A Time To Give Thanks - Autumn Card

The siding contractors are just about finished with the house!  I'm so over the noise and interruptions, but thankful for the lovely new exterior on the home we have occupied for 36 years!

I am wrapping up my fall/Thanksgiving cardmaking.  I adore this time of year, and making cards in the deep fall hues and colors.  But, alas, Christmas is creeping ever closer, and I need to get cracking on those projects soon.  

For this card, I used chalk pastels, and Impression-Obsession stamps.  I started with an A2 kraft colored card, and decided I wanted to keep it one layer.  I stamped the berries with VersaMark, then used a cotton applicator to apply the color to them.  The verse was stamped with TH distress inks in walnut stain.  A white spattering of acrylic paint, some white colored pencil on the berries, and a hand-written border of thankful words complete my card today.

My card today is for these challenges:

Impression-Obsession Challenge - Thanksgiving Wishes

Cas-ual Fridays challenge - Orange, brown, and kraft colors

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Thanks/Thanksgiving

Sunday Stamps challenge  - Autumn splendor

The Daily Marker  - 30 day color challenge

Thanks so much for stopping in today.  I hope you are getting the lovely warm days that we are.  It could get up to 70 degrees tomorrow here in upstate New York!  Mid November!  We'll take it!
