Crafty Gals November Challenge!!!


Hello everyone!!!. November challenge with the Crafty Gals!!!. I would like to invite you to check everyone's blog, we have a wonderful creative group.

This month our hostess is our sweet Jackie and she challenged us like this:

"November is for Thanksgiving and we all have so many things to be thankful for so my challenge for you this month is to create a project to showcase our Blessings. It can be a card, shadowbox, picture frame, scrapbook layout, mini album, etc. Please make whatever your heart desires as long as it features what your are thankful for and I also want to use a fall theme for your creations".

Of course the first thing that came to my mind when thinking about thankfulness were my kids and my family but I couldn't think of a stamp to show that. Then in my church's magazine, I read about the responsibility we have to take care of our world because that was God's precious gift to us. The post talked about taking care of our nature and then I saw this lovely stamp by Riley and Company. Fall is my favourite season. I LOVE fall colours and I pictured God painting all this beautiful colours for us to enjoy.

Also I'm using this card for the Deconstructed Sketch Challenge #76 and Riley and Company Challenge Riley2212.

For this card I used:

Cardstock: Really Rust, Summer Sun and Whisper White from SU
Designer Paper: Lost and Found2 from My Mind's Eye
Stamps: Under the Tree Riley and Company and the sentiment is from the set Just Believe from SU
Accessories: Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Round stax die and Fishtail die from MFT, Scallop border punch from SU. Pearls from Recollections, Copic Markers and Paper piercing tool kit from SU.

Thanks for looking!!!
