Harvest Blessings

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Today was about me. I had my 3 month visit to the dentist office and time with the hygienist. All is well just a cleaning. Then I was off to my hairdresser for a cut and color. Oh, its so easy to wash that gray right out of my hair (lol).

I did some grocery shopping and then home to make a salmon dinner for hubby & I. He liked it-me not so much. Some recipes are keepers some not.

Oh well, lets move onto my card for today.

This one I made for the sketch challenge on splitcoaststampers. Roxie was our hostess and she gave us a great layout to work into a card. I will probably use this one again.

I decided to make a Thanksgiving card and use no patterned paper. I stamped the background with the "season of change" set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  My ink colors are cherry cobbler, more mustard and old olive.

The middle panel is cardstock and lace. I added a seam binding bow with button. I also stamped a leaf and cut it out and popped it up. I sponged the colors on the leaf and then stamped it. A little hint from my paper doll friend, Betty Wright.

Oh yes, this card was also picked as one of the top 5 faves on Meljens Design blog. Whoo-hoo!!

Well, that's my post for today. So until next time........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Craft Us Crazy blog has an autumn challenge.
2.  The Outlawz twisted Thursday challenge is to use punches or dies. We can use pencils or die inks on our creations. I stamped my images in dye inks.
3Crafts and Me challenges wants us to use buttons & bows.
