Give Thanks

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

We are having such a beautiful Fall day here in Pittsburgh. Blue skies and lots of sunshine but a bit on the cool side. I guess Fall is working it's way in gradually. It just jumped so quickly from hot and humid to these cool temps. And, I am not putting my heat on when I just had the air running for most of the summer (LOL)!!! And we had big electric bills to prove it.  

Anyway, let's move onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #860 on Splitcoaststampers. Jeanne was the hostess and she chose pumpkin pie, crushed curry, balmy blue and early espresso for her color combination. Optional was to make a Fall card. 

The watering can tulips, cornucopias and oval dies from CottageCutz were used to create a fall card. The background striped paper in crushed curry is from the Stampin'-Up "follow your art" collection.

I used a pumpkin embossing folder for the center panel. The leaves are sponged with fossilized amber, carved pumpkin and spiced marmalade distress inks. They match the Stampin'-Up shades for this week.

For the watering can, I cut in gray granite (neutral) and added some balmy blue for trim. I sponged the cardstock with the same shade of ink. The sentiment is from the "Autumn Greetings" stamp set from Stampin'-Up. 

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