Autumn Leaves and Thanksgiving

Hi All,

I know lately I haven't been posting quit as often but things have or I should say were busy these last couple of months. Now things are slowing down for me even though the holidays are coming. So I have decided to post something every week or more if I can. I have one project I am currently working on and I can't wait to share it with you all. I am planning on posting part one of the project after Thanksgiving.

Well with Thanksgiving coming this week I want to say Thank you to all my followers, all my circle friends and those who come by who visit my blog. Thanks for all your lovely comments and support. So today I am posting a card I made for Thanksgiving. This is the first time I ever used Flower Soft, I am totally  loving this product and then I applied some Liquid Applique so the clouds would be fluffy. I used the Autumn color, I think it looks pretty good.

The inside of the Card I used a tag with an embossed gold sentiment and I placed it a little crooked.
The Flower Soft I used.

Paper: Su - More Mustard; Recollections - Brown; Design Paper from my stash;
Ink: Bic markers; Memento ink - Rich Cocoa: TH - vintage applies around the edges of my card and tag.
Stamp: Inky Antics - Leaves & Trees
Accessories: embossing powder-gold; Flower-soft - Autumn (bought from Flourishes, link is on the sidebar under Sites I enjoy or; Ribbon -  brown & yellow from stash.

As always I wanted to let you all know the site challenges I enter are all found from Paper Playful. Of course Challenges 4 everybody, Outlawz and paperplaytime are already on listed on my sidebar but their links are also found below with the challenges I entered. I did find a few new blog sites such as, Craft a Scene which is a site designed for scenic creations using stamps, digital images, hand painted or drawings. Then there is Great Impressions which is a fantastic site with some awesome projects and  DT inspiration. The last one is Craftitude - paper crafting with attitude, love the title of this site, so I had to join their challenge since my card has leaves on it. All of these sites have some awesome images, sponsors and prizes definitely would love to win one of these challenges. :D So stop by, check them out and get inspired, you won't be disappointed.
