Pumpkin Girl Thanksgiving

I didn’t get to use this image last month during the Digi of the Month Challenge at From the Heart Stamps because I just ran out of time. Well this month I thought she would be perfect to match the color scheme over at Scrapbook.com October Card Challenge. So my hubby colored her in photoshop for me to match the color challenge. I used I [heart} card sketches #123 at From the Heart Stamps as my inspiration. The paper had some green dots so I decided to use jewels to cover them up.

I have a lady at the retirement home that has a secret pal so she has a standing order for each holiday. So this will be the Thanksgiving card.
Inside: Wishing you the blessings of the Season. Happy Thanksgiving.

CHALLENGES:
1) October Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – color category – purple, orange, teal, brown, cream/white.

Cornucopia

I’m so glad I have a wonderful husband!! He took time out of his day off to digitally color this image, Cornucopia, in photoshop for me so I could play in the Digi of the Month Challenge at From the Heart Stamps. You can’t tell since the image is small but he even got the weave look inside of the basket.

Oh I love the colors of Autumn….my house is decorated in them!! So I am loving all the challenges out there right now that let me play with orange, brown, rust, and gold. So I decided to make an autumn card to feature Deedee’s Digis Autumn Blessing Image.

Apple Cider Friendship

When I first saw this digital stamp I loved the Friendship quote because it is so true! Last year friends of ours brought over Apple Cider to one of our marriage groups and my husband loved it! So it reminded me of our dear friends that shared their apple cider. I thought it would make a cute gift to package it and have that saying on there. That is how this pocket card gift came about. I used the Pocket Card Tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. I include the paper slip along with the packet of cider so a note could be written to the recipient (see 2nd photo). And yes that is the yummy cider packet my husband now loves!

I decided instead of the apple I would turn mine into a cup.  I printed out the outline image on patterned paper and cut the “cup” out. Then I printed the colored version of image and cut the cider and the leaves out. I glued them together to get the completed look.

CHALLENGES:

1) Simply Create Too Challenge #70 – Fall/Autumn

2) Come and Get It Challenge – Use a digi with an Autumn theme

3) Daring Cardmakers – Food Glorious Food
