Give Thanks

Time for another Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge and this week, we challenge you to use these colors:
I used this sketch from Our Creative Corner:

The colors also fit this Create with Connie and Mary challenge:
I used Fall Charlotte again, she just looks so content, love her!  I have also incorporated the following challenges: Catch the Bug - Fall Colors and sewing; Raise the Bar - orange, green and brown; Paper Sundaes - 3 different embellishments.  All supplies are from CTMH (new pattern paper called Olivia), except the image, burlap and punch.  Now in case you are wondering why Charlotte looks so shiny.... this is the best picture I could get of her.  I was going to pretend that I meant to do it... but after she was all done I ran her through my Xyron to stick her down.   Well, I made magnetic nametags for my class last week and didn't take the magnet cartridge out... so.... Charlotte is now a magnet!  Curses!  Always change your cartridge when you are finished with it!  Although what a cute fall magnet she is!  Yah, I change my mind... I meant to do that! LOL!

Very pretty card! I love the burlap. It gives such a pretty texture--and adds a little bit of fall to your card. Thanks for playing along with the Bugaboo challenge.

Well, I sure think she is cute as a magnet! I can well imagine how frustrated you might have felt at first, but I love how you used her anyway. That burlap adds a wonderful texture to the card. Great job!
