Fall Favorites

I pulled out some older retired stamp sets for this card.  I was in the mood to colour, and what better stamp set than "Fall Favorites" (CTMH SOTM) (or Favourites if you're Canadian) to use all the wonderful rich colours of fall.

This little scarecrow is standing guard over the sunflowers and field crops ready to be harvested.  I used my copics B93,B95, B97 for the overalls and R05 and R09 for the shirt.

Cardstock is Autumn Terracotta and Honey along with patterned paper from Sarita collection (CTMH).

The organdy ribbon is from my stash.

Sentiment is from For Every Occasion (CTMH retired).

I decided to have some fun with the envelope and stamped a wee pumpkin from Harvest Home (CTMH retired) and coloured with CTMH autumn terracotta markers.

For my Canadian followers, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving in just a couple of weeks.  I really look forward to this time of year - leaves are changing colours, the air is crisp, and the ground crunches under your feet.  Did I mention the food at this time of year.... all the wonderful varieties of fresh apples.  Oh, and pumpkin pie, and great vegetables.  Yes fall is a time for eating for sure.  I wish you all a wonderful festive fun filled  HappyThanksgiving!!!

For my American followers, I'll be celebrating Thanksgiving with you all in sunny Myrtle Beach.  We'll be having our traditional turkey with all the trimmings on the beach!!! 

Until next time,  enjoy
