Hello Blogger friends!! Thanks for taking time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. It was a cold one overnight as the temps were around 37°. A frost is coming for sure this weekend and maybe even snow.
My hubby pulled out our last tomato plants today. We had tomatoes about a month longer than a lot of our friends who were growing them. Not sure why, but I am not complaining. I happily used them. There are about 8 on my window sill right now and about 40 cherry tomatoes. I may roast them to use in a sauce.
We still have flowers blooming but I guess after the frost they will be gone. Here is a photo I took yesterday of ones I cut from our gardens.

Now onto my card for today. This is another I made for the HYCCT challenges on Splitcoaststampers. This was challenge #10 with Joyce as our hostess. She wants us to create a card with something missing. My tree is missing the green leaves of summer. But, it is showing some of the magnificent colors of fall.
I chose the colors of fall for this card using-baked brown sugar, cajun craze, crushed curry and bermuda bay. They are from the SCS 500th color challenge.
I used the Taylored Expressions shade tree cutting plate and cut in brown sugar and cajun craze. I offset the cajun craze panel.
I created some background clouds and sponged with bermuda bay ink.
The pumpkin, leaves and sentiment are from the Verve set "bountiful harvest". I stamped with brown sugar ink on cajun craze and crushed curry cardstock and then fussy cut.
That's my card for today. Time to get back to some household chores I have been putting off. So until next time........God bless.
