a job during this uneasy economy, and for very good health this past year. And I'm really happy that I don't have to have a 'real job' and therefore have a lot of time to express my creativity thru my crafts, garden, and home.
This card was made using a very old, retired Stampin Up! set called 'Season of Thanks.' The Cardstock Colors are Stampin Up! 'Naturals Ivory', 'Close to Cocoa', 'Old Olive', 'More Mustard', and 'Really Rust'. I colored the image with copic markers. The Sentiment is mounted up on dimensionals. The 'More Mustard' panel was embossed with the Cuttlebug "Houndstooth" Embossing Folder. The leaf is from Stampin Up! 'With Gratitude' and is stamped in Versamark. I added ribbon and raffia for embellishment.
Till Tomorrow, Amy
