Giving Thanks


Today over at Blogger's Challenge our theme is "Falling for You".  You can interpret this theme any way you would like and since I was already creating lots of fall cards as fall is in the air, I went with that.
I used the October Sketch for you to Try.  I was *trying* to be diligent in playing along in all of them this year, but missed a few :-( -no chance for me at the end of year goodies, but I still have fun playing along.


I pulled out this great tree from the Happy Fall set from Clear & Simple Stamps which is perfect at creating some wonderful fall scenes.  Notice the cute little squirrel with the tiny acorn sitting on the park bench?  My dog is going crazy this time of the year with all the squirrels outside.


I colored all the leaves with my Copics and stamped the leaf background onto my marigold for my patterned paper.  As much as I'm addicted to patterned paper (5 new 6 x 6 pads arrived this week), I also LOVE to make my own background papers.

Hope that you will join us at Blogger's Challenge and show us your "Falling for you" creation.

Fabulous Fall card. Love the images (especially the cute squirrel). Great sketch too.
My mom's dog goes wacko over squirrels too and I have a feeder out back.

Love your fall color scheme--and how you placed that little squirrel on the bench. Chloe's crazy about squirrels, too (and rabbits, and people, and pretty much anything that moves--LOL!).
