happy monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. I went to the local stamp store tonight with kendra & aaron.
we picked out their cardstock colors so I can get a sample wedding invitation together. I mentioned this in a previous post.

we found the paper immediately and it matches so well with the colors of her bridesmaids dresses.
that is always good when you don't have to search and search.
the paper is from paper cuts and is a beautiful, shimmery chocolate shade called echo and the accent color is another gorgeous fall color called copper ore.
This color looks like the gorgeous shade of orange you see on the fall leaves.

oh, did I say her wedding is next October? she is giving me plenty of time to get these done. I believe I am making 115.
When I get a sample together that they both like I will post it here. I probably will not start them until after christmas.
although, I know kendra will be excited to see it sooner if I can get it done.

so now onto my card for today. I made one of my last 2 thanksgiving cards. in fact, I am sending this one to kendra's parents.

it actually cover 3 challenges. the first is saturday's sketch challenge from crazy for challenges. I really liked the layout they provided.

then for my color scheme I used our creative corners colors this week of choc chip, close to cocoa, pumpkin pie and white. I used this great Heidi grace paper called harvest row.

the 3rd challenge is the stampin sisters in christ challenge . we were to create a thanksgiving card. I used the cuttlebug embossing folder called autumn type for the thankfulness word. My sunflower is an embossed die-cut from my stash. it's from we r memory keepers.

well, its a wrap for another day my friends. I leave you today with the scripture chosen by helen phelps from the stampin sisters challenge group:

Galatians 6:9

Let us not become weary in doing good,
for at the proper time
we will reap a harvest
if we do not give up. (NIV)

card recipe:
paper: su pumpkin pie, choc chip, heidi grace dsp
accessories: cb ef, we r memory keepers die cuts, brads
