Welcome to another Sunday challenge and a new month already. I can not believe that we are in November already. This year has went by really fast. I wish one year wouldn't feel like it's flying by so fast. For the end of October, I could not believe that we were under Tornado Warnings. They set the alarms off at 1:00 am. Talk about waking up to something weird. There were four tornado's that touched down about an hour from us. The winds were so terrible that you didn't know if anything was going to happen or not. I do feel bad for the people that did get hit from them. There were trailers that were totally knocked off there platforms. The only thing that did happen here was some shingles came off our garage. That is something that we can fix though. I thought all this dangerous weather was gone until Spring. Now all we have to worry about is blizzards that may hit. I love the snow so I won't mind just one. By the way, my daughter did not make the basketball team. They did give her pointers to try out for next years season. Her two friends didn't make it either. I was sad for all of them. Such long faces they had.
Robyn is our great sponsor this week for our "Thanksgiving" challenge.( My family is already talking about Thanksgiving and what we are doing and cooking.) The design team was allowed to pick from the Thanksgiving images that Robyn has in her store. I found this one that was a little of what you would see on the outside of the house at Thanksgiving. Pumpkins and a Scarecrow that are getting ready for the holiday to end. You can go to Robyn's Fetish's Shop and see all her images for Thanksgiving and also the ones for Christmas that is coming up. This is the prize that Robyn will be giving the winner this week.
3 Images
Of The Winner's Choice From
The Robyn's Fetish Shop
Now let me show you my card and see what I did with her image called Scarecrow and Pumpkins. I named the card Happy Harvest.
I really hope that you find this cute. I liked the way it turned out. When I was thinking of what I was going to do I knew that scarecrows are made with burlap sometimes. So, I want to use it on my card somehow. This is what I did come up with. My daughter gave it an A so I'm good LOL. Here are the items that I used to make this card.
Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- DCWV
Burlap -- The Paper Studio
Thread For Stitching -- DMC
Pumpkin and Star Embellishment -- Dress It Up
Font Used -- Snap ITC
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils
Well I hope that you enjoyed this weeks post. I know I had fun making it. Hope you all have a great week and don't forget to add your cards to Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog.
