Happy Autumn

Happy Thanksgiving my American peeps.
I hope you are able to spend the day with loved ones
doing something you truly enjoy: FEASTING!!!!
I love pumpkin pie, I think I will buy one and
eat it all myself in one sitting!!
My great aunt Jamie would always host Thanksgiving.
The fudge, all the home-made pies,
turkey, 'taters, eggnog, football, family...
Such wonderful memories that I am fortunate to have.
I won't talk politics, but I don't really celebrate
this day, although I relish the excuse to hang out
with family and friends and eat some of our
seasons delectable bounty.
Not like that happens for me out here in Kansas,
but that is beside the point!!

This is a seasonal card I made,
I HOPE the sentiment says Happy Autumn,
I've used MME Out and About and Bloom & Grow papers
because I know we are all getting a little sick
of the fall and Christmas papers, a nice change
but it still works I think.
Tilda is coloured with a layer of watercolour
and then I've enhanced the colours with distress inks.

Here is a look at the inside,
there is a pocket added for storage of this little bag
which is just a paper bag with a hole punched in it
and a gingham ribbon strung through it.

A side view of the layering and blooms for ya.
You can see the pewter applique and glitter this way.

I've used the sketch over at
Magnolia-licious Highlites,
and over at Creative Inspirations
the challenge is to create a pocket on our projects.

Welp, I hope everyone has a wonderful day
and thanks for stopping by!!
