Good Morning to Everyone. Hope you are enjoying this wonderful Sunday morning or afternoon. We have a real great challenge this week. I hope that you will like it and participate. Here's my little paragraph about my week because it was a very weird one. The only easy thing that happen was making my card. One day I couldn't get any e-mails and thought that maybe the mail was down but my husbands e-mail worked. We waited the whole day and my husband finally called our provider to find out what had happened to my e-mail account. They shut it down and was going to call and let us know but who knows when. We waited all day for it to work and no phone call. Well, we found out that some how my e-mail was corrupted. Not to sure what that all means but they had to find the problem. After an hour, they had solved the problem but there was also more bad news. I lost every e-mail that came in that day and some of my websites that I get e-mails from I had to re register to get all them to come back. It's been a big problem. Then a couple of days later someone hacked into our cell phones. My husband and the provider of them had to clear everyone of our phones and send all the information to the fraud unit. Later we found out that some lovely person called Cuba on my phone and talked for over an hour. I hope they enjoyed their conversation. We don't have to pay for any of it but it still is a hassle. I wonder sometimes if technology is worth the trouble. OK, done for this week's chat about me. Let's get to the good stuff.
Our challenge is one that I don't think we have ever done before but is fun. Using metal on your card. There is so much out there that is or looks like metal. We have one of our great sponsors that is giving away a good prize for this week's winner. Fred, She Said is that wonderful sponsor. They let us use one of their images to make our card this week. The image that I picked out was "Pumpkin Bouquet." I loved the flowers that are sitting inside the pumpkin. I tried to color the flowers with fall colors. You can use this card as a Thanksgiving card or for someones fall birthday. Fred, She Said is giving away a great prize to the winner this week. Here is what you are playing for.

Now let me show you the card I made with the "Pumpkin Bouquet."
I hope you like the card. I love how the picture turned out. You can see everything on the card. The feathers on the flowers, ribbon around the frame, and the metal buttons that I cut the backs off of them. Let me tell you which products I used to make this.
