Things I love about Fall

include the beautiful leaves that are vibrant in colors, the joy of hand picking my own crisp apples at my local apple orchard then returning home to make apple crisp or a pie. 

All this leads me to the next challenge starting today at
And if you haven't guessed it, the theme for this challenge is

Sunset/Fall Colors

This challenge is being sponsored by TWO wonderful digital providers

I was given the pleasure to work with an image from each of these sponsors.

The first image I created with was from Whimsy Stamps
The image was Meljen's Design  Acorn Mouse.

I decided to pull out my PrismaColor Pens & give a try using them to color this image. 
I liked the more subtle look of the colored image.
The Brown Embossed Cardstock is from Coordinations.  I sanded the texture for the inner color to show thru.  If you haven't tried there papers, I would definitely give it a try.
Bakers Twine
The Embellishment - Give Thanks - is from my stash.

The next image I created with was Bethany Baking from Sweet n Sassy Stamps

Since I loved the subtle color using the PrismaColor Pencils, I used them again, but this time along with Copics.
Orange Leave Ribbon is from my stash.
The Leaf I used as an embellishment near the sentiment was a button. 
 Which I then just removed the shank to be able to adhere it to the card with no extra bulk.
Sentiment, Happy Thanksgiving, from my stash.

With this card, I decided to try something different & made what I call a Tri-Fold Card. 
It gives the sender quite a bit of space to write a personal letter/note.

Each of our sponsors this month have been very generous in providing us with some wonderful prizes!

Whimsy Stamps will provide a winner with 5 digital images.


Sweet n Sassy Stamps will provide a winner with 3 digital images.

Now, head over to Crafting for all Seasons to enjoy all the wonderful creations from our design team.
