Scarecrow Thanks

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. We are having such a beautiful fall day here in Pittsburgh. Lots of sunshine but the temps are a little on the cool side.
Love seeing the sun-we are coming into the time of year where we don't get much. So I appreciate it when its out and shining brightly...

We are having a time of prayer at church tonight to pray for tomorrows elections. My husband & I are heading it up so I wanted to get my post done early.

I have also volunteered to work the polls tomorrow on behalf of one our local candidates. I have never done this before but I thought it's time to get out and support the candidates.

I will be passing out literature and asking people to vote for the candidate. I am excited. I will let you know tomorrow how it went.

Now onto my card for today. This one covers 4 challenges:

1.  The crazy for challenges blog had a sketch posted on Saturday. Our hostess, Silke Ledlow, had this layout posted for us. It makes it easier as a starting point when you have a layout in mind.

2.  The stampin b's blog wanted us to make a thanksgiving card that featured pumpkins. I am still making Thanksgiving cards so this was an easy one.

3.  The challenge this week with speedy's friends was to make a holiday card. I chose Thanksgiving.

4,  The craft your passion blog had an anything goes challenge this week.

I stamped my image on watercolor paper and then used my aqua painter and dye ink to color him. I cut him out with the spellbinders labels 4 die.

My embossed layer is dusty durango and a cuttlebug folder. I also cut out 2 of the pumpkins and used them to complete the sketch requirement.

The designer paper is from Stampin-Up the "autumn vine" collection. My rick rack is a die from MFT. That completes my card for today.

stamps: happy fall y'all, tiny talk
ink: dusty durango, bermuda bay, choc chip, garden green
