Thankful For U

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by!
We are still in the middle of a hot, muggy summer here in southeast Alabama, but the latest challenge going on over at Peachy Keen Stamps has me ready to work on fall projects.  This week's challenge is a color challenge using the colors, purple, cream, orange, brown and green.  With fall on my mind, this is what I came up with....

Just a few days ago, I made a trip to Hobby Lobby and they had their fall items marked down 40% (already).  This card was just perfect to use a few of my new embellishments!

* Card base - kraft paper with the corners rounded off
* Printed paper - scraps from several other projects
* I machine stitched around the edges of green plaid paper
*  Brown burlap ribbon - Hobby Lobby
* Fall floral spray - Hobby Lobby
* Raffia with button - Hobby Lobby
* Scarecrow - Cricut's "Simply Charmed" cut at 5 inches
* Face - Peachy Keen Stamp set "Monster Mash Face Assortment"
* Sentiment - Pink By Design "Bracketful"

Now I'm really in the mood for fall!  But, I'm sure it's still at least a good 2 months away for us, if not longer.  I hope you have a good week and I'll be seeing you soon!

Oh, before I go...thank you all for the sweet comments about my headaches. They will come and go with the crazy summer weather, but at least I can deal with them and really have no right to complain. But, I am thankful for your comments and guys are great! 

Until next time,
