Fall cardmaking weekend

Hi there!  I'm in a fall card-making mood today.  I did all my errands earlier today, started a huge crock pot full of chili, put hubby to work chopping fresh produce we purchased at the farmer's market this morning, and retreated to my craft room.  After considerable time surfing for the current challenges, and checking out and commenting on blogs, I finally got to work.
Here is my first card:
These are the challenges I'm entering:
MOJO MONDAY  http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/
Sketch challenge
Here's the sketch, which I love!

ALLSORTS CHALLENGE http://allsortschallenge.blogspot.com/
Take inspiration from a song title  - I chose Autumn Song by Van Morrison (listen here) http://mp3shake.com/en/Van_Morrison/229576-Autumn_Song_mp3_download.html
MOXIE FAB WORLD http://www.moxiefabworld.com/
Use pleats on your card
IMPRESSION-OBSESSION CHALLENGE http://mitrafriant.typepad.com/impression_obsession_news/
Favorite quote or poem - I chose this quote by Keats:
"Seasons of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells."

-   John Keats,
To Autumn   
That's it for tonight.  Off to spend some time with hubby now.  
Blessings and peace,
lynda
