Happy Harvest

Whew, down to the wire for the Lawnscaping challenge #137.  Their challenge is to use texture.
What a perfect theme for a fall inspired card.  I love this sweet Lawn Fawn set, Happy Harvest. How cute is this adorable scar-crow!  The sky is my usual HA cloud stamp and the hills are cut with Lawn Fawn, Stitched Hillside Borders.  The gold framed panel was cut from the same background card stock and embossed with a PTI texture plate.  This was such a fun scene to create!
Paper:  HA card, PTI, Neenah and Graphic 45
Ink:  Versafine, MFT and Mama Elephant
Stamps:  Lawn Fawn
Dies:  Lawn Fawn coordinating set, PTI, Stitched Hillside and Borders and Picket Fence
Other:  Copic markers

Be Thankful

I am thankful every day for all that God has given me.  Creativity, a home and family, food to eat and good friends.  What more do you need.  I have not posted in a while because I have been a bit busy with other parts of my life.  I recently had a wonderful visit from some of my favorite "out of town" friends, and it was delightful.  We spent a FUN day in Woodstock, NY.  My card today is for the SSS Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.  I am also entering my card in the current SSS Flickr Challenge #53.

I honestly love the change of seasons.  Each one is a gift of color and inspiration.  In this card, I made die cuts from Tim Holtz Kraft-Core.  I roughed them up with an emory board and then placed them back in the card.  The sentiment was embossed with one of my all time favorites Tsukineko Verdigris.

Paper :  HA card, Kraft Core and scraps

I am so happy that there is one more session of MFT Camp Create! They have such fun challenges and great inspiration.  Day 1 is Monochromatic Magic.  I tell you, it was real hard not to put in a bit of orange and red.  Anyway, I like the way it turned out; and this is about as monochromatic as  I can go.
