Give Thanks

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

It's leaf falling time at our house. We have 2 huge pin oak trees in our front yard and plenty of leaves. My hubby has raked them up 4x times already. Well, he actually uses a blower and gathers them into piles to pick up. 

This particular oak drops half of the leaves in the Fall and the other half in the Spring.  We haven't' reached the halfway point yet. The neighbors will be glad when this is over because they get a lot of our leaves as well. Fortunately, we have great neighbors, and they just get their leaf blowers out and pick up what falls in their yards. 

Speaking of leaves that is what my card is all about today. I made this one for Thanksgiving. I am behind on Thanksgiving cards and need to get a move on them.

I used the colors from the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #919. We were to use cajun craze, mossy meadow and mango melody for our color trio. Optional was to add gold. 
cajun craze, mossy meadow, mango melody
I thought these colors would work well for a Thanksgiving card. I cut my leaves with mango melody cardstock and then sponged with mango melody and cajun craze inks. I also added some mossy meadow greenery. The leaf die is from CottageCutz 

The background designer paper is from the Stampin' Up "come to gather" collection. My sentiment is using the Autumn Greetings stamp set also from Stampin' Up.

For the gold option I used sequins and 2 gold strips to frame the image panel. Well, that's it for me for this post. So, until next time......God bless.
