Autumn Blessings

Hello Happy Bloggers! I love making autumn themed cards! This is an awesome digital image called Autumn Tweetings by Judi Maddigan over @ Angels Landing!

The cs is SU! really rust and the DP is K&co. It's colored with pencils & markers, the swirls are sizzix and the sentiment CG. Again, I went clean & simple (CAS)! Sorry, that seems to be my style right now!

This will be one of the cards I'll duplicate for my, "I'm thankful for you in my life!" mailing. For people who have touched my [family's] life this year! So many lovely people bless us throughout the year in little, easy to miss ways! I want them to know we didn't miss it, that we really do appreciate even the littlest favor or gift! It's a good thing! (quoting Martha Stewart) lol

Here are some challenges...
The Play Date Cafe~colors.
Stampin' Sisters in Christ~being thankful.
Bee Crafty~distressing.
Saturday Surprise~autumn.
Gingersnap Creations~harvest.
Daring Cardmakers~fav things...swirls
Digi Kitty~colors.

Again, we have a dreary, rainy day and the leaves are really falling! The trees will be bare soon, how sad! Enjoy the last of our seasonal view...from this past weekend!




Thanks for stopping by! Autumn Blessings!!!
