For this card, I combined Unscripted 27 and Penny's Challenge. The funny thing is when I saw "autumn theme" for Penny's challenge I stopped reading...I was happy because autumn is my favorite time of year...and didn't noticed that it said "must include a tree." LOL In case you can't tell, the tree on the inside was an after thought. I've included a couple of haikus I quickly jotted down about my favorite time of year. Once again, thanks for stopping by - I appreciate you!

My Season
Autumn watlzes in,
dancing to the music of

Changing, letting go,
an expectant synonym.
Death brings me new life.

Hoping you are enjoying this wonderful season,

I created a few more Thanksgiving Day cards. This first one uses the The Sweet Shop Sketch and includes a Sweet -n -Sassy scripture on the inside. If you are looking for scripture stamps, check them out! I also think this card fits the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge #7 because I think changing leaves and fall foliage SHOUT the majesty of God. The following two use the Mojo Monday Sketch which I had a very difficult time with!

The last four were quick cards using scraps.

Hope you are taking time to dwell on those things that you are thankful for...sure makes for a happy heart!

CPS 136

I thought it might be a good idea to have some Thanksgiving Day cards on hand when I have my card sale in a little over a I used the CPS 136 sketch to whip up these three cards:

As I was making these, I was "counting my blessings" and realized that I could go on and on and's a few that came to mind (in no particular order)
1. Gorgeous Colorado weather
2. Start of GraceLife Advanced Training
3. A wonderful husband
4. Laughter
5. Friendships
6. Taste buds!
7. Being able to be an "at home" mom.
8. A craft room!
9. Crocs
10. The knowledge that my Creator and Savior is always in control :-)
Hope your weekend has been filled with blessings too numerous to count!
Marie with a :-)
